Given the huge consumption of straws every day, it was time to find a solution to all those single use straws. This is how our Sipizy straws are made:
But where will the money go?
As we are selling our straws in both US and Australia, we wanted to contribute to at least one local non-profit partner in each country. This is why we have chosen:
An American non-profit organisation whom mission is to empower action against the global health crisis of plastic pollution through science, education and adventure. They have published in over 25 peer-reviewed scientific journals, papers, and studies and, have travelled over 50,000 nautical miles in search of plastic on 19 research expeditions.
An Australian non-profit organisation that works directly with schools, surf clubs, businesses, individuals and governments to propose waste-reduction programs and campaigns that increase public awareness and action on reducing plastic pollution and waste.
The ocean cleanup & Seabin Project
Unfortunately, with 50 million straws ending in the ocean every single day, we felt the need to invest in innovative company like Seabin Project and to donate to the NGO, The ocean cleanup, that are developing technologies to extract, prevent, and intercept plastic pollutions.
