Our Cause

This Straw Gives Water.

1 in 9 people worldwide do not have access to safe water.
More people own a mobile phone than a toilet.
Every two minutes a child dies from a water and sanitation-related disease.


The Short Straw was created to better the planet and everyone on it. We believe water is a powerful thing. It can enable economic prosperity, improve health, unlock education and so much more. However, millions of people around the world lack access to this basic need.

We have partnered with Water.org to be able provide thousands of people with access to safe water every year.

1 Straw = One Person Access to Safe Water for 3 Years

Water.org is an international nonprofit organisation that has positively transformed millions of lives around the world with access to safe water and sanitation. They empower families through access to affordable financing and expert resources to make household water and toilet solutions a reality.
