About Us

Earth Friendly Straws is a mission driven socially conscious company working to create a positive impact on the world. We believe in something more than just the "profit above all else" ethos of traditional business. Our belief is that the true power of a company and its ultimate measure of success can be found not in maximizing its profit margins or returns to investors, but rather in its ability to drive social change, contribute to an environmentally sustainable world and it's support of like minded businesses and nonprofit organizations. These are the ideals we have built our company around. At our core, we exist to make the world a better place through our business and our brand. We are happy to have you learn more about us and appreciate your interest in supporting our cause.

Our Mission:

  • Create Awareness of the damage single-use plastics are causing our planet, its oceans and the animals that call them home.
  • Enable Change by providing quality green products that are earth friendly, reusable, and help people stop using plastic straws.
  • Be Philanthropic by donating a portion of sales to help fund a variety of organizations that are working to spread awareness of the issue as well as clean and conserve our precious environment for future generations.
  • Generate a sustainable profit that allows our business to continue to grow and expand in support of our goals.

This is what Earth Friendly Straws is all about! Every purchase does the following:

  • Helps eliminate the use of disposable plastic straws.
  • Allows us to donate a portion of sales to worthy nonprofit organizations that support our goals. We are a proud member of onepercentfortheplanet.org!
  • Contributes to virally spreading the word about the damage being done and how we can all help be part of a better, cleaner future.
  • Oh, and it allows us to sleep well at night knowing we did some good in the world. That's what it’s all about in the end right?

Do you share our goals and beliefs? Help us help others and the planet by either purchasing a set of reusable straws for your personal use or buying some to give as gifts to your friends, family and local organizations. Even if you choose to purchase from another vendor (read our FAQ about how we are different), please share us on your social media account to help spread the word of how we are trying to help make the world better.
