Why are we here
Friendly Straw is a brand dedicated to providing solutions to conventional disposables that harm the environment. Currently, the brand offers alternative options for drinking straws. However, the company plans to provide a wide range of solutions to the plastic disposable problem in the food and beverage industry and personal consumption in the long run. This is just the beginning; instead of inaction, we decided to take the first step, however small it may be.
And yes, we know plastics are just the tip of the iceberg on the sustainability problem. Therefore, to make a difference in the short term, Friendly Straw will donate 10% of its gross profit (that’s the number from sales minus cost of goods) to a non-profit organization that shares the same values as ours. Since NGOs change from time to time, we will also switch our donations’ beneficiaries if we find our funds are misallocated or misused.
