Made from 100 per cent organic bamboo from sustainably managed forests, they tick the eco-friendly box. For a straw to be truly sustainable, it should not only be made as sustainability as possible in the first place, but should also be able to be recycled or composted at the end of its life. The easiest reusable straws to clean are those that come with a special brush or are suitable for use in a dishwasher. If you're someone who can’t live without straws, there are plenty of more eco-friendly alternatives to single-use plastic ones. Although the feeling of using a glass straw takes a little getting used to, we came around to these for a number of reasons.

If you find a variety that's dishwasher safe and can be recycled at the end of its life, then we think it’s one of the best choices. You can find other alternatives to single-use plastic straws, which are better for the environment because they can be composted, but are still one-use as they deteriorate quickly. is just right – not too long, nor too short for your average glass – and the thickness is perfect too. However, although it seems to tick a lot of boxes, there’s no denying that the mouthfeel of this straw isn’t as good as others. We tried several varieties of each material, using them to drink from varying glass sizes, and with different drinks.Plus, although many metal straws come with cleaning brushes and some are dishwasher safe, it's harder to tell if they are cleaner than a glass or clear plastic straw. For this, we looked at how transportable the straws were – did they collapse or fold down for easy transporation? There’s no faffing around to build and piece the straw back together, it simply extends up to 19cm (a pretty ideal straw length). If you haven't washed your straws and they have dried-on bits inside them then soak them first and then wash as before.

Plus, bamboo doesn’t transfer heat as much as metal or glass straws, so they can be used for hot and cold drinks. The most common gripes with metal straws are that they can impart a metallic taste on drinks, can clink against the teeth and, as metal is extremely heat conductive, you can't use them with hot drinks. There are a lot of metal straws on the market right now and you might be fooled into thinking that they’re all the same, but after testing several different brands, we found a surprising amount of variation.Our testing panel also liked the slight, but not drastic bend, and the slightly ridged surface at the point where the straw meets the glass, meaning it doesn’t slip around in the glass as much as others do.

You might assume that a reusable straw is a better option for the environment than a single-use plastic one, but what about when you eventually want to stop using it?Although they're at risk of smashing, glass straws are generally sturdy and are a hygienic option, as you can see how clean the inside is. Our judges liked the mouthfeel of these straws and their ability to be bendy or straight, but thought the bendiness was extreme to the point of looking a bit silly. Despite not being labelled as dishwasher safe, Lulu frequently washes hers in the dishwasher and they’ve stood the test of time. For a start, they’re hardy and can be reused and washed plenty of times, but the best part is that, when you do finally want to get rid of them, they're biodegradable. As we become increasingly aware of the detrimental effects of single-use plastic on the environment, we're always looking for ways to cut down.
