The Power of the Straw


The power of the straw

Drinking through a straw is the simple solution to preventing stains

Drinking through a straw allows your drink to bypass your front teeth and avoid staining.  We'd love to take the credit for this idea, but we can't - it's been around for a long time, even though it is not widely known.
The source of this little trick are people who know a thing or two about teeth and hygiene: Dentists
Next time you head in for a cleaning, ask your dentist what he or she thinks about straws & stains.  Our bet is they will confirm this advice for you.

 

Cool.  So now you might be wondering where you can find a straw for coffee and hot drinks.  And why shouldn't you just use a plastic straw?  You certainly can.  Just be aware of the risks and downsides of plastic straws.

They are a health and an environmental risk

Have you ever noticed that straws often have a warning printed on their wrappers saying "Not for use with hot beverages"?  What the heck!?  
The reason is because plastic is not stable under high temperatures and can leach toxins into your drink. 
To make matters worse, the National Park Service estimates that Americans use 500 million plastic straws per day.  That's enough to fill up nearly 50,000 school buses per year!

The Koffie Straw will keep your teeth sparkling white

Our Koffie Straws are made from 100% FDA approved silicone.  They are safe under high temperatures and will give you comfort knowing that you are drinking your coffee, tea, or hot chocolate the safest way possible.
Koffie Straws are fully reusable and dishwasher friendly.  Now you can reduce your plastic footprint and cut our planet a break.

 

 

Oval shape fits your To-Go cup

This straw is a coffee lover's dream

The Koffie Straw's patent-pending oval shape design allows it to fit easily into any To-Go coffee cup.  Of course you can also use it at home in your coffee mug.
We crafted our silicone to be firm enough to handle the heat from a hot beverage, yet soft enough to be gentle on your teeth.  You can bite as much as you want on the straw to control the flow of how fast (or slow) you drink up.
At 7" long, they will fit any small or medium sized To-Go cups.  They will generally fit up to 16oz cups.
