How it all began...
I’m lucky enough to live just a couple of miles from a quirky little town that time seems to have forgotten on the eastern coast of Florida. I take advantage of this luck as often as possible with long walks on beautiful beaches. You won’t find big hotels, thrill rides or crowds here. Instead, you will see a town full of people who are passionate about their little slice of the eastern Florida coast; especially the dunes, beaches and the sea turtles who come here year after year to nest.
The only downside, besides hurricanes, is that I see on an almost daily basis, the amount of litter on the beach with straws and cigarette butts being the most common. It gets frustrating to see straws along the tide line on a daily basis, and I wanted to do my part to clean my beach, but how?
Being a glass artist made it easy to decide the best way for me to help: reusable glass straws. Borosilicate glass is durable, dishwasher safe, and best of all – I could make the straws in my existing studio.
I would love to help you make a difference too – one straw at a time.
