Wheat - Straws & The Ocean Cleanup

Join us and our community and help with this global problem, start banning plastic and start saving oceans. Start using Wheat - Straws and contribute yourself!🐬🐢
Due to my passion for scuba diving and the enormous plastic soup what I have seen all around the globe, I have been looking for biodegradable but affordable alternatives for plastic straws but could not find it. That's why I want to create a place with affordable straws and share this with you.

By utilizing the ocean currents to their advantage, their passive drifting systems are estimated to clean up half the Great Pacific Garbage Patch in 5 years time.

A SIMPLE IDEA TURNED INTO A MOONSHOT PROJECT

The Ocean Cleanup is designing and developing the first feasible method to rid the world’s oceans of plastic. Every year, millions of tons of plastic enter the ocean. A significant percentage of this plastic drifts into large systems of circulating ocean currents, also known as gyres. Once trapped in a gyre, the plastic will break down into microplastics and become increasingly easier to mistake for food by sea life.

Going after it with vessels and nets would be costly, time-consuming, labor-intensive and lead to vast amounts of carbon emission and by-catch.That is why The Ocean Cleanup is developing a passive system, moving with the currents – just like the plastic – to catch it. The floater provides buoyancy to the entire system, while the skirt prevents debris from escaping underneath and leads it into the retention system (“cod end”). A cork line above the skirt prevents overtopping and keeps the skirt afloat. As the system moves through the water, slower than the plastic, the plastic collects within the boundaries of the U-shaped system.

YOUR WHEAT - STRAW CAN MAKE A CHANGE

The Ocean Cleanup keeps cleaning the oceans, we keep the oceans clean by  banning plastic. Preventing them from doing unnecessary work. They help us with cleaning the oceans, therefore, we need to help them at the mainland. Say NO to plastic and say 'HAY' to WHEAT. 

WHEAT - STRAWS donates 2% of all the purchases to The Ocean Cleanup through our Facebook page. Help us and our little globe. Follow us and our journey on Facebook @wheatandstraws🌿
