The Ocean Needs Us.
There is more plastic in the ocean than ever before. Micro-plastics are being found in the deepest parts of the ocean and in marine animals' stomach contents. The breakdown of plastics in saltwater is increasing the rate of coral bleaching and causing further detriment to the entire ecosystem.
We need to change now.
Here at Sunshine Straw Co, we believe it is our duty to become the change we want to see in our oceans. By starting with eliminating one of the most widely used single-use plastic products, straws, we are making one small step towards a big solution: Restoring our oceans to maintain a safe, healthy eco-system. The change starts here: Reusable, eco-friendly, metal straws available in our Sunshine Straw Co Metal Straw packs, bulk wholesale metal straws for restaurants, and metal straw accessories.
Not only do we aim replace single-use, plastic straws with reusable metal ones, but a portion of each sale goes towards conservation and ocean restoration programs.
How You Can Get Involved
Each day, try to minimize your eco-footprint.
This can be as simple as deciding to bring your own reusable straw while ordering a drink at a restaurant or coffee shop, or if you don't have one yet, skip the straw! Start getting used to reusable containers. Skip the disposable plates, flatware, and water bottles. Bring your own grocery bag while shopping instead of using plastic bags to transport your goods home.
To show our support for organizations that aim to protect our oceans, a portion of every sale goes to conservation and ocean restoration programs.
Looking to help? We suggest joining your local Surfrider Chapter. These guys host global groups, and focus mainly on ocean conservation projects. You can also volunteer with the Ocean Conservancy Organization and/or support Oceana, both of which are fantastic organizations.
