Our Story

Hey there! Nice to meet you. Here's a little bit about us —


The SeaStraws team may be located on the island of Manhattan, but their heart lies in the Jersey Shore. The one thing we had to look forward to as kids were summers at Brick Beach, and the weekly venture down the parkway became completely worth it from the moment we stepped on the sandy beach and gleamed at the glistening morning summer ocean. We want to preserve this feeling for future generations.

Straws may seem menial, but their issues add up exponentially. Americans use over 500 MILLION plastic drinking straws per day, and NONE of them are biodegradable or compostable. Once they fly into the ocean, they circulate among the plastic that comprises 90% of sea trash today.

We chose to start SeaStraws because we believe that small actions add up. Our mission is to use drinking straws to accelerate the movement towards a plastic-free world, and all restaurants, coffee shops, juice bars, or offices that use our product are our PARTNERS in this fight. Made in the USA with the highest quality of FSC certified paper, every sip of a SeaStraw contributes to cleaner oceans.

To make things easy for you, we've decided to include our straws as part of a monthly subscription format. We never charge petty cancellation, subscription change, or even shipping fees. We have a set price, and 5% of what you pay always goes to the Plastic Pollution Coalition, a nonprofit aiming to stop plastic pollution.

So, join us if you want to help out our cause. Sustainability has never been so stylish, and we'd love to welcome you as a partner on our journey.

With love from NYC to Jersey and beyond,
The SeaStraws Team
