Why we started and the goals that we want to achieve?
Due to our passion for scuba diving we started to realize more and more what an enormous plastic soup we humans are causing. To contribute to a cleaner environment, Bas started to look for a sustainable, biodegradable and affordable alternative for plastic straws in August 2019. On his search for an alternative we finally ended up at wheat straws; a strong natural and biodegradable product. After all the drinking pleasure, our straws are just a nutrient for our soil. That’s how we will make the difference at land and keep our oceans clean. Still at the same time you are able to drink your cocktail or lemonade with an eco-straw. Cool, isn’t it?
We are giving the environment a bit extra space back in return by donating 2% of every purchase to The Ocean Cleanup. They can make the difference at sea and we at the mainland. Win-win, isn’t it?
