Let's make a change

The idea behind HALM

The idea of a sustainable alternative to plastic straws came during a beach clean-up on a trip to Thailand in 2015. Plastic straws are among the top 10 most commonly found waste on the beach, because every day about three billion plastic straws are thrown away after a single use.

After intensive research, we decided to use glass when we founded the company in 2016 due to many compelling advantages (reusability, pure taste, easy cleaning and great drinking experience). Since the market launch in 2017, enough HALM straws are being used by our customers that together now we save more than a ton of plastic waste on a daily basis.
