Free Straws For Earth Day

In celebration of Earth Day 2018, all StrawSleeves orders from the Etsy Shop will include a free non-plastic straw during the month of April. The current trend to replace all plastic straws is spiraling in the news, and many sippers are left wondering if they will ever use straws in the future. Single use, non-plastic straws are one answer, the waste they produce is biodegradable. There are many reusable straws on the market including glass, metal, bamboo, and silicone, made to last much longer. Reusable straws are a best answer for avid straw users who want to avoid plastic.

StrawSleeves customers that order less than $10.00 in April will receive a free straw from Kids Think Big. These reed straws, organically grown in South America, can be re-used with gentle care. The reeds are much stronger than natural straw, so they perform somewhere in between the gauge of single use and reusable. (Dishwasher not recommended.) Please visit the Kids Think Big website to find out more about how their focus is to “Educate, Entertain, Empower” our youth on the topic of planet care.

Orders from StrawSleeves totaling $10.00 to $25.00 (in April) will receive a Bamboo Straw from These rugged bamboo straws are popular for the variety of shapes and colors that the naturally grown bamboo produces. Each straw is unique in appearance. The bamboo, grown locally in Southern California, is crafted by volunteers for this non-profit organization. These bamboo straws are 100% USA made. Bamboo has natural anti bacterial properties, is a sustainably grown, and is a renewable resource, making these straws a perfect choice for both hot and cold beverages. You can visit the StrawFree website to find a variety of these straws available for sale and the purchase price funds activities geared toward plastic free living.

Orders over $25.00 will receive a stainless steel straw from the StrawSleeves store and orders $100.00 and over will receive an additional free straw sleeve to take your reusable straw with you when you travel or go out on outtings.

Many thanks to all of the providers of sustainable brands and products that make refusing plastic, and specifically, single use plastic, an easy choice for us all!
