-- SEATTLE, WA — May 11, 2012 — As of last Tuesday Hot Straw has launched at Solsticio Café in Fremont, the first café to sell Hot Straws. Because Hot Straw was originally created to help Parkinson’s patients, 5% of all proceeds will go to Parkinson's research.
Hot Straw is the first straw designed specifically for use in hot liquids. The key difference is in its ability to withstand the temperature of a hot beverage and not allow plastic to melt into the drink.
Hot Straw is BPA free, recyclable, and dishwasher safe.
Another noticeably clever aspect to the design is the oval shape that matches the opening in a to-go coffee lid, meaning the straw doubles as a spill stopper that you can still sip from.
“As a Clinical Researcher, it killed me to know my Parkinson’s patients couldn’t enjoy the coffee they have had their entire life. It’s my job to make their lives more comfortable and they wanted a hot drink, so I found a way to make it happen.” Said Dawn Miracle, CEO and inventor of the Hot Straw.
Dawn hopes that her invention not only helps most people enjoy a morning cup of coffee without spilling or staining their teeth, but that it makes the quality of life for Parkinson’s patients a little more enjoyable each morning.
