BOCA RATON, Fla.  — A new Boca Raton-based company is doing its part to cleanup the environment one straw at a time.

Strawfish is the brainchild of friends, Aaron Kleinert, Tomer Bitton, and Kyle Lansing.

Their company started in January and is already chipping away at plastic pollution with quality paper straws.

Bitton says,” It’s gluten free which a lot of people don’t know is a thing and last 3-5 hours.”

An additional selling point is the price.

Kleinert explains, “Our mission is to give away every single straw for free.”

The Strawfish guys allow businesses to have straws sponsored and printed with a logo on it, this allows them to give straws away for free.

Alternatively, businesses can have their own logo on the product.

Kyle Lansing says, “We wanna be able to get on a global scale we can distribute anywhere in the world like we said we want to distribute every paper straw for free and get enough companies behind us to make that push.”

The straws biodegrade after six weeks but the Strawfish teams say they hope to leave a lasting impression.
