Plastic straws are a huge topic of conversation right now (and for good reason!). According to National Geographic, the U.S. goes through 500 million in just one day with billions ending up in our oceans and on shorelines.

The solution? Reusable straws. I tested the latest crop and picked my favorites based on how easy they are to clean and transport, whether they fit into a standard 32-ounce water bottle and their mouthfeel (I know, sounds gross, but it's very important). Here are the seven BPA-free options that stood out to me.

BUY IT: Bed Bath & Beyond, $7.99

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?

BUY IT: Amazon, $12.88

Each Buluh set comes with eight bamboo straws of varying thickness, a cleaning brush and a handy cotton bag. The only 100% natural pick in our roundup, they have no inks or dyes and are biodegradable, sustainable and organically grown. The straws do soften after a few hours in a water bottle, so I'd recommend using them for shorter periods of 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. Dishwasher-safe, the stainless-steel straws come with a 100-year warranty, which means you're set for life.

From Amazon

BUY IT: Amazon, $28.71

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.
