Introducing the Ian Somerhalder Foundation Special Edition Strawesome

Ian Somerhalder FoundationIan Somerhalder

We are super excited to introduce our newest Special Edition Strawesome created in collaboration with the Ian Somerhalder Foundation.  We designed 3 straw ideas that represented who they are and then ISF asked their (huge) social media community to vote for a favorite. The outcome was a gorgeous barely bent smoothie straw we will reveal in a moment. Before we do, we want to share three qualities that really stood out for us about the people at ISF:

  1. ENERGY: It’s clean, pure, difference-making energy that is great to be around. They love what they do, are great to work with, and they move fast.
  2. WISDOM: They get the big picture. Everything impacts everything else. It’s both simple and wise.
  3. VISION: They empower youth (and lots of them) all over the world. Brilliant since today’s youth are the future.

Hats off to Ian and team for following their passion and using their resources to shape a better future! Now on to the straw…drum roll….


The One Planet Straw

The One Planet StrawThe new Special Edition Strawesome is The One Planet Straw. It is a see-thru barely bent smoothie straw with a unique and beautiful design representing the earth. The One Planet Straw reminds us that we are all truly one and that each of us has an impact on each other and our lovely planet. Reaching for this reusable glass straw will remind its owner of the power they have to shape the future through small everyday choices. Choose wisely!

To support all of ISF’s amazing projects and campaigns (we especially like the “Plastic Straws can Suck It” campaign), we will donate $7 from each sale of The One Planet Straw which is now available for purchase here in our web store.

  18. Congrats to the designer of the straw, really like the design! Ian, I really love what your foundation is all about and contributing to. I have a neighbor whose company makes designer glass tile out of recycled glass bottles(Oceanside Glasstile Co.) . Wouldn’t that be cool if a future design and straw could be made out of recycled glass!!! Thanks for caring about all the beautiful animals!

  19. I love this one, I am glad this one won, I believe this one represents ISF the best. I love how the world is on the straw. I support The Ian Somerhalder Foundation with all my heart, I want to work with at the Sanctuary being built when I finish school. Strawsome you guys did an amazing job on all your designs. I want to make the world a better place and the straws will help. These would be amazing to have and to go to using instead of people using plastic or things that can’t be recycled and it destroying this beautiful earth that we all should love. Thank you for supporting ISF and helping better the world

  29. So awesome. Ian Somerhalder was in my city a couple years back for some green energy generator thing. He seems to be a generally good guy who cares about the environment and animals this is awesome.

  30. When I bought my first Strawsome straws, I thought it was the epitome of Rich people’s problems on how to spend our money (JK, but I really did think that). I GOT the idea of not littering the planet w/more waste but thought, geez, do I have sooo much money that I now need glass straws?? Well, I bought 3 the first day and then a month later at another Fair, I bought 2 more…I LOVE them and tell everyone why they should use them too. Now I’m just glad that I can afford them and will buy Ian’s and the Save the Sea Turtles ones too…Thank you, Daedra for ‘blowing’ up my world w/a beautiful way to drink whatever I want 🙂 P.S. Also buying for stocking stuffers this year!!
