A 2 Day Virtual Event for Ecopreneurs who are ready to make a bigger impact on our planet #ecopreneurs4earthday
Can you save the world one straw at a time? Just in the US alone they use 182,5 BILLION straws a year, which if you do the maths you’ll arrive at about 73,000 metrics tons of plastic straws a year. Crazy facts, hey!
Well in this episode, we explore why it’s important to pull up our socks, just because you can’t see the problem necessarily at your doorstep, doesn’t mean straws aren’t a problem! And leading the crusade against single use plastic is Emma Rose Cohen.
My guest is Emma, is the CEO and founder of Final, creators of FinalStraw—the world’s first reusable, collapsible straw that raised nearly $2 million on Kickstarter. Since 2018, Emma has grown Final from a one product company to a company with an entire line of convenient, sustainable alternatives. In 2020, Final launched BiggieStraw, FinalSpork, and FinalFork.
IN TODAY’S EPISODE WE CHAT ABOUT
- How with dedication anyone can run a successful Kickstarter campaign
- What it’s like to do not 1 but 2 TedX talks on a global platform
