STRAWS THAT Preserve Rainforests Lyon Arboretum DESIGN: Hibiscus Tucked in the back of Manoa valley resides Lyon Arboretum, one of Oahu’s largest botanical gardens. Partnered with the University of Hawai’i, Lyon Arboretum conducts research on various tropical plants and endangered endemic Hawaiian plants. The public can not only enjoy the beauty of this garden, but also participate in the diverse programs the arboretum offers in terms of plant diversity and forest sustainability.
In an effort to preserve native Hawaiian biodiversity, we're curbing the growth of invasive bamboo & turning them into organic, reusable straws with minimal environmental impact. Every straw is handmade with ALOHA. It's a WIN-WIN for our daily lives, at the same time, restoring Hawai'i's native forests to prevent the extinction of endemic species and creating jobs for our local community.
