Welcome! We’re so glad you found Save The Turtles and we hope you love our products and mission as much as we do! Let’s get to know each other…


WHO WE ARE

Save The Turtles is a small company that sells metal straws to people wanting to reduce their plastic waste. We love the ocean and all the animals who live in it and we believe it’s worth preserving.

That’s why, in 2018, a few friends decided to establish Save The Turtles with the simple mission to decrease plastic pollution by creating high-quality metal straws to replace harmful plastic straws.

WHAT WE DO

Did you know that humans have created over 8 billion tons of plastic waste since 1950 the world over? Up to 12.7 million metric tons of that plastic waste makes its way into our oceans each year, polluting the water and killing ocean animals. If turtles and other sea creatures run into plastic waste in the ocean, mistaking it for food, they may try to swallow and digest it. If these poor animals don’t die from choking on plastic bags, straws, and other debris, they will slowly die because the plastic in their stomachs prevents them from digesting their food properly.

Sadly, it is estimated that over 100 million ocean animals are killed by plastic waste each year.

Here at Save The Turtles, we want to do our part to help save the turtles and all other ocean creatures affected by human-caused pollution of the world’s oceans.

WHAT MAKES US UNIQUE

As we become more pollution-conscious as a society, we’re all trying to be kinder to the planet and the animals. Part of that means replacing plastic straws with reusable ones so that we won’t continue to dump that plastic into the ocean and landfills.

However, as this is a relatively recent venture, many of the reusable straws on the market right now are inconvenient and poorly-crafted.

With Save The Turtles reusable metal straws, you can use a high-quality straw that is fun and convenient to use, while doing your part to save the turtles and our oceans from further pollution.

Our metal straws are made of top food-grade 18/8 304 stainless steel. They’re FDA-approved and BPA-free, meaning that they’re healthy and safe for you and your family to use. Our straws don’t have a metal aftertaste and are not susceptible to oxidation, even after regular use.

These metal straws are specially-made to be dishwasher safe, reusable, and 100% eco-friendly. One set of our stainless steel straws can be consistently reused for years and years, replacing hundreds or thousands of plastic straws that could otherwise end up in the ocean.

MAKE A DIFFERENCE

In addition to working hard to create high-quality, reusable metal straws to cut down on plastic pollution, we also donate 70% of our profits to the Sea Turtle Conservancy. This non-profit has been working to help sea turtles survive in our polluted oceans since 1959. We hope that Save The Turtles can do its part to provide concerned citizens like you with one more means to help reduce pollution in your life!
