"After 10 years in the Food & Beverage industry, I grew tired of dumping plastic straws into a plastic bag that I knew would end up underground forever. After months of research and selling everything I owned, The Blue Straw was born. Straws are just the beginning, I am dedicated to finding sustainable solutions to every single-use plastic item still lingering in our oceans, landfills, and beaches. With your support, we can be the generation that changes the world, one drink at a time."

"I was borne into a family of avid backpackers, who fostered in me a love for the outdoors and a passion for its preservation. Majoring in materials engineering, I've made it my mission to find sustainable alternatives single-use plastics.  Small changes to the way we live compound and make a big difference."
