Special Edition – The Kick Out Toxics Straw

Enviromental Defense LogoThis month, we are focusing our attention on supporting the organizations / people that we’ve made Special Edition straws for. It’s one way we give back to causes and projects worth supporting.

First up is Environmental Defence, Canada’s most effective environmental action organization, working to challenge, and inspire change in government, business and people to ensure a greener, healthier and prosperous life for all. With a focus on fighting pollution in people, they work to protect and improve your family’s health and environment.

The Kick Out Toxins StrawStrawesome donates all proceeds from the sale of this special edition straw, designed exclusively to reflect the Environmental Defence logo, to their work to educate people about cancer-causing toxins in everyday products, and how to avoid them.

Having led the successful charge to get toxic bisphenol A (BPA) out of baby bottles in Canada, your support will help Environmental Defence tackle other harmful chemicals hidden in our products.

Visit environmentaldefence.ca to learn more about the campaign, and to get some great tips and guides on staying safe from toxic substances in your products.

  4. Nice! I like the red. I’ve been carrying the straw I got from you in my purse and using it when I go out to eat, much better than plastic and I love the convenience of the carrying case!

  8. Our world is the air we breathe, the warmth of the sun, the rain, what we put on our body and what we put in our body is just as important as what we use to drink from. Thank you Strawesome for making our world a better place one sip at a time!

  13. I just had a section in my biology class about epigenetics and BPA- hopefully they will see all these “disposable” plastics differently…
