    Has anyone seen a promo for reuseable straws - bamboo, stainless steel or glass?

    Hoping to make a statement that we are concerned about the environment in some small way.

    I don't think I have ever seen a promo or sale for resuseable straws, unfortunately. I did recently find a number of different kinds on the Pure Anada site (a Canadian business) last week. If you click on the heading, "Other Brands" in the menu at the top of the page, you'll find them. My favourites are the Glass Sipper straws - so cute!

    The Danesco smoothie (wide) silicone straws with a cleaning brush are $10.96 after the 20% discount at Home Outfitters. I noticed that the same straws are on sale at Longos for $8.99 until this Thursday. HO may also have the stainless steel straws but steel is rather hard on teeth.
    Danesco also has more regular size silicone straws with a brush too-not sure which stores have them.

    Walmart.ca steel straw prices: https://www.walmart.ca/search/steel%20straw
    And its bamboo straws: https://www.walmart.ca/search/bamboo%20straw

    GoodnessMe is showing a promo on its stainless steel straws https://goodnessme.ca/search?q=straws

    Canadian Tire carries one kind of silicone straw and one kind of stainless steel straw: https://www.canadiantire.ca/en/searc....html?q=straws

    Grocery Gateways shows a hard plastic silly straw-the kind with loops and squiggles (I used to have them a long time ago):

    I noticed that the recent LCBO magazine had an ad for the GO-Sip straws (glass or steel) that (wait for it) had silicone connectors! Thing is, I could not determine from the supplier's website who actually sells that item in my area. I kept finding stores that carry products from the supplier but not that one specifically.

    I'd go gaga for the glass version. The silicone parts are the selling point-cushioning for the teeth against hard surfaces. Would love to give the straws as gifts to friends who live in cars due to commutes/or have to lunch in cars as there is no set lunch area at work. I know the paper straws have a limited usefulness once dunked in an open bevvie can.

    Just did a random type-in and Well.ca sells the Final Touch Go-Sip product!

    As does Bergo Designs: https://www.bergodesigns.ca/

    A Toronto store sells them too: https://www.cocktailemporium.com/col...ulti-use-straw

    For BC and AB residents, check House of Knives for the product (now on a sale price!)

    Decided to check if Metro online sells any reusable straws and found those squiggly hard plastic ones I used to have!
