Drink and Promote Responsibly with Reusable Straws


The Problem With Plastic Straws

Straws are a pretty small piece of trash, right? But when they come in every iced coffee, soda, cocktail and water glass in America, it really adds up fast. In fact, according to market research reported by GetGreenNow, we use 390 million straws in the U.S. every day. That’s enough to circle the Earth twice if you put them end-to-end. To add to the problem, most disposable straws are made of type 5 plastic. This plastic, called polypropylene, can be recycled, but it isn’t accepted by most standard curbside programs. So, naturally (or perhaps unnaturally) they end up in our trash cans, landfills and oceans.

Why Now?

Needless to say, this is not a new problem. Americans have been filling landfills with plastic straws for years. So why are so many businesses banning them? In an interview with Business Insider, CEO of Plastic Pollution Coalition Dianna Cohen says that straws are a good place to start. Since they’re designed to be used for such a short amount of time and then tossed, it’s not too difficult to imagine a world without them. “We look at straws as one of the gateway issues to help people start thinking about the global plastic pollution problem.”

And she’s not wrong. As consumers and businesses become increasingly aware of this problem, people are taking action. Maybe the most notable instance is Starbucks. You may not have seen it in action yet, but the company has announced that their goal is to phase out disposable straws by 2020, replacing them with straw-less lids for their iced drinks. What’s their estimate on the impact? According to a statement on their website, they believe that the change will eliminate more than a billion plastic straws per year. Other companies who have announced their intentions to move away from plastic straws include Hyatt, Hilton, American Airlines and Marriott.

Ditching disposable straws is a great move for the environment, but not everyone is happy about the change. Lots of people just enjoy using straws. Sometimes drinking an iced coffee just isn’t the same without it. And, much more importantly, many people with disabilities rely on using straws every day.

Reusable Straws as Promotional Products

Fortunately, there are ways to continue branding drinks without polluting our oceans. Providing your customers with reusable straws can be a very useful and environmentally friendly move. It’s the perfect way to help them enjoy their drinks the way they always have without contributing to plastic waste. And it’s always a good idea for your brand to stay on top of noteworthy trends.

If you’re gearing up for a trade show or just looking for promotional giveaways, many of our straws come in convenient carrying cases which feature your logo or message. Purchasing drinks on the go is a regular habit for most of us. Because it’s so common, putting your brand on reusable straws is an awesome opportunity to increase your company’s visibility.

If you own a restaurant or bar, switching over to reusable straws is a great way to make eco-friendly choices in the new year. With products like metal straws that feature your logo, there’s even the added benefit of giving your cocktails and drinks a sleek and sophisticated look. It’s worth noting that for some people, like those with disabilities or allergies to certain materials, single use plastic straws may still be the best option. It’s always a good idea to keep some on hand so your restaurant can provide them when requested.

6 Tips for Newly Engaged Couple


You just got engaged! Let us be the first to congratulate you and your future spouse! Now, you are scouring the internet to try to figure out what you are supposed to do next.

Here are our top 6 tips that will help you successfully navigate this exciting time in your life. We are experts in the entire engagement process – helping our customers even after their proposal is over.



Wait until you have personally told everyone close to you and your fiancé before you go showing off your new ring to your entire social following. We suggest making calls in the following order: 1) both of your parents, 2) any siblings either of you may have, 3) grandparents and best friends, and 4) any of your other close friends that you feel should hear about it straight from you. After that, we give you permission to post your engagement ring selfie on Instagram.

Be prepared for plenty of questions during the phone calls after you’re engaged. Here are some tips on how to handle them. 

  • Question: When is the wedding?!
    Possible answer: We’re thinking of a summer wedding or We want to wait a year to get all of our affairs in order.
  • Question: How did he/she ask?!
    Possible answer: You’re going to want to take this opportunity to fine tune your story – you’ll be telling it many times. Try to make it as sappy and succinct as you can.



If your fiancé proposed with a Gunderson’s engagement ring, we are sure that it is worth getting insured. You do not want one of your biggest – and more important – purchases to be uninsured. You can add it to your current homeowner’s or renter’s insurance. Don’t have insurance? Now is the time to take that step.



Get an idea of the size of your wedding by making a first draft of the guest list. Next, discuss and set your budget. These two factors are the foundation and determine the type of wedding you choose to have. We suggest allocating 48% of your budget to your reception, 12% to the photographer, 10% to entertainment,10% to the rings, 8% to flowers, 2% to gifts, 2% to invitations, 3% to the ceremony, 3% to the dress/tux,  and 2% to transportation.



We know you’re excited that you’re engaged and want to share your joy with all of your friends and followers. But holding back on how much you post about your wedding plans can actually make your life easier. It will reduce the unsolicited advice, number of questions, hurt feelings and self-invited guests.



  • Gunderson’s Bridal Package: Our extensive bridal package includes a free wedding planner with tips to every detail that goes into planning your idyllic wedding.
  • Websites and applications: For the bride that doesn’t know where to begin, The Knot and Wedding Wire can be invaluable resources. You can find the perfect venue, dress, photographers, and so much more.



With all of that said, make time to date each other and keep the romance alive. Set aside date nights where you focus only on each other and not the wedding. Wedding planning can be very stressful. Take a deep breath and remember that the commitment is much more important than the wedding. This is a time to build your relationship up — not let the stress tear it down.

Most of all, don’t forget to have fun! It’s easy to get caught up in the hustle and bustle of wedding planning after you become engaged. But keep in mind that this is a magical time in your relationship. So take the time to pause and enjoy it along the way.
