Rice babies in Hongcheon, South Korea


We are NOT associated with any metal/plastic straw company. However, it might be worth knowing that our good friend Iiparam in Korea does make her own straws naturally, out of reeds that grow wild near her house. If there are problems with your metal and recycled plastic straws, you can always go into the field and make your own (see the film below).

Who are we then, if not a straw factory?

We are an award-winning team who began a project in 2011 to produce films and workshops about cultivating better relationships with the earth and growing food together with nature. Unfortunately, these days we get many angry emails aimed at some straw company. If you are one of those, you seem to have made it to the wrong website!

Before you go however, please enjoy watching our latest calm and peaceful film, Food, Earth, Happiness, which we have worked to make available for free. We hope it brightens your day.

For questions regarding the distribution, screenings, workshops, writings, or any other general media inquiries regarding the Final Straw: Food, Earth, Happiness documentary project, please contact:
