Healthy Human Inc., a family owned and operated company that entered the market of vacuum insulated, reusable drinkware in 2015, is launching a new 12oz stainless steel tumbler and reusable, eco-friendly stainless steel straws to expand its line of stainless steel products.
“We use 500 million plastic straws in the United States every single day, that’s more than 38,000 plastic straws over the course of a lifetime. Worldwide, plastic straws are the sixth most common type of litter. In the United States, we don’t actually have recycling equipment that can effectively recycle straws. They quite literally fall through the cracks,” said Healthy Human CEO Richard Stanton. “Since we cannot recycle single-use plastic straws, they end up in landfills and many of them eventually find their way into our oceans, polluting and harming marine wildlife. From fish bellies, it is just a short journey to our plates. We are asking people to make a switch and use a more environmentally friendly alternative.”
The company offers sets of three and five stainless steel straws. The five piece stainless steel straw set includes a straw cleaner and a protective travel pack for convenient use on the go. The straws are dishwasher safe. As part of the launch of the stainless steel straws, Healthy Human partnered with the Charleston Chapter of Surfrider Foundation and will give back 50% of proceeds made from the sales of its three piece stainless steel straw set and 15% of proceeds made from the online sales of other stainless steel products (from May 26 through September 3, 2018) with the code SURFRIDER to help support the Charleston Strawless Summer campaign.
“To stop plastic pollution, we all need to know and share key facts and statistics. In addition to hundreds of millions of plastic straws that we use everyday, Americans throw away 25 billion styrofoam coffee cups every year, and 2.5 million plastic beverage bottles every hour. Our new to-go tumbler is smaller than the one we currently offer, and it comes with a reusable stainless steel straw. It can be re-used for cold and hot beverages and food items to replace disposable cups, lids and straws as part of our company’s ongoing mission to offer more environmentally friendly alternatives that are better for the planet and human health,” said Stanton. “As an avid world traveler, I have seen first hand what kind of crisis plastic pollution can become if we don’t take responsibility for the way we use plastic,” Stanton continues.
Healthy Human focuses on finding solutions for better health for people and sustainability for the planet. Their innovation is driven by their mission of bringing awareness to the problem of plastic pollution.
“With Healthy Human, I didn’t want to just create a business, I used this business opportunity to make a difference,” said Stanton.
Using only the highest quality food grade 18/8 stainless steel and BPA free plastic lids, Healthy Human makes their customers comfortable in knowing that the products they manufacture are safe for their health and better for the environment. Durable and vacuum insulated, Healthy Human bottles and tumblers will keep your hot drinks hot for 12 hours and your cold drinks cold for 24 hours.
