The Best Silicone Reusable Straws

If you’re looking to reduce your reliance on single-use plastic, but you still want to use a straw to sip on your favorite iced coffees and smoothies, a silicone reusable straw stands out as a great alternative. Silicone straws tend to be soft, flexible, and less temperature-sensitive than metal and glass straws, so they can be a good option for children who tend to bite down on the straw, and for those with sensitive teeth. If you do make the switch to silicone reusable straws, make sure to clean them regularly in the dishwasher (according to care instructions) and with a straw brush. To help you find the right straw for you, we’ve pulled together a few great options, featuring different lengths, diameters, collapsibility, and prices.
