Say goodbye to plastic straws!

The goal of the campaign is to raise awareness about the dangers of plastic pollution while offering a solution any individual can easily make. Not only are we providing a free reusable straw but also the education through our global OneLessStraw campaign. What better way to start your journey in declaring your independence from plastic straws? With your help, “Declaring Your Independence from Plastic Straws” will be an event to remember. It’ll be the day we all declared our independence from plastic straws! Remember, "Anybody can make a difference... If we can, you can too".

The OneLessStraw pledge campaign is a campaign created by One More Generation - a nonprofit organization founded by Olivia and Carter Ries when they were 7-8 years old back in 2009. Imagine the impact you can have for generations to come. By supporting our global OneLessStraw campaign, you're also helping the future of the planet. National Geographic recently used a single-use plastic bag on their cover titled "Planet or Plastic" which is a perfect question we should all be asking ourselves... what will you choose - Planet or Plastic?

Get your free reusable straw from our friends at Simply Straws (just pay postage) when you take the OneLessStraw pledge and join our global OneLessStraw campaign, and we can be part of the solution together!

Read what our newest partner Hilton Hotels had to say about us: “Last week Hilton Hotels committed to removing plastic straws from all of its 650 managed hotels globally. We are excited to share that this will save an estimated 35 million straws per year from potentially ending up in the ocean! We’re proud to work alongside Olivia and Carter and all OneLessStraw partners to combat global plastic pollution and to ensure future generations will have an opportunity to enjoy a "less plastic" environment.”
