FinalStraw is a foldable straw that breaks down like tentpoles into a key chain.

Did you know that Americans use 500 million single-use plastic straws every day—enough to wrap around Earth 2.5 times? Many of these straws end up in our oceans and landfills. 

FinalStraw is working to change that with the world's first reusable, collapsible straw that fits on your keychain. In addition to being convenient and totally badass, FinalStraw is also super easy to clean on the go because it comes with a handy squeegee that fits right into the case. It self-assembles like magic, is BPA-free, and dishwasher safe. 

The body is stainless steel, the tube is medical-grade TPE, the case is recycled ABS, and the tip is food-grade silicone. The straw is 23 centimeters and the case weighs 2.8 ounces. They come in four colors: gray, green, coral, and blue.

Ultimately, we want to raise awareness to pressure restaurants to stop serving straws.

No more plastic pollution and no more forgetting your reusable straws at home.

Do you have a new product or company you want to pitch? Here's how to do it.
