New Guy Harvey Stainless Steel Straws Benefit Ocean Conservation

Sales of new Guy Harvey stainless steel straws benefit ocean conservation

Perfectly aligned with the brand’s ocean sustainability efforts, Guy Harvey, Inc. has released a new collection of reusable stainless steel straw sets in partnership with S.T.E.E.L. Straws, a Cleveland-based company with the mission of saving millions of plastic straws from entering oceans daily. The straw sets are available at and

Plastic straws have an extraordinarily long life, taking 200 years to biodegrade, compared to a short average usage time of 20 minutes or less. According to S.T.E.E.L. Straws, as many as 500 million plastic straws are used daily, which is enough to wrap around the earth 2.5 times. Plastic straws create pollution during manufacturing, use and disposal, exposing humans to harmful toxic chemicals and killing 100,000 mammals in the sea each year.

“Ocean conservation is one of the pillars of the Guy Harvey brand. We welcome the opportunity to partner with a company like S.T.E.E.L. Straws, which aligns with our focus on the environment and conservation,” said Jane Tebbe-Shemelya, Chief Revenue Officer for Guy Harvey, Inc.

  • Guy Harvey Stainless Steel Straw Pack ($18)

All products are made from FDA-approved food-grade safe stainless steel and are conveniently packaged for use on-the-go. The reusable straws are dishwasher safe and come with a bristle cleaner to clean from the inside. All packaging is recyclable and zero single-use plastic is used in production and distribution.

“Our goal is to clean up the oceans by providing these sustainable plastic straw alternatives,” said Peter Barlow, CEO and one of the founders of S.T.E.E.L. Straws. “Not only are we trying to reduce waste going into the oceans, but we are providing others with the opportunity to do the same. This is a quick, easy and cost-effective way for someone to help reduce their overall carbon footprint with a sustainable straw.”

As with all Guy Harvey apparel, original artwork and merchandise, a portion of sales of the new Guy Harvey stainless steel straw sets benefit ocean conservation through the Guy Harvey Ocean Foundation (, a non-profit organization dedicated to saving the seas, supporting groundbreaking research and helping foster the next generation of ocean conservationists.
