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

Hawai'i Marine Response (HMAR)

Every month we pair a design with an organization we stand by. For the month of May, with every Kohola & Naia straw sold, we will be donating $1 to the Hawai'i Marine Animal Response (HMAR)

Hawai’i Marine Animal Response (HMAR) devotes their time to undertake substantial actions to ensure the preservation, recovery, and stewardship of Hawaii’s marine protected species and the ocean ecosystem. They are the largest Hawaii-based non-profit marine species conservation & response organization of dedicated volunteers, interns, and staff on Oahu and Molokai. HMAR focuses on growing active and engaged community support, managing and increasing protected species populations, and saving animals in need. Through their six programs (field & support & outreach; education & engagement; marine debris; rescue & stranding response; marine operations; dispatch & reporting),  they are able to accomplish their vision of Hawaii’s ocean ecosystem shared in sustainable harmony by humans and marine protected animals such as Hawaiian monks seals, sea turtles, and seabirds.

If you would like to get involved, you can (1) volunteer, (2) report a sighting or animal in distress, (3) donate.
