24 Sensational Straws

From Meat-Made Drinking Tubes to Superb Sipping Sculptures

— April 29, 2012 — Eco
Sensational straws are needed, as traditional drinking becomes boring after about five seconds. With sippers made out of meat and high-tech metallic designs, why settle for anything less than ordinary when consuming your favorite beverage?

Picture yourself sitting on a patio, sipping caesars without a care in the world. Now imagine doing the exact same thing with a straw made completely out of celery! With inventions like that, you don't need to worry about poking your eye out with a massive vegetable, and instead enjoy your surroundings and cool drink in hand.

If that doesn't do it, try a metallic beverage-sipper. This metal design will hold up even during a full-on invasion, so you don't have to worry about pesky holes ruining your sipping powers.
