...I STARTED LOOKING FOR SOLUTIONS
Metal straws seemed like the natural first choice but I like to know whats inside my bottles and straws, and I have an irrational fear of rust so I generally opt out of metal life.
I kept looking for an answer. I had been touring many years by now and I knew the problem was massive.
Never had I ever felt this passionate about any other cause before. I knew this was a BIG problem and I was committed to helping solve it.
Two days later, as if the universe heard my call, I met Rewi from Sea Savers. He was making glass straws - a concept I was unfamiliar with, and not just any old glass straws-No he makes pyrex works of art!
We spoke at length about fears, possibility, and he answered all of my questions.
Do they break easily?
No. They are made from the same glass as your favorite baking dishes. So they are TOUGH.
Are they difficult to keep clean?
No. They each come with their own little straw cleaning brush and at the molecular level the density is so thick there is literally NO ROOM for bacteria to live.
In a world where society is beginning to ban the use of straws all together, is there even a point to dive into something like this?
Absolutely! There will always be someone who wants to #sipinstyle
I knew I had found the solution for me. A straw I would be happy to use and share. I quickly got to work designing my own line of favorites and off we went!
Sea Savers had its first baby line and Honeysuckaz was born. It didn't take long for us to realize that we wanted to collaborate and co-brand. Sea Saver Straws and Honeysuckaz joined forces to become SeaSavers.Co and now we are powered to fulfill our mission of bringing sexy solutions to the reusable revolution.
