Here’s the eleventh and last installment in our Best of 2019 Series.
Plastic has become an ubiquitous part of our daily life. Almost every time we eat outside, our soda, milk tea, or smoothie comes with a straw. In fact, in 2015, Philippines became the world’s 3rd largest contributor to ocean plastic waste.
Ideated in 2016, Sip PH was 3 college students’ clever solution to curb plastic pollution. Founder Pocholo Espina and his partners saw the problem and repercussions of single-use plastic—specifically plastic straws. With a more environmentally friendly substitute like Sip’s metal straws, we can do our part in reducing plastic waste and saving planet Earth. What began as a small business in Ateneo Trade grew into a full-blown environmental enterprise that sells through bazaars, partner organizations, online retailers, and popular juice bars such as Serenitea and Jamba Juice.
But plastic straw is just one part of the equation. To make eating out a lot more eco-friendly, Pocholo also came up with reusable utensils in addition to the straws. Sip’s on-the-go “burrito wrap” contains chopsticks, spoon, fork, and knife made of sustainably grown bamboo.
