What our customers are saying…

The Only Straw five star reviews

“We have loved every minute of working with The Only Straw, their straws are incredibly durable, functional and so beautiful! From the different array of colours, to the different sizes and their minimal footprint on the planet, we are so grateful to have come across this eco-friendly business. Glenn has made ordering and the entire process so simple and his customer service has been so wonderful. We’re over the moon to have The Only Straw as a part of our business.”

TZARA | The Green Canopy

“We eagerly awaited the release of the only straw and when our package arrived it certainly didn’t disappoint!! The straws are a very high quality and come in a range of vibrant colours. They are a great talking point among our customers and I believe adding a quality straw to our beverages will entice customers shop with us over receiving a soggy straw elsewhere. In knowing we can provide all this and also be stopping plastics ending up in our environment is a no brainer. Glenn has been a true gentleman in all of our communications and we look forward to many future dealings with the only straw.”

BEN GOLCHERT | HiTide swim school

“The Only Straw is a great solution for an environmentally friendly straw option and all our customers have reported that they are happy with the straws. It lasts a lot longer in drinks compared to paper straws and I love that there are different sizes and colours available. Glenn is very responsive and the entire order to delivery process is simple and quick.”
