FinalStraw's mission is to reduce plastic straw use by giving people a convenient, collapsible, reusable alternative. In doing so, we hope to make the public more aware of the devastating effects of plastic pollution and use that awareness to pressure restaurants to stop serving straws.
Problem With Plastic
1.6 Straws per Person per Day! Americans use enough to wrap around the Earth 2.5 times every day! Because they're so lightweight, straws blow into waterways, where they head out to sea and harm wildlife. Plastic straws can't be recycled. They don't decompose, and they pollute our land and our oceans.
