"Use Steel Straws, end plastic pollution."
California-based social impact company hyper-focused on eliminating plastic pollution.
Steel Straw was founded on Earth Day 2018, after founders, Julia and Max were frustrated with the constant barrage of single-use plastics in their daily life. As our deep concern for the plastic pollution crisis grew, so did our conviction to do something about it.
Together there was an opportunity to get a reusable straw into the hands of people who want to "be the change". We see this focus as a powerful first step in directly mitigating the issue, and bringing more awareness to people's consumption habits.
Plastics pollution is an environmental justice issue. We know that pollution in water supplies -- from Standing Rock to the BP Oil Spill, to New Orleans’ “Cancer Alley” -- directly impacts low-income communities and communities of color the hardest. We must work to create opportunities for everyone, while recognizing that there is no such thing as garbage -- just resources out of place.
