Special Edition – The Orangutan Straw

Orangutan Land Trust 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.

Strawesome is proud to sponsor Orangutan Land Trust, a charity dedicated to supporting sustainable solutions for the long-term survival of the orangutan in the wild.  The Orangutan StrawStrawesome will donate all proceeds from the sale of this special edition straw, designed exclusively to reflect the winding vines of the orangutan’s rainforest, to the orangutan release fund for Orangutan Land Trust.

Orangutan Land Trust will use the proceeds from this straw to help release rescued orangutans back into safe areas of forest, where they belong.  We are happy to support a charity that values eco-friendly options like our reusable drinking straws.
