1 EcoStraw can eliminate 584 plastic straws per year. 1.6 plastic straws per day X 365 days Equals 584 Straws per person per year!! SUSTAINABLE SOLUTION: So… Americans use 500 Million Straws per day. Where do you think they end up? Apart from our landfills they end up in our rivers, streams, and oceans where they have a seriously negative impact on our marine habitat’s and our wildlife.

This is your opportunity to do something good for the environment while treating yourself to one of life’s simple pleasures at the same time. MADE IN THE USA: Our glass straws are hand-made by your fellow Americans. Each straw is cut, flame-polished and annealed in a kiln for maximum strength. We are committed to remaining an “American Made” company, keeping our business rooted here in the US strengthens our community, and ensures an easier time of quality control, and allows us to closely monitor our ecological footprint.
