Miles Pepper came across a viral video that showed a plastic straw being pulled out of a suffering sea turtle’s mouth. The video highlighted the severe impact of plastic straws on the planet. He discovered that reuseable staws did exist, however, they were inconvenient to carry around.
He was introduced to environmentalist Emma Rose Cohen through a friend and the two of them set out to create Final Straw: a reusable, collapsible, carry-with-you straw that’s better for the planet.
