First Straw Designed to Make Drinking Coffee Safe for HOT drinks.

What is Hot Straw?
Hot Straw is the only straw that is safe for hot liquids. We made it of a sturdier BPA Free, FDA Approved plastic that can sustain the heat of a cup of coffee or tea preventing potentially harmful chemicals from leaching into the beverage.  Hot Straw’s shape fits perfectly into the opening of a coffee cup lid, making it a spill stopper that you can drink from and it is sustainable, reusable and dishwasher safe. 

The unique shaped dual-hole designed allows you to sip hot liquids safely. It helps protect your teeth from coffee/tea stains and women love it because it keeps your lipstick on your lips not all over the lid of the cup. The inspiration for Hot Straw came from helping Parkinson’s patients and people on the go enjoy a healthy & spill free morning coffee. 5% of all profits are donated back to Parkinson's Reaserch!

UPDATE!!!: Hot Straw just won an award for one of the best new products at Coffee Fest 2012! Please join us in our journey to get this amazing straw into coffee shops, rehab centers, hospitals and retail chains around the world!

What's so cool and unique about it?

Good question. Here is why we think Hot Straw is so special:

  • It is the Only Straw on the market that is Safe for Hot Liquids. Hot Straw was designed with a sturdier plastic that will not melt and leech chemicals into your drink like other drinking straws. It is BPA free made from FDA approved plastic!
  • It's truly Reusable. We engineered it to last for thousands of uses. It made of a sturdy plastic that is dishwasher safe and kid-indestructible :)!
  • It is Dentist Recommended. "Your teeth will thank you!" By bypassing coffee and tea from hitting the front of your teeth, your teeth will stay whiter and healthier longer.
  • Helps prevent spills. It fits perfect into the hole of most to-go coffee cup lids, so you can focus on your day and not on trying to not spill your coffee all over your car console or your shirt. The Internet is full of 1st and 2nd degree burn pictures from hot coffee spilled on chest, stomach and thighs. Second degree burns are nasty and can easily get infected
  • It's sustainable. To us, sustainable means a responsibly produced product that actually reduces the carbon foot print produced from manufacturing and disposing of thousands of disposable straws every single day. Hot Straw will last you for thousands of uses and we make Hot Straws with a recyclable material. We are committed to being eco-friendly!
  • Proudly Made in the USA!

How did you come up with such a great idea?

After being disgusted when I found out about the toxins that I was putting into my body by using a normal disposable straw and coming up empty on my search for a straw that my Parkinson's patients could use to prevent spills, I decided to create my own and the idea for Hot Straw was born.

When and how will you ship my cool stuff?

We will ship via USPS first class in the end of November. We will get product to you well before Christmas, so don't worry if you are ordering for gifts. We will send you an email before we ship to ask what color and size you would like. 

What if I am interested in Wholesale orders other than the perks listed?

What happens if the Hot Straw project is over-funded?

If we get more than our goal, we will put the extra funding toward producing some new colors or do a donation to a local hospital or rehab center. Don't worry, we will keep you informed!
