The Folding Collapsible Reusable Drinking Straw to be Biggest Promo for late 2018!

I feel very strongly that the folding collapsible reusable drinking straw will be Promo’s biggest idea for late 2018 and into 2019!

I know this sounds a little over the top. But I know how to spot this trend from my own previous experiences plus some good old science!

The Backstory.

2 years ago, we were onto Fidget Spinners. This was 4 months before anyone else. We spotted the trend in kids early, we did our research into what and why it was, what it was! We specialize in trending ideas for the promo world.

We analysed it to see the fidget spinner would it work as logo’d swag. Then we had our factory in China product source these with a guaranteed delivery. We were lined up, ready to rock before we took a single order. We delivered. Click here to read the Campaign Live article.

 

“We seem to be very good at spotting trends and analyzing the data to reaffirm our trend suspicions and then quickly getting a bullet-proof manufacturing and delivery method in place for logo’d goods. We are a promo supplier that likes to deliver weird well”

 

Stats for the folding reusable drinking straw called Last Straw.

I am a bit of a stats geek so everyday I do a thorough check on our sites and social media pages as well as run an algorithm on social media trends. Interestingly enough, during the past 3 weeks, the overall stats for folding drinking straws have shown a nearly 300% increase!

See the simple stats below taken from our site comparing a normal week to a straw week.

Want to Know How to Sell the Folding Reusable Drinking Straw.

“The selling points on the folding straw is not all about the function of it, it’s about the emotional appeal of it!”

First Point.

This all started with a Turtle video. The storyline is simple: ecologists and scientists working in Costa Rica come across a Turtle in distress. They pull it aboard and find a plastic straw stuck in its nose. WARNING: Video has disturbing images. 

Second Point.

After over 30 million views of the video and a greater understanding of how billions of plastic straws were ending up in the oceans and staying undegradable for up to 500 years, cities and countries around the world banned the sale and use of disposable plastic straws.

Third Point.

It’s not about why would anyone pay $7-9 for a straw, but more importantly it’s about what it says about a brand to have their logo on a folding reuseable drinking straw.

Your client’s logo on a LAST STRAW says to the world that the client cares about the environment, is on top of the latest trends and lastly, but not least, they want to be seen as helping solve a recognized world problem and being a part of the solution!

___________________________________________________________________________________________________

Some Distributors say that “No One Will Buy it or Use It!”

These distributors may be sort of right but at the same time COMPLETELY WRONG! It may be true that many people may not use it, but I suspect millions of people will buy it!

If you think that selling a $7-$9 drinking straw is a tough sell think again! In fact, there are other folding straw designs on the market that sell for $30 or more!… Check out this Kickstarter program that sold over 80,000 units of another folding straw at $20-30 a piece!

“The Last Straw folding reusable drinking straw will be a massive marketing statement for your clients. It will say to the world that they are an eco-friendly, trend-setting company. What brand wouldn’t want to be seen like this?”

What is a folding reusable drinking straw?

Unless you have been living under a rock the past 6 months, you have seen in the news from around the world that all types of 1 time use plastics are being banned. In fact major cities including Seattle and Vancouver have outlawed plastic drinking straws, making their use an illegal offence!

Green eco bags have been around for a while now but the ban on over 1 billion per year plastic straws caught many in the promo world unawares. However, trend setter Promo Motive caught the idea early and came out with the Last Straw. The Last Straw is designed to be logo friendly!

Where Did This Idea Come From?

The idea for the reusable folding drinking straw came about as a result of a video captured by environmentalists and scientists operating out of Costa Rica in late 2017.

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.

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.

The $27 Billion dollar Promotional Products industry seizes upon the idea!
