One Straw At A Time

Taking Care Of Our Planet

Every week, Americans throw away over three billion plastic straws. They are filling our landfills and making their way into our oceans. We are here to change that, as one of many companies making strides towards reducing plastic waste. 

Each Strawai'i can be used to eliminate over 500 of these plastic straws.

Spotlight Organization of the Month

Mālama Loko Ea Foundation


Every month we pair a design with a conservation organization. For the month of September, with every Shark straw sold on our page, we will be donating $1 to Mālama Loko Ea Foundation. 

Mālama Loko Ea is an organization that provides an educational platform where students and community members learn and practice land stewardship, nohona Hawaiʻi (living and practicing Hawaiian culture as a way of life), and ʻike kuʻuna (knowledge of traditional Hawaiian practices). With the kuleana to mālama a rich cultural and natural resource, Mālama Loko Ea Foundation works to revive Loko Ea to once again become an abundant and thriving fishpond. Their mission is to perpetuate the Native Hawaiian culture through education, land stewardship, and community building, while sustainably restoring our precious natural resources with their vision of Malama Loko Ea connecting the present to the past. Some of their community opportunities are their after-school school programs, internships, and community workdays.

If you would like to get involved, you can volunteer, become a member, or donate to their ʻAmapō Ea - A Fundraising Initiative Moving Loko Iʻa Forward Together. Please visit their website: https://www.lokoea.org/donate.html

Spotlight Farm of the Month

ORCD

Every month we pair a design with a local farm. For the month of September, with every Pineapple straw sold on our page, we will be donating $1 to ORCD.

O‘ahu Resource Conservation and Development Council (ORCD) is an independent, 501(c)(3) non-profit entity that has been serving Hawai‘i’s rural communities, farms, and ranches since 1997 to improve stewardship of natural resources (such as soil and water). Their programs focus on the social, economic, and environmental connection of sustainable agriculture, local food production and water restoration. They have a boots-on-the-ground approach to support farmers (technically and financially) to improve their management and their sustainable production of local food, while protecting natural resources by the implementation of conservation practices that build soil health and restore watershed health. ORCD focuses on building community through the creation of farmer-to-farmer networks and increasing understanding and engagement among the general public on the diversity and importance of local agriculture. Some of their current projects are Carbon Farming Healthy Soils Hawai’i, Parade of Farms, and Women Farmers.
