Plastic straws are a huge topic of conversation (and for good reason!). Making the switch to reusable straws is a small step that many of us have the ability to make in order to cut down on our individual plastic usage. If you aren't convinced that carrying around a reusable straw is for you, we've rounded up a couple options that prove it's easier than you think.

This metal straw is retractable, so you can adjust the length depending on the size of your drinking vessel (and shorten it when you want to seal the lid). It also has a silicon tip, which is great for all the "chewers" out there. The kit itself is very small and inconspicuous to carry around. And thanks to the brush provided, you can make sure your straw is always squeaky clean.

For those who prefer a sleek metal look, these stainless-steel straws are great. Like many reusable options, they come with a small brush for quick cleaning. You can even put them in the freezer before use to enjoy your drinks extra cold.

These thin, silicone straws are designed for coffee drinkers who don't want to stain their teeth. They have a unique oval opening and are angled so the liquid enters past your pearly whites. Dishwasher safe, these straws are easy to bend, so you can make them as compact as you like. Did we mention they're biodegradable?

Each set of 12 bamboo straws comes with a cleaning brush and a handy storage bag. These are 100% organic and are reusable, meaning you can carry them around with you to use at any time.

If you have multiple straw users in your household, you can now keep track of each person's straw thanks to the multicolor silicone tips that come with this kit. Plus, the stainless-steel straws are dishwasher-safe for easy clean-up.

These glass straws, complete with a cleaning brush and protective sleeve, are proof that you never have to skimp on style. I guarantee you'll be getting some compliments when you whip this baby out at brunch.
