The Problem with Plastic

Did you know that Americans use over 500 million plastic straws every day?  Or that because they are so lightweight they often blow into waterways and end up harming wildlife in our oceans?  Plastics can’t be recycled and don’t decompose, leading to long-term pollution on our land and in our oceans (FinalStaw).

Growing public concern and a collective desire to reduce single-use plastics is gaining some serious traction in the US, and is a trend that shows no signs of slowing down.  Because of this movement, reusable straws are hugely popular and make for an awesome branded giveaway.  FinalStraw, a popular reusable straw brand, got it’s start after raising $1.8 million on Kickstarter, and recently made their product available for branding in our industry!  The fact that this straw began as a crowdfunded project shows that people are really passionate about the cause and want to do their part in the movement.
