Imagine, you’re a surveyor in Northern Alaska. It’s mid-January. You’ve lost your way, all communication with your team has vanished, and your supplies are running thin. You are also severely dehydrated, which is greatly inhibiting your ability to, well, survive.
You have been unable to find liquid freshwater, and you begin to hear the distant swings of the Reaper’s sythe. You suspect there is shallow groundwater beneath the permafrost, but at this point, your hands are about as nimble as a pair of frozen potatoes.
You sigh in agony. A tear dribbles down your face before freezing on your cheek.
Suddenly, it comes to you: “My Swigstick Stainless Steel Straw in a Red Carrying Case!” You grapple at your supply bag, unscrew the red cap, extend the straw, and—with great effort—force it through the permafrost.
You sip all the water you can sip, giving you enough strength to fire your flare. Your team sees the signal and saves your life.

Choosing SwigStick eco-friendly straws is one step towards helping the environment. Reduce your plastic footprint with style!
Many believe we are living in the Plastic Age. And there is no doubt this synthetic polymer called plastic has made our lives generally safer and easier. Yet out of the 300 million tons of plastic produced each year, half is designed for a single use. These single use plastics include bags, food packaging, water and soda bottles, coffee stirrers, and more, including plastic straws.
In the United States alone we use approximately 500 million straws daily. Many end up in our oceans and some studies have found a link between plastic pollution in oceans and increased ocean acidification. Increased ocean acidification creates warmer water, hurting our marine life and ultimately hurting humans.
And there’s the more obvious problem with fish and turtles ingesting or getting tangled in plastic.
I have three grown children and over the years I’ve learned a lot about life from hearing their stance. They are worried about some big issues, but climate change and sustainability seem to be the most pressing from their perspectives, and from mine.
