WHY AND HOW IT ALL STARTED

 

Straw by Straw offers sustainable products to the hospitality industry,  without compromising on fun or aesthetics.

It’s 2020, and plastic is fast becoming public enemy #1. The devastating effects of plastic on the environment are now widely known. Bars and restaurants are jumping on board the trend by banning the use of plastic straws. 

Straw by Straw was founded by Ev Liu, a recreational diver, so she’s someone who has been aware of the effects of plastic for a long time. 

Ev decided that awareness about the issue was not enough by itself -- to have an impact, you need to provide a solution.

With a focus on sustainable process, Ev started looking for a biodegradable material in the shape of a straw.  

Suddenly, she realised the word ‘drinking straw’ was derived from real straws. 

 And so, Straw by Straw was born. 

Now, the company still provides high-quality, sustainably-made and aesthetic straws, and also uses their product to open the conversation around plastic and the environment. 

Stocked in restaurants like De Japanner, Amsterdam’s cult Asian eatery, Straw by Straw is a hit with consumers, and proves that you don’t have to sacrifice comfort or style for a sustainable lifestyle.
