"At the onset, we looked for paper straws that promote not only the sustainable aspect of the product, but also its social impacts. Partnering with SeaStraws in our dining halls is the first step our guests take toward sustainable practices on a daily basis. Using backyard compostable paper straws, learning about why paper instead of plastic, fostering a connection to the ocean, and SeaStraws donating a portion of profits to NGOs are a few reasons why this partnership in our sustainability journey is so exciting!"

Monalisa Prasad — Director of Sustainability, New York University

Hi! We’re SeaStraws.

We do business inspired by our home: the Earth.

Here you’ll find straws and cutlery that are made from renewable forestry and backyard compostable, or contribute to a circular economy through reusability. We believe in sustainability, education, and advocacy to enable conversation in our community, where change starts. We believe a sustainable future is possible — and it happens when you get involved.

Let’s make a change!

Beyond straws, food service products are among 9 of the top 10 plastic items polluting our beaches and waterways. We can prevent this.
