Contemplating straw options? 

Switching to glass straws is a simple, low-cost way to upgrade your establishment, showcase your cocktails, elevate your events, reduce waste, get publicity, boost sales, impress your customers, and gain respect in your community.

Glass straws add value to craft cocktails, and add luxury to every soda, coffee drink, juice, smoothie, or glass of water.

In addition to being beautiful and reusable, glass straws are a practical choice for restaurants, bars, cafes, hotels, and events for a variety of reasons.

In particular, ToMA glass straws are:

🗹 Durable - Made from high-quality, laboratory-grade borosilicate, our straws are much stronger than stemware. Watch this  fun 20-second drumming(!) video showing just how strong they are.

🗹 Dishwasher-safe - Just pop them into the dishwasher with your flatware and glassware. 

🗹 Visibly clean - Unlike metal or other opaque straw options, glass straws are clear! It's easy to see that they're sparkling clean inside and out. (No hidden residue.)

🗹 Affordable - At around a dollar or so per straw, and with an estimated minimum of 30 uses each, glass straws are a surprisingly economical option. 

🗹 Compact - You'll free up space that is currently filled with boxes of straws.
🗹 Eco-friendly - Reduce the waste of single-use straws and win points with your customers and community. (Our co-founder's restaurants have earned several Green Business Leader awards based on changes including switching to glass.)

🗹 Dentist-recommended - Glass is a natural insulator, meaning it eliminates the discomfort of tooth sensitivity while sipping hot or iced beverages.

🗹 Customer-friendly -  Make it easy to drink tall or fully-garnished cocktails! Offer your guests a beautiful, sparkling-clean glass straw they'll love, and they'll be sure to tell others about it.  

🗹 Newsworthy - Glass straws for businesses and events are new and newsworthy. Your restaurant, bar, hotel, cafe, or event venue can get positive publicity for choosing reusable glass straws. Leverage that in your social media, and let your customers know you take plastic straw bans seriously.

🗹 A powerful marketing tool - Whether you use glass straws to showcase your premium cocktails, get likes on your social media posts, serve as memorable (and branded) gifts for your event attendees, or as a vehicle to raise money for a favorite cause, they're a great way to inspire customer loyalty and boost your bottom line.

If you're looking for a way to show your guests that you care about both the environment and their experience, going with glass straws is the smart and elegant solution.


"Going with glass straws is the easiest way to add WOW to your business. It's a simple, inexpensive switch that will make you a hero to your customers and your community."
