Is Silicone a Recyclable Material? Yes! Silicone is recyclable in many specialty recycling facilities but being very durable, you will not need to dispose of it for a very long time.
“I have an autistic son that chews on everything. He only wants to drink from a straw, I could not buy stainless steel straws knowing that he could hurt himself. A friend recommended glugglug straws and they work perfectly.
I recommend the standard size orange a purple glugglug straws, they very flexible, their walls are much thicker than other Brands silicone straws on the market, they can be chewed and are very easy to clean without using any plastic squeegee.
I recommend them 100%, especially for special needs kids.”
