Patent on folding drinking straw unlikely to happen, causes rush to market of less expensive products.

Even though a patent is pending or applied for by Final Straw, it is seen by many as unlikely that a patent will be granted given the nature of the product and the fact that other folding straws may already have been patented in the past.

When a Kickstarter campaign goes insane such as this one, the promoters are often caught in a huge self-made mess. Newbie manufacturers whose initial goal is to sell 500 units and end up selling 80,000 units can get into production bottlenecks that may take years to untangle.

Lack of patent is good news for the consumer.

The good news for a non patented item like the folding reusable collapsible straw is that with more factories in the game the price is driven down and the availability is widened. This is helpful as a price issue but also helps us as a consumer society needing to replace the current problem with one time use plastic straws.

“The rush by multiple offshore factories in producing these is great for the consumer as it drives down price making these useful eco tools more affordable.”

turtle with straw in its nose prompts folding reusable drinking straw

Reusable folding drinking straw gets another boost as McDonalds and Starbucks move to ban plastic straws.

The trend to ban plastic straws continues its worldwide movement as both Starbucks and McDonalds ban plastic straws.

Disposable plastic straws continue to be the poster child for everything bad in the world of non-recyclable plastics and major corporations are taking notice.

As is often the case, major corporations start at the edges of their business empires and then quickly move towards the center. Today both McDonald’s and Starbucks of India banned the use of all disposable plastics including drinking straws.

This ban comes amidst an ever-increasing chorus of bans from cities, states and countries banning the disposable plastic straw. This ban includes Seattle, Vancouver and over 500 other cities.

What started all of this, a Turtle Video?

Yes…24 million views of the video below showing a sea turtle having a disposable plastic straw wrenched from its nostril (where it had become embedded in its sinus and throat) has prompted a worldwide backlash against the disposable straw and given rise to the folding stainless steel drinking straw.

The disposable plastic straw is now being banned worldwide. Seattle bans plastic straws.

The Promotional Products market gets in early on the trend.

Often the promotional products market is slow to adopt new ideas but the folding reusable straw is out of the gate and available for corporate promotions as of August 1, 2018. Get it here first.

Folding reusable straw hits marketing homerun! Seattle Mariners consider Last Straw.

Major League Baseball team Seattle Mariners consider reusable folding straw as next promo giveaway!

Seattle is one of over 400 communities world wide (and growing) that has recently banned all plastic drinking straws from being used or sold in the city, state, county or province.

It seems that each day a new community from around the world is getting on the bandwagon to ban plastic drinking straws. A groundswell movement first started by the Turtle Video seen by over 28 million people, the ban is despised by plastic straw manufacturers but loved by the promotional products industry.

Last Straw Folding Drinking Straw is ideal for Promotional Product Marketing.

The promotional products industry is always looking for new ideas, trending swag that can have a corporate or event logo put on it. Initially skeptical about the straw due to issues of cleanliness etc., the distributors have now been educated in regards to the folding drinking straw Last Straw’s bacteria resistant properties and overall usefulness.

The Trend is your Friend!

There is an old adage in business that the trend is your friend. In the case of the folding drinking straw the trend is partly due to the Turtle Video but also the oversubscribed Kickstarter campaign done by Final Straw. They set out to raise $12,500 and instead raised nearly $2 Million!

” The Trend Is Your Friend and the Folding Drinking Straw is going to be a Huge Trend!”

This trend should be an indicator to Promo Marketers that this is a product to get their logo on!

“The trendsetting folding drinking straw. You may not use it but you will absolutely buy it!”

The herd mentality of the environmental movement is hard at work with the pending release of the folding collapsible reusable drinking straw.

The folding drinking straw is the “must-have” keychain accessory that may not see a lot of use but if you don’t own one and use a disposable plastic straw instead you run the risk of being seen as a modern day Typhoid Mary.

Promo Motive is set to be one of the first offering the Last Straw as a promotional product. Call 1-888-908-1481 or email John@PromoCrunch.com for more info…

“Promo experts predict the Last Straw folding drinking straw will be the hula hoop for 2019!”

The promo industry has long been the place for businesses both big and small to seek out new products and ideas to slap their logo on. The 27 Billion dollar industry is often thought of as being somewhat slow to embrace new ideas despite their mantra of being innovative. However, it seems that when it comes to the folding reusable straw they are way ahead of the curve.

What caused the big stir about folding drinking straws?

