WIRES Wildlife Rescue (New South Wales Wildlife Information Rescue and Education Service) is the largest wildlife rescue & rehabilitation charity in Australia. It is a non-profit organization providing rescue and rehabilitation for all native Australian fauna. All animal rescuers and carers are volunteers!
We have created “The Aussie” Straw and Bottle Collection, etched with this adorable koala and kangaroo, to be the symbol of how we can help Australia. You can now find “The Aussie” collection in our online store and for this special collection 20% straight from each sale will go directly to WIRES to help rescue and save the animal population still holding on.
Our world has lost so much. Australia alone has lost so much and we can do a two fold effort to help protect and save them! By purchasing these reusable glass straws and bottles you are cutting down on the 300,000,000 straws and the 1,440,000,000 plastic bottles used every single day in the US alone, not to mention the rest of the world and only a very small fraction of those bottles are recycled.
You are also helping save and rehabilitate the Australian wildlife by donating straight to WIRES.
Picking the size straw for you…
- 7in (Shorty): Great for kids cups and shorter glasses.
- 8in (Regular): Typical straw size for most restaurants.
- 9in (Tall): Great for larger cups, insulated tumblers, and mason jars.
These straws are 8-9mm in width and are great for typical, thin liquids, slightly slushy, and creamy drinks.

TIP => The length of your straw should be 1.5 – 2 inches taller than the lip of your cup for comfortable drinking.
