When preparing school lunches for my young daughters in early 2018, an idea came to me that if we had reusable straw that were easy to clean, I could pack healthy home-made drinks or milk for them instead of store-bought juice boxes. I went online and bought some reusable silicone as well as stainless steel straws. All of them represented an issue for me – I could never have peace of mind that they’re thoroughly clean! (Plus, I didn’t feel that the stainless steel ones were safe for kids to use). And after coming across the video of a turtle with a plastic straw stuck in its nose (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4MPHbpmP6_I), and learning more about how we go through 500 MILLION straws a day and they never really go away, my partner and I felt that we could reduce plastic pollution if we could come up with a better straw product. We were determined to come up with something that would allow users to open it up to wash and visually inspect that everything is sparkly clean on the inside! After many prototypes and a successful Kickstarter campaign to fund our product, we’re happy to introduce to you our patent-pending SImplyKLEAN Resealable, Reusable 100% Food Grade Silicone Straws!
