This is Day 291 of the Green in 365 series!
I mean, how could I not share this picture with you? Look at that sweet babe rockin’ the baby curl mohawk and sippin’ on a delicious green smoothie?
It’s not really life-changing or anything, but I recently ordered some stainless steel reusable straws from Mighty Nest and I totally love them. It actually makes me really happy to use them. I’m weird like that!
I used to wash and reuse plastic straws, but they’d eventually have to be thrown away because the kids would bite them, or they’d get a hole in them, or they’d just get gross on the inside.
These stainless steel straws are perfect for my kiddos, and I don’t have to worry about them breaking the way I might with glass straws. And they are super easy to wash and keep clean, I rinse them out right away and then stick them in the silverware tray in my dishwasher. And if I feel like they need a little extra cleaning on the inside, I just use a pipe cleaner from our craft supplies. Brilliant, I know!
I love that these reusable straws are just one small way that our family can reduce our waste!
Here are some more buying options for reusable straws.
What’s one small change your family has made that is so simple but makes you so happy?