Basically two disparate but simultaneous events started the ball rolling on the foldable, reusable drinking straw.

The first was the Turtle Video. This haunting and emotion evoking video shows a plastic disposable drinking straw being yanked out of its nose for almost 10 excruciating minutes!

The second was the Final Straw Kickstarter campaign!

Final Straw came out with a version of the folding straw that raised 38443 backers who each paid between $20-$30 for a single folding straw. The total pledged was $1,894,878 to help bring this project to life. Originally they sought about 1000 or so backers. Obviously they’ve exceeded their wildest dreams!

Promo Motive has created their own version of this folding straw which will be available August 1.

Promo supplier Promo Motive, the supplier that “Does Weird Well!” is pleased to announce the upcoming release of the logoable collapsible stainless steel straw, scheduled for August 1st with a distributor retail price C of between $7-$8.50 at MOQ.

Unthinkable scenario seems more and more likely as countries, states and cities move enmasse to ban disposable plastic straws.

The disposable plastic straw has come to an end in many marketplaces faster than anyone anticipated. A lot of this is due to 2 things happening independently of each other but both interlocking.

 

“Using plastic disposable is already illegal to use in over 400 cities, counties and states worldwide, can imprisonment for its use be far behind?”

The Turtle with the straw in its nose video.

This heartwrenching video made by an intrepid group of eco warriors brought home the point that even our most cherished wildlife is endangered by our addiction to unnecessary plastics. In the video it shows the Turtle rescuers pulling out a foot long plastic straw that has been embedded in the Turtles nostril!

The invention of the folding eco-friendly stainless steel straw.

Spurred on by companies such as Final Straw and Last Straw a new way to think of a drinking straw has emerged. The idea of a folding, key chain, collapsing stainless steel straw is going viral. Made from bacteria resistant stainless steel and bacteria resistant food grade silicone, the folding drinking straw works as a long term solution. Instead of throwaway one-time use straws the user can carry around this reusable and recyclable folding steel straw.

Massive price drop of 50% on collapsible folding drinking straw predicted!

Price drop of collapsible folding drinking straw could be 50% or more!

The wholesale price of the trendsetting collapsible and folding eco-friendly drinking straw, the Last Straw is rapidly declining.

Originally the idea of a folding straw was launched on a hugely successful Kickstarter campaign sold at a price of $30 per unit. This was done by Final Straw and we are now seeing other variations of this design coming to the market for prices well under $10 with further price drops expected. Read why below.

Why such a massive price decline?

We have seen the same massive price declines in many previous successful Kickstarter campaigns. The problem or reason seems to be the disconnect between invention and manufacturing.

Inventors and their inventions are often not well clued into the costs and procedures of off-shore manufacturing and at the same time their propensity to oversubscribe their initial Kickstarter offering, as tempting as that may be, can cause enormous problems as seen in production delays, cost overruns and more.

Lets consider last year’s Fidget Cube. Initially the inventors sought $15,000 as start up money to get their Fidget Cube molded and marketed. They offered each Kickstarter investor a single cube for $25. Instead of raising $15,000 they raised more than $6,000,000.00! Currently the wholesale on a cube is about $2.

Now this may seem like a good problem for Fidget Cube to have had but trust me things aren’t always rosy!

Why is this a problem?

The problem is really a variety of problems combining to make one big headache for the original manufacturer and to simultaneously rapidly accelerate a whole lot of competitors to make a similar product, especially as this product may not yet be patented and may not be patented, ever!

Oversubscribed Kickstarter campaigns can rapidly accelerate a whole lot of competitors to make a similar product, especially as the product is not yet patented and may not be patented, ever!

 

If a promoter/inventor of a new take on an idea gets too successful on Kickstarter then they can easily create a huge bottleneck in development and early production. If you are a newbie manufacturer not used to how China works, the manufacturing and delivery issues unique to the country and how to ramp up production quickly and effortlessly, then you end up with a delivery problem of enormous size. This is seemingly what happened to Fidget Cube with their initial deliveries being delayed months past promised dates. This could easily be the same for Final Straw as they too have oversubscribed significantly their Kickstarter campaign with their delivery dates now not scheduled until November 2018!

We have the Last Straw available for wholesale as of August 1, 2018.

Watch the Turtle Video that caused such a stir and the reason why cities and states are banning the disposable plastic straw.

It’s no secret that our oceans are awash in wasteful consumer plastic that threatens the planets and its animals. Nowhere was this more poignant than in the video shown below.
