That would be me. Marty Walters, holding a RealStraw.
Question: Is growing a straw in NY and then making it in NY
just a bit more sustainable than growing one halfway around
the world, and then shipping it thousands of miles?
Consider the carbon footprint of other grain stem straws:
shipped from Beijing China, 6653 miles to Buffalo;
shipped from Ho Ch Minh City, Vietnam, 8718 miles to Buffalo.
Why buy a RealStraw?
Because a RealStraw replaces plastic and paper straws.
Because you care about the environment.
Because a RealStraw looks great in your drink.
Because each RealStraw is unique: handmade by me and Mother Nature.
I hand-cut, sort, wash, dry, and box these straws, just for you.
Because a RealStraw is cool as hell. And so are you.
Can you please help me out, and order a few boxes,
or even just one box, today?
I sincerely appreciate your support!
After you order, I invite you to read more about my
RealStraw adventure on the "good story" page.
