MR. ORANGE is a colorful straw that makes drinking juice straight from a fruit as easy as pie! No more knives, squeezing tools, glasses and so on are needed. It works well with all fruits you can squeeze, such as oranges, grapefruits, tangerines, lemons and citrus fruits in general.

You can also use MR. ORANGE as an ordinary straw and help the planet to reduce waste.

 The efficiency is tested also with other citrus fruits.

    

The straw is made by a lightweight anodized aluminum alloy and the lid is made by a durable black rubber.

MR.ORANGE is available in different colors. At the beginning three colors were available. with your support we unlocked the blue and the black. Back us and spread the word to unlock the next one!

PRODUCT CARE

Aluminium reacts with elements in atmosphere. If not used frequently, it is advisable to wash the product before using it in order to avoid possible bad flavours.

Particularly in marine climates, stains may form as a result of oxidation, but they do not compromise the quality of the product.

   

Take a look to MR. ORANGE's challenging timeline. Especially during the testing phase we drank so many oranges that we stayed healthy during the rest of the year. The orange at the bottom represents the status of our founding campaign: support us to drink it by backing us on Kickstarter!

 

Creativity, passion and challenge. Three words describing two engineers and friends in life. Here we are: 

 

Risks and challenges

We have large experience concerning project management in the automotive industry. Of course, developing a product outside our conventional working field is a challenge. Moreover, this is our first Kickstarter Campaign.

One main challenge will be the supply chain management, due to the big difference between a series production with lots per color and the fragmented shipment.

We planned a supply strategy in order to manage as quick as possible the orders of our future customers.
