We use 8-10 a week.

8 dawn yoder February 4, 2010 at 1:44 pm

my dd thinks she needs a new straw each time she gets a drink. she uses them for crafts, she uses them like tinker toys, she uses them in her doll house...whatever her wild and wonderful imagination comes up with! I think we probably easily go through 20+ a week!

9 dawn yoder February 4, 2010 at 1:45 pm

i became a fan of strawsome and left a comment! i want some of those!!!

10 Debbie Gorlewski February 4, 2010 at 1:47 pm

I only have one child and he is just figuring out, and loving, straws! I'd say we go through 10 a week.

I have to use straws because I have receeding gums and if I don't it could make them worse because of the product you drink sticks to the part of your tooth that has receeded and makes it worse so I use MANY straws. I would love a glass straw that I can reuse!! :)

17 Michele February 4, 2010 at 2:00 pm

2-3 straws - more if the nephews visit :-)

18 Michele February 4, 2010 at 2:01 pm

I would say around 20 which doesn't make me happy but I've never heard of an alternitive like glass straws!

31 Kimber February 4, 2010 at 2:57 pm

My toddler LOVES straws. My frugal self will only give her a few a week. :o) But she would gladly use them every day! She thinks she's getting a special treat when she gets to use a straw.

32 Carrie February 4, 2010 at 3:10 pm

None right now, but a glass straw looks fun!

33 cagla February 4, 2010 at 3:28 pm

I go thru at least 4 straws a day. I have two kids!

I try and re-use the plastic straws and cups from restaurants that come with kids meals....and the straws get pretty chewed up fast! I'd say we only use 4 straws a week that we throw away. I think those glass straws are amazing! Never heard of them before today!

38 Tracy February 4, 2010 at 4:28 pm

Ohh wow, im embarassed to say I use 5 straws a week. This sounds like an interesting product. Thanks for the chance.

39 Marquisha February 4, 2010 at 4:47 pm

I use 2 to 3 straws a week, because I keep the same insulated cup and rewash it, and my straw every time I get a new drink...I like to think I'm doing my part of being green!

I use about 4 straws a week - with smoothies only!

42 Rachel A February 4, 2010 at 5:03 pm

I have to say I use a lot of straws... I even use one for my iced coffee every mourning. I would guess about 20 plus!

43 Bethany February 4, 2010 at 5:09 pm

Oooh! My children love straws, and these would be perfect for a summertime lemonade in a pretty glass!!!

44 Bethany February 4, 2010 at 5:10 pm

45 Win Q February 4, 2010 at 5:12 pm

I use at least 10 straws per week.

46 Holly Musgrove February 4, 2010 at 5:12 pm

I try not to use any straws because I hate to waste plastic. If I get one in the drive-thru I might use it or I might save it for a friend who likes to make mixed drinks and always provides her friends with straws. Having a glass straw would be great! Bye, bye overconsumption of plastic, and hello to awesomeness!

47 Aleigh February 4, 2010 at 5:13 pm

7 straws

We use about 7 straws a week because my son loves to drink his yogurt smoothies through a straw.
