Customer Q&A Ask a Question

What is the difference between these types of straws?
Straws are available in a variety of diameters based on their intended purpose and function. Sip straws are approximately 1/8" in diameter and used for cocktails and sipping on hot drinks. Jumbo straws are often the standard size for various beverages and measure around 1/4”. Super jumbo straws are also around 1/4” in diameter and some even feature built-in spoons for thick drinks. Milkshakes and smoothies are great for drinking out of Giant straws thanks to their 5/16" diameters, and Colossal straws at approximately 1/2" in diameter are perfect for frozen concoctions.

From Plastic to Paper - Testimonial

Check out the video below for a testimonial from Freehold bar in Brooklyn New York about the millions of plastic straws they kept out of the ocean through a partnership with the Lonely Whale Foundation and using paper straws.

Google search: how much plastic is in the ocean? One garbage truck's worth of plastic is dumped into the sea every minute, and the situation is getting worse. But we can change that one plastic straw at a time (and we don't even need a snorkel). We partnered with Oceanic Global to challenge a bar in Brooklyn to stop using plastic straws. Brice Jones, Partner of Freehold: "I think it was a really small thing for us to do to make the environment a lot better." Here's what happened at Freehold: Brice Jones: "It's really not that much to ask customers to go without a straw or with a paper straw until they make a massive impact." Brad Gallagher, Partner of Freehold: "People have really bought into it. I thought there were going to be some challenges but taking it out and then giving them an answer why we're doing it, they really really have been respectful." Brice Jones: "And it was much easier to pull off from an implementation level than we really expected." Alie Moya, Bartender: "As soon as you explain it to people they're just like 'oh yeah, that's great!'" Brad Gallagher: "It's pretty impressive to see my staff get really behind it and really embrace it." Alie Moya: "You know, have you seen the video of the turtle with the cocktail straw in his nose? We're trying not to be that bar." Brad Gallagher: "I grew up on the ocean so it's like a part of my life, so just kind of delving into the research and finding out how many straws we actually use (Americans use five hundred million plastic straws every day), to be kind of aware of that, like, it's kind of an easy choice." Brice Jones: "With just the launch we saved one and a half million straws from our business alone. (We're challenging restaurants to reduce their ocean impact and ditch the plastic straw. Help us keep five hundred million plastic straws out of the ocean in 2017) One small foot ahead of the other is really awesome the way it gets something done. Every bar gets one other bar to do this, you guys should be able to do it within a year."
