Enviro Glass Straw emerged from our concern for the environment and our desire to teach our children to tread gently on the Earth.
Enviro Glass Straw is a family run business on Vancouver Island, B.C. Our concern for the future of our planet and the overuse of one time plastic straw lead glass blower, Tyler Hayes (Mystic Glass Creations) to making glass straws for his children, Autumn and Morgan. Friends and family loved the plastic free glass straws that Tyler was manufacturing in his home studio and Enviro Glass Straw was born.
We are proud that all of our straws are handmade on Vancouver Island, B.C. Our mission is to help reduce waste by providing a beautiful, toxic free and reusable product. We hope that our children will learn by example and love our Earth just as much as we do!
Tyler Hayes began his glass blowing career when starting Mystic Glass Creations in 2003 with business partner and friend, Kim Reid. In 2012, his wife asked him to make some glass straws for a friend. With numerous requests from friends and family, Tyler began making more glass straws and Enviro Glass Straw Ltd. became a reality!
Tyler enjoys the environmental contribution he is able to make and believes we can each make a difference through small changes to our everyday lives.
We are happy to announce that our studio gallery is open. This gives customers the opportunity to see how glass is created and formed into all sorts of sculptural and one of a kind art pieces. If you happen to visit Vancouver Island, we’d love to see you! Some of Tyler's other work can be viewed at www.mysticglasscreations.com
