Naked Straw is the effort of founder,  Kim Russo and her team of Environmental Advocates who provide an efficient and practical solution to one of the major sources of plastics pollution; single-use, disposable straws and cutlery made from petroleum. 

Their story began when Kim Russo traveled to Bali, Indonesia.  On her trip, she noticed several restaurants were using reusable bamboo straws.  Fully aware of the imminent plastic issue, she thought - BINGO!   Here’s the solution to a huge problem.  


After researching the straw industry, she realized that bamboo was not cost effective and too much of a financial leap from plastic straws.  Her search continued on, day and night, relentlessly.


Shortly thereafter, Kim’s friend Danny, aware that she was on a mission, came across straws and cutlery made from avocado pits and passed the information along to Kim.  She researched deeper and fell in love with them and that was the advent of Naked Straw!  

Naturally biodegradable in 240 days, cost effective, multi-use, non-gmo, environmentally safe - we can go on and on!!  Please visit our pros & cons page above  or click here PROS/CONS for many more happy details on why our straws & cutlery are so amazing.

We hope you love them as much as we do as we strive to save Mother Earth.

We all MUST work together to tackle this major issue because....


"If we are not part of the solution, then we’re part of the pollution."
