Spotlight Organization of the Month

Papahānaumokuākea Marine Debris Project (PMDP)

Every month we pair a design with an organization we stand by. For the month of June, with every Honu straw sold, we will be donating $1 to the Papahānaumokuākea Marine Debris Project (PMDP).

Marine debris and plastic pollution. An estimated 115,000 pounds of derelict fishing nets are found in the coral reefs of Papahānaumokuākea every year. It is common to find seabirds ingesting plastic debris, endangered Hawaiian monk seals and threatened green sea turtles entangled in derelict fishing nets. Papahānaumokuākea Marine Debris Project (PMDP) protects the wildlife and critical habitats of the Papahānaumokuākea Marine National Monument (PMNM) that encompasses 583,000 square miles of deep ocean and uninhabited islands. Through their amazing work, they have 431 metric tons of derelict nets, saved 87 Hawaiian monk seals (only 1,400 left) from entangled nets, and continue to protect this sacred area. Protect what you love. Together we are united by the ocean.

Spotlight Conservation effort of the Month

808 Cleanups

Every month we pair a design with a local conservation effort. For the month of June, with every Pineapple straw sold, we will be donating $1 to 808 Cleanups

808 Cleanups is a nonprofit organization that supports and empowers volunteers to inspire their communities to restore the islands of Hawaiʻi from Mauka (mountain) to Makai (ocean). They are committed to restoring Hawaiʻi’s natural beauty by conducting decentralized cleanups, responding to littering and vandalism of Hawaiʻi’s natural spaces, saving Hawaiʻi’s indigenous ecosystem through education, and building sustainable solutions with community partners. Their vision is to enjoy a world with clean and safe beaches, hiking trails, and natural spaces without encountering any evidence of human littering or graffiti tags on any natural surfaces. 808 Cleanups also envision a society that cleans and maintains the land and sea so that reactive cleanups become obsolete, allowing us to focus on long-term environmental restoration and education.

All their volunteers are asked to uphold their values as they malama aina (care for the land), which are stewardship, self-motivation, innovation, and respect. Some of their main issues that they tackle are litter, graffiti, & invasive plant removal, education & outreach, beach, park, trail & urban cleanups, and marine & coral reefs. If you would like to get involved, download their app 808Cleanups & connect with other volunteers, adopt a site program by creating your own team, or donate.

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.
