In a recent interview with ABC7 News, Minalex praises the positive impact aluminum straws are making on the environment today. Their collaboration with Sea-Straw owners, Elizabeth Thorn and William Marshall, has brought attention to the plastic straw crisis that is threatening our future. In efforts of changing the way we sip, Minalex proudly extrudes 50,000 aluminum straws every month, and the number of extrusions will continue to climb as more people become aware.
Jim Casey, President of Minalex, explains the inspiration behind every aluminum extruded straw, “It’s great to be able to carry this business and see something that is touching so many people. We manufacture parts for planes and the military, but creating an eco-friendly straw that makes a difference is something everybody can relate to.”
