So, single use plastic is bad... like real bad. By now we've all seen the photo & video of the poor turtle with the plastic straw in it's nose or the news of all the restaurants and towns across the country banning plastic straws and bags.
Well, at Mermaid Straw, we're here to make the transition to eliminate single-use plastic straws a little better and more fun! Our stylish, eco-friendly, ocean friendly, dare we say beautiful (yes, straws can be beautiful!) straws are here to make a statement!
To get you started, we are giving away our original Mermaid Straw for FREE... just for joining the movement against plastic straws (and single use plastic in general!).
We are a team of ocean lovers, nature lovers, and animal lovers so it make sense that we have a passion for contributing and giving back by hosting cleanups all over the world including our local community and beaches around Lake Michigan.
This spring and summer we hosted beach cleanups on the last Sunday of every month. Here are the results:
🌎 8 cleanups completed
🗑 Over 3,800 pounds of trash picked up
👫 Over 1,500 volunteers
We would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who came out and helped us this season. We are so grateful for each and every one of you! 🙏❤️
Our goal for next season is to pick up over 5,000lbs of trash!
As part of our commitment to help #saveourcoeans, we donate 10% of our proceeds to a variety of Ocean Conservation Organisations every month. This means that every single purchase you make helps us give back to these incredible groups of people who are on the front lines every day fighting to protect and save our lakes, rivers, oceans and all the wildlife that live there.
These are the organizations we donate to:
