Our Scouts Tried Biodegradable Straws—Here’s What They Thought
By Claire Do
In 2019, more than 500 million plastic straws were used each day in the United States. (Yikes, we know.) Plastic straws are one of the most commonly used—and easily replaceable—plastics. They’re also often ingested by aquatic wildlife because they’re not biodegradable.

Taking its name from a mix of the words “eco-friendly” and “status-quo,” trailblazer and female founder Marina Tran-Vu came up with this idea in hopes of making the world a better place. EQUO’s mission statement mimics Brightly’s inclusive ethos: “Every little action helps.”
