The Sand Straw company strives to create a reusable straw that gives back to the marine community. Each straw supports a different sea animal that is affected by plastic waste. This item includes three rainbow stainless steel reusable straws, a compact carrying case, and one cleaning brush. Sand Straw donates 10 percent of net profits to Whale conservancy through the Center for Whale Research with this product. Choosing to bring your own reusable straw wherever you go will help eliminate waste. Some scientists estimate 7.5 million plastic straws are polluting U.S. shorelines, and anywhere from 437 million to 8.3 billion plastic straws on shorelines around the world. And plastic straws are just a small percentage of the more than 8 million metric tons of plastic that end up in the ocean each year.
