"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!"
"SeaStraws has been a great step for many of our cafe partners towards reducing their environmental footprint."
"SeaStraws have been a great addition to our sustainable initiatives here at Marymount Manhattan College! The students and staff really enjoy this added option. We are also using the Birchwood coffee stirrers, which are also going well. We sold out of our straws in 3 weeks!"
A partnership rooted in sustainability.
SeaStraws empowers restaurants, businesses, and wholesale distributors to achieve environmentally conscious initiatives by providing sustainable straws and other single-use products. All businesses using our products are our partners in making drinking and dining sustainable.
