how it works

we send you our reusable straws, cleaners and/or bags.

you don’t pay for them upfront.

display them somewhere pretty.

your customers donate if they want one.

when you need more stock, that’s when you pass donations back to us.

we use donations to help fund cleanup projects and cool things like this

after almost a year of testing our concept in a number of venues across perth… we have two options for you.


 


option 1: ‘sEMI NAKED’ I just want to offer reusable straws as an option, but still support beach/ ocean clean ups

Not ready to strip fully naked just yet? No worries!. You are still passing on 100% of the profits to One Straw, and helping us fund clean up projects around Perth.

How OPTION 1 works

So with option 1, you are committing to pass on all profits back to One Straw. You bloody legend!

  • Create two buttons on your POS system, one for “One Straw/ straw bag”, the other for a “straw cleaner”.

  • We’ll send you straws upfront for free, and we cover delivery*. And, we’ll email you an invoice with two week terms. This will give you enough time to sell through the stock before passing on donations.

  • You charge a $2 donation for a straw/ $1 donation for a straw cleaner/ $2 donation for a straw bag

  • We ask for $1.80 +GST back per straw/ $1.80+ GST back per straw bag, and $0.90+GST per straw cleaner.

    Tips to boost sales

  • To seriously boost donations, locate the pot/ jar of straws next to the POS area, ensuring it’s visible to customers. We can supply you with a small sign explaining the cause and get staff excited. Sales increase massively when the staff are educated & excited about the concept. This is obvious, but if customers know their money is going towards transparent and tangible clean up projects… you’ll have very little resistance.

  • When a customer purchases an item that typically requires a straw… consider getting staff to automatically ask customers if they’d like a reusable straw for a $2 donation. This could be done through your POS as a ‘ prompt’ so staff remember.


ORDERING & Delivery

Straws will most likely be sent via Auspost, although the first few deliveries will probably be in person

For free delivery the min order is 100 units. This can be made up of a combination of straws/ bags/ cleaners.


Payment

When we send you stock, we will also send you an invoice. This invoice needs to be settled, before or at the time of requesting new stock.

Handing out straws upfront for free means we are need to be on top of donations handed back 👮‍♀️ We reserve the right to hold back deliveries as a result of late payment. The quicker we receive donations, the quicker we can grow this awesome movement.

option 2: GO NAKEd - I want to stop using all single-use straws, and only offer reusable 🐢

You are a venue looking to completely banish any kind of single use straw… if a customer wants a straw, they can grab a One Straw for a $1 donation, and the money goes to a good cause. You are passing 100% of the profits collected, onto One Straw..

You’ll also save the cost of paper or plastic straws.

How OPTION 2 works

So with option 2, you are committing to donate all profits back to One Straw.

  • Create two buttons on your POS system, one for “straw/ straw bag”, the other for a “straw cleaner”.

  • We’ll send you straws upfront for free, and we cover delivery*. Then, we’ll email you an invoice which needs to be settled at the time of making a new order or within 30 days, whichever is sooner. This will give you enough time to sell through the stock before passing on donations.

      • We ask for $0.90+GST back per straw, $0.90+GST back per bag and $0.90+GST per straw cleaner.

TIPS TO BOOST SALES

  • For the most effective response, locate the straws next to the POS, with signage clearly visible. When a customer buys an item that requires a straw, consider getting staff to ask each customer if they’d like to donate and get a reusable straw, as you are now straw free. When people understand the money is going to a good cause, you’ll have very little friction.

  • Own being naked - consider notifying customers upfront via your menus, or social media, that you are now naked. Lot One in Hillary’s do this really well, see below!
