I had an idea to change it. Now I wish to inspire everyone.
Even a small straw can do a big step toward stop using plastics.
Really everybody manage to change plastic straws for We-Straw, even you!
We-Straw stays with you!
How did it happen?
In July 2018, I was in my favorite place where I ordered a coffee and lemonade. Surprisingly I did not get any straw to my lemonade. As you can imagine drinking from a glass that is full of ice is pretty annoying. I did not hesitate and went out to ask the bar-stuff where was the straw. There was a stright answer from a young waitress: "The plastic straw is killing turtles and animals in the oceans. I will not give it to you."
I was baffled for the first time, but instead of searching for arguments, I began to think about how to put it right.
In a short time I found a solution ... Well, the straw is called the straw because of the rye straw ... It is a very simple deduction indeed, however, it has led to the fact that I began to survey, test and gradually prepare everything to be able to deliver straws from rye straw to everyone who wants to change drinking for once and for all.
Eliminating the already unwanted plastics and supporting the natural product motivates me to inspire others. Little by little, I began to figure out that all the other alternatives of disposable straws like paper, PLA or pasta have one identical problem, it is not ecological as it looks like.
We-Straw is only manufactured from the already grown rye, which is primarily intended for the production of flour. Secondary waste, which is stems, can be used as a straw, so you can have a clean conscience and a good feeling that you do not contribute to the devastation of our planet.
My another thought was how to help to clean the plastic disaster in the oceans and help the turtles together? There came next super idea ... What about financially supports someone who really helps?
"Protecting sea turtles" is a great program to save sea turtles and clean the ocean and beaches. It immediately fell into my eye!
Try to ask for a We-straw in your place or business!
Now we have a team with other 4 people.
Say No to Plastic.
