In launching Steel Straw on Earth Day 2018, we set out on a mission to create a company in the green economy that contributes to a larger coalition of environmental champions. We are convinced that in order to succeed as a company, and in ending plastic pollution, we must join together.
We are but one thread amidst a tapestry of activists, innovators, and entrepreneurs who believe that we can and must shift away from a single use economy and towards a reusable and renewable one.
Everyday communities are negatively affected by petrochemical factories producing plastics. From Flint to Standing Rock, from the BP Oil Spill to New Orleans’ “Cancer Alley. This pollution poisons the air we breathe, the water we drink, and the food we eat.
With stakes this high, we take our commitment very seriously. We believe that reusable drinking straws not only help eliminate plastic pollution, but also empower people to take a “first step” in elevating our cultural consciousness away from plastic.
Thank you for being a part of our extended family, we look forward to continuing the conversation.
