Simple and Sweet display for Retail Stores

Looking for a way to display your Glass Straws?

Our packaging is made so you can hang it if you have peg board but if you don’t no worries.  Mason Jars work great!  Or any wide mouth glass jar or vase.  This store decided to add our logo onto the jars to really make it pop.  If you are in Pace, FL check out Alternative Health Food Store  

The picture above is from their store.  Great Idea!  Those are our Carrying Cases hanging underneath too.

Fall Fest 2017

Fall Fest at Second Use Market

Fall Fest…. THANK YOU!  What a great weekend!  We don’t make it out to many markets lately and sure glad that we made it to this one.  We LOVE everyone involved.  From the coordinators to the other vendors down to all the people that come to visit.  It is amazing.  This market was great for the whole family too!

Thank you to all who came and visited our booth!  It was a pleasure to meet you and talk about single use plastic pollution and show you a great alternative for plastic straws.  This market we didn’t have too many people come over that didn’t know about how bad the plastic pollution is.  With “Strawless in Seattle” happening awareness has boomed.

It was funny because we have been doing this for over 3 years and when people would say we had perfect timing we would chuckle… More like Seattle finally had perfect timing!  We are glad to be here and to be able to offer a great alternative.

Here are a few photos from our day.

Hope you come visit us next time!! It was a blast.

Much love everyone!

We are excited and wanted to share this with you in hopes that you would like to join us and all the others.  There is so much that can be one we just have to start making simple changes.  It is the little things that add up to something huge!  We can make a difference.  Here is a link to PlasticFreeJuly.Org so you can check it out yourself and then sign up.  🙂

Plastic Straws – A film in the works

Upcycled curved glass straws

A Film in the works about Plastic Straws

Are you aware of how many plastic straws are used in a day?  Or how they affect the environment?  Have you ever seen what happens when sea creatures get plastic stuck on them or in them?  There is a documentary that is in the works at the moment that tells you a little bit about those things and more.

STRAWS: a documentary film for a sea of change

By Linda Booker

 

We are really excited about this film.  It seems as though some people have no clue about how many plastic straws are used in a day.  We have been asked many times “What’s so bad about plastic straws?” and when we tell them how many are used in a day and really draw a picture of what that looks like they then say “Wow…I had no idea.  That is a problem.”  This film is really important for the awareness of plastic straw pollution.

We are very happy to say that we are a proud supporter of this film.  We donated some of our Elegant Curves glass straws as well as our Sea Turtle Love glass straws.  The Sea Turtle Love glass straw was created for some backers of the Kickstarter for the film.  If you haven’t checked out the Kickstarter campaign here is the link STRAWS Kickstarter Campaign.   Check the link out and if you can donate.  There are some really cool rewards when you donate.

Here is the link to their website, Check it out  http://www.strawsfilm.com/

Much love to you all!  We hope that your summer adventures are treating you well and that you help reduce the plastic straw pollution by saying “No thank you” to those plastic straws.  Bring your own straw!  Glass, steel or bamboo straws are all better than plastic.

Newest addition to the Glass Straw Family

Meet the newest member of the Glass Straw Family!

Newest member of the glass straw family - Aurora Alis
Newest member of the glass straw family – Aurora Alis

Aurora Alis

Just wanted to share with you the newest member of our glass straw family.  Once she is big enough and needing a straw it will be Glass Straws all the way.

On March 1 at 12:59pm Aurora Alis was brought into this wonderful world.  She was scheduled for March 10 but she couldn’t wait that long.  We all had this feeling that she wasn’t going to wait.  She was ready to be held in our arms instead of the womb.  She is now 11 days old and doing great!

Aurora is a healthy little baby girl.  When she was born she was 8 pounds and 21.5 inches long.  She just had a check up at her doctors and she is now 8 pounds 6 ounces.  And since she is doing so well she doesn’t have to go back until her 2 month check up.  We couldn’t be happier.

The Joy of Raising a Baby

We’re glad you joined our family,
Yet some things make us wonder;
How can a little package like you
Have a voice that’s loud as thunder?

You are so small and oh so cute,
But you are never very shy,
For whenever you want something brought to you,
You just open your mouth and cry.

First you moved on hands and knees,
Then you were up on your feet.
We’re chasing you all around the house;
We’re tired; we need a retreat!

Your food is smeared over the table;
Your food is on the floor;
Seems the only place food didn’t go,
Is in the baby we adore.

Diapers here and diapers there,
Stinky… smelly… Whew!
Diapers would have done us in,
If we didn’t love you as we do.

We’re glad you joined our family,
You’re a unique and wonderful treasure.
So, despite the work of raising you,
Being your parents is a total pleasure!

By Karl and Joanna Fuchs

Much love to you all!!

Love,

Summer Time!!

Summer is here!!

The sun is out and the water is cool, Summer is here!  Time to go to the beach or river, pack a picnic basket with an organic lunch and eco friendly glass straws, and soak up some sun. Plan a trail hike or or a lazy day at the lake. How about a relaxing camping trip or a fun concert festival? All of our customers are taking thier glass straws to summer events, concerts, fairs, and  Burning Man!

Don’t forget the water!  Stay hydrated and drink plenty of water.  And remember to bring your glass straws along with you.  This way you don’t have to use plastic straws when you are out.  And if you have a case for your straws then you can protect your glass straws and keep them clean. Remember to bring enough to trade or gift with your friends!

We hope you all have a safe and fun Summer.  Don’t forget to pick up your trash when you leave your places of fun.

This article from OurNationalParks.us shows just how much of an impact you can have!

According to Dana Soehn, volunteer coordinator for the park, volunteers spent 3,410 hours exclusively on litter patrol projects last year.

“We also spent another 4,518 hours cleaning up our backcountry trails and campsites and then another 3,352 hours on special patrols in the backcountry where we had to recover large amounts of litter left behind by unprepared hikers,” said Soehn. “Not only do the VIPs [volunteers in-park] help our park look better, but they also help us protect both the terrestrial and aquatic habitats, making them a cleaner, healthier environment.”
