From the MolaBox designers – 

Plastic and takeout waste problem

Straws are just 2% of the 9 million tons of plastic waste that hit the waters every year. It’s time to reduce other wastes as well! Therefore, we have launched this environmental Kickstarter campaign to tackle the plastic takeout waste problem. In 2015, Americans created 15 million tons of plastic containers and packaging waste (Source: EPA). And more than 100 million pieces of plastic utensils every day (Source: National Geographic).
