How fish guts and a plastic straw inspired our social business

 

      
We should have been eating grilled fish dinner the day my husband pulled a plastic straw from a fish’s stomach…
Needless to say that ruined our appetite.  On that day we vowed to make a change.  It was the last straw (pun clearly intended!).

 

Plastic straws suck and they’re such a waste!

Unlike the production processes of metal, glass and paper straws ours are 100% hand-made and chemical-free.  Zero electricity.  Zero emissions.  In fact, bamboo produces 35% more oxygen than trees so our production processes actually help to repair the environment. 

 

50% of profits go towards environmental education programs and women's empowerment.
