Single use plastic straws have become a huge problem worldwide, EQUO has been designed to provide an alternative made from coconut, sugarcane, rice and grass.

“Manufacturing a new product that is based on natural eco-friendly materials is going to be expensive at the start and we know right now its priced higher than paper and plastic straws. We know we have challenges in this area of cost to the end consumer, but we believe if we get enough volume and interest we can work together with everyone to drive down the cost of our product to a price that is affordable for everyone. In order to negotiate and drive down the price we need mass support and orders to do so.”
