Block Party Giveaway: Strawesome

This giveaway is now closed. Thanks to all who participated! Check back on July 4 for the winner!
Welcome to the Simple Living Media Summer Block Party! We’ve got 20 giveaways across the entire network this week to give you plenty of chances to win.

There’s something new in my kitchen that I find myself reaching for several times a day….introducing our next great giveaway from Strawesome!

A few weeks ago, if you had told me I needed a reusable drinking straw -or six-, I might have told you to go fly a kite, but thanks to a Starter Set of glass straws from Strawesome, I can honestly say I am converted for life!

A Glass Straw? Isn’t that, like, dangerous?

I know, I said the same thing, but that was before I knew that these straws are made of borosilicate glass tubing (think Pyrex) and have a lifetime guarantee against breakage. I know!

You can toss these straws right into the dishwasher.

Strawesome also offers a 100% satisfaction guarantee, so if you don’t love your straws, you can send them back. Believe me, though, these will be the coolest addition to your kitchen this year. I love showing mine off to friends and showing off their many virtues.

But why a reuseable straw and not a generic jumbo pack?

These days, concern about plastic usage is at a fever-pitch. Glass drinking straws are one way to limit your exposure to toxins. Plus, think of all the plastic straws getting tossed every summer (*ducks head in shame*).

Replacing ordinary plastic straws with a few reusable glass straws from Strawesome keeps all that plastic out of landfills – and makes me feel much better about our serious smoothie habit!

Have I mentioned that they are pretty?

Choose from a vast variety of colored or decorated straws to dress up your iced tea this summer. You can even personalize Strawesome for a very cool, modern and functional gift idea.

Hmm, I’m thinking Christmas stocking ideas, you?

Strawesome’s description of prize package

Our prize package includes what we like to refer to as the “Starter Set” which we think is a great combination for the average straw user.

It includes one of each –

  • 8” regular,
  • 8” smoothie
  • 6” regular
  • 6” smoothie straw

plus a handy cleaning brush.

Our 8” straws are the size of the average straw you might find in a restaurant or use in a average sized glass. Our 6” straws are great for use in a smaller juice glass or children’s cup. The smoothie straws are unique because plastic smoothie straws aren’t very easy to come by in retail locations. Our customers who regularly drink thicker beverages really get pleasure out of having a smoothie sized glass straw (i.e., no smoothie mustaches).

We’re also including one

  • 8” regular decorative straw

Our decorative straws add a bit of artsy flair to an average drink, some even believe water tastes better with a beautiful glass straw!

Strawesome is giving away a total of FOUR prize packages, so I will be picking FOUR winners for this giveaway. Good luck!
