Metal Straws Show the Way to Sustainability
Stainless steel straws are a small but powerful tool in the fight against plastic pollution. In a world where 500 million single-use plastic straws are used and discarded every day in the United States alone, the switch to reusable stainless steel alternatives can make a significant impact.
Being lightweight and small, plastic straws easily escape being recycled and most end up in landfills and worse, in our oceans. Their small size also makes them one of the most dangerous pollutants, as they easily entangle marine life and can be ingested by them.
Making it easier to explore the brands and people working for good.
THE ECO STORY FOUNDATION
Circle of mindful living is incomplete without giving back. Sustainability is not just a buzzword at The Eco Story.
Through our work, we were able to reach out to the artisans and manufacturers working diligently in their far-flung villages to preserve local craft traditions and support their communities.
In turn, we decided to support these artisans beyond words for their skill and craftsmanship. Through The Eco Story Foundation we pledge to share our profits to empower & uplift these communities by investing in their social & local infrastructure. Write to us if you want to contribute or understand more on this.

It is not a good deal if you you don't need it.
