AS FEATURED ON
Nice to meet CHEW
CHEW is the world’s first Pocketable, Chewable, Reusable straw that comes with a recycled plastic case to Spin-Dry your straw for multiple uses through the day. Whew that’s a mouthful.
CHEW is a redesign on reusable straws, planning for the whole journey rather than just the moment you drink. You should be able to enjoy your drink to the fullest, which is why we wanted to keep sipping the drink of your choice effortless and enjoyable while still letting you be eco-friendly.
Reusable Straws... Kind of Suck...
You always end up having to adjust to their straws rather than the other way around.
After using and washing your straw, you are left with a moist and dark inner straw wall to sustain a little microbe farm.
And where does all this leftover water go? Into whatever you store your straw in.
Each reposition or sip becomes a painful reminder of the presence of your reusable straw.
Too Long to Pocket
Reusable straws are always too long to comfortably carry around.
CHEW is here for you
TAKE IT FOR A WHIRL
CHEW allows you to dry your reusable straw by taking it out for a spin.
If you hate moisture in closed cases or just the idea of moist straws freak you out, don't worry. You can spin that residual water out of your case. Although once you spin we doubt you will want to stop.
CHEW TO YOUR HEART'S CONTENT
Finally, someone did it! A chewable, reusable straw.
Chew on food grade silicone tips inspired by nature and classic geometric elements
Including one Kickstarter exclusive design based on the waves of the sea.
Pocket your straw
Designed to be portable, breaking CHEW into two allows you to slip it into any pocket.
CHEW's case even aids you in easy assembly with a simple click.
For those still transitioning into an eco-friendly lifestyle, CHEW's case includes a small tip for you to cut a slit in the cover of your drink.
Struggle no more against that final barrier to your sweet drink as this simple cut allows your reusable straw to slide smoothly into your cup.
How do you use CHEW
Minor cleaning on the go
To clean your straw
Major cleaning at home
We have also included a small brush in the whole package so you can satisfy your OCD in cleaning the case thoroughly at home. Oh that feeling.
Process and Inspiration
We went through many, many rounds of ideation, prototyping and variations. After considering, what would be the simplest wildest way to dry a straw, we arrived at a new spin on things. Taking this as a starting point we designed a straw and case which would offer a fun way to jump onto using reusable straws.
The money from the campaign will be used to start up manufacturing cost for CHEW. After which we hope to reach more people. By backing us, you get to be a part of the change that is about to come!
Meet the Team
We are a team of 3 Singapore based industrial designers. We believe that being eco-friendly is easy, if you are given the right tools. By injecting a little fun and insanity into everyday problems, we can find the solution to save the world in our own little ways.
The three of us have always considered buying reusable straws, but never quite found one that met our needs. Along with many major companies choosing to ban reusable straws, we decided it was time to do something about it. Thus, CHEW was born!

Risks and challenges
Risks and Challenges
At this stage we are in conversation with several manufacturers to find the right one to produce CHEW.
Due to tooling costs, The start up cost to manufacture is also fairly high.
Do not worry though as once we get successfully funded, we will set up a trip to the factory of our manufacturers and discussing in detail how to manufacture Chew.
We will also personally do Quality Checks before we ship out the products to you. We do not want the case where you have to wait for us to ship you another Chew. It saves you and us time.
There are also some aspects of the CHEW which we are still refining.
And to be very honest with you, there will be changes, but these changes will be to give you the best CHEW experience.
