Founded in summer of 2015, Straw Wars Philippines aims to raise awareness on the effects of single-use plastics to human health and the environment, reduce its use in the business industry, and create a network of communities and businesses committed to reduce plastic consumption.

The Straw Wars Philippines team is composed of different active student leaders of Dumaguete City, united by their passion and love for the environment. Straw Wars Philippines is committed to serve the communities and impact society through conservation and protection of the environment.
