FOUNDING OF STRAW TO STRAW
Inspired by the plastic free straw movement, our mission was to find a non-plastic straw that fulfilled the 100% biodegradable and compostable criteria.
Completely cancelling out the use of straws was not a viable solution, as straws were a necessity to some individuals and sectors of the industry.
Paper straws were a great alternative to plastic straws, however, there was dissatisfaction over the soggy aftermath. Plus, we didn't want to contribute to the deforestation factor, so we needed a sustainable alternative.
We did some digging around for natural and viable alternative for straws, and found out that the alternative was as simple as it sounds. Straws made from wheat straws, just like in the olden days! And that was how STRAW TO STRAW was founded.
After our straws, we stumbled upon another issue, our flimsy pegs. Off we went to find another solution that could withstand the harsh weather, yet survive. The solution: Stainless Steel Pegs!
From there onwards, our vision and mission was formed. To resolve the plastic problem for a better life, one step at a time.
Our mission is to source for the best version of each product, while not costing the earth. Hence, our products will always tick the boxes of sustainable and eco-friendly.
Being eco-friendly and plastic free does not have to mean sacrificing convenience and suitability.
Our goal is to transform Australia into a plastic free country, starting with single plastic usage. Having seen other countries like America, France and Asia whereby single plastic usage has seen a dramatic decrease, we believe that Australia can go down that same path as well.
By switching to the eco-friendly lifestyle, we will not only be saving the environment, but also providing a greener tomorrow for the next generation.
Let's not take the future for granted.
