What is a by-product: 

Our farmers harvest grains every year as usual. Our straws are the leftovers of the harvest: the rye stalks. Mister RYE is a by-product.

Where are the straws manufactured?

Mister RYE is manufactured in our workshop based in Adelaide.

Where are the packaging manufactured?

Mister RYE only works with local resources and manpower. Our packaging are made in Adelaide using certified recycled cardboard that is 100% biodegradable.

Do you ship world-wide?

Mister RYE is only available in Australia as our main mission is to use local resources to fight the 10 million straws used every day in Australia. We are fighting other imported alternatives for their carbon impact. It doesn’t make sense to ship Mister RYE overseas.

What happens if we don’t hit our fundraising target?

It is an “all or nothing” campaign which means if we don’t hit our target, we won’t be able to launch the project and you will get your money back. So, we have to smash our target!

What’s to stop us running away overseas with all your money?

Marion and Alexis have invested both their own savings for the project. They also moved to the other side of the planet to launch it, leaving family, friends and comfort zone behind them. They could give another 20,000 reasons to not disappear overseas πŸ™‚

Thank you & New Announcement:

Firstly, thank you so much to our latest backers! Emma, Margie, Barbara, Geoff, Alison, kenneth, Stephanie, Jady, Bianca, Dorian, Vanessa, Talieta, Gabriella, Margaux and Wendy.

Announcement: Mister RYE changing its business strategy and we have decided to stop the campaign earlier than expected. There are a few good reasons for this:

- Our main target is businesses 
- Businesses don’t usually use crowdfunding, ​therefore a direct sales model is needed
- We want to pivot as soon as possible to better target businesses and events
- We have found ways to improve our current processes and reduce our costs to be more competitive in the market
- More details are explained in this video,  β€‹click here: https://www.facebook.com/misterrye/videos/421662208504919/

We are very grateful for all of you who have pledged or pre-ordered 15,000 straws, as this is a huge help to support our launch. All pre-orders will be delivered on time, as planned at the end of January. Given our campaign was an 'all or nothing campaign', we will need you to confirm via return email confirmation that you are happy to continue with your order and therefore be charged. 

If you feel disappointed by this decision, β€‹and would like to cancel your pledge, we understand and would appreciate if you can also confirm your order cancellation by return email. 

If you would like to know more about our new strategy, we are here to answer all your questions - kindly email us at hello@misterrye.com

The campaign will stop in 48hrs, and we are looking forward to executing our new strategy to get our initial production started! 

Thanks to all our backers and supporters, you have all played an important role in the early stage of our journey. 

Have a beautiful day!

Marion & Alexis

Update #2:

πŸ’š Thank you to our recent backers Jill Storey, Sue, Big Heart Bamboo, Stéphanie, Emma Webster, Neil, Ethan, Elodie, Steph, Jane Clifton-Bassett, Di Thompson, Adelina, Julia, Larissa πŸ’š

11,000 straws have been pre-ordered through our campaign so far, which is great but not enough for us to start the production. We have 19 days left and it's an all-or-nothing campaign!

WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT MORE THAN EVER! πŸ₯€ GET INVOLVED IN THE PLASTIC CRISIS AND HELP US REMOVE ALL PLASTIC STRAWS FROM AUSTRALIA! πŸ‡¦πŸ‡Ί

Big thank you to Planet Ark and Journalist Liam for this great article on Mister RYE! πŸ“°

"These ‘rye-cyclable’ straws are reusable, completely biodegradable in home composting systems and can even be put through the dishwasher."


October 31, 2019

Update #1:

Our solution to eliminate the 10 million plastic straws used every day in Australia has launched 7 days ago. A very big thanks to the 41 first persons trusting us in leading that change and all the ones who shared our project! 

Thank you to Mercy, Sash, Sharon, Brigitte, Leila, Brittany, Jody, Jo, Chris, Caleb, Tullio, Laura, Rishendly, Oli Madgett, Brigitte and Laurent, Sherrie, Alexandre, Jo, Laurent-Edouard, Solenne, Clemence, Rodney Love, Violet, Dewaele, Nico Cardoni, Mercier, Laure, Keryn, Alice, Emmy-clare, Aurore, Anonymous, Duc Ha Duong, Kylie, Darren, Matthew Moate, Phillipa, Laurence, Maud and Rejane for your two pledges. 

 

More than a drinking straw, Mister RYE represents the fight for the environment, supports our local economy and provides a real solution to reduce our impact.

Being fully transparent with you, Australia has more than 90,000 hospitality venues and about 3M parents looking for alternative to plastic. At the moment Mister RYE is very far away from launching its initial production as remember, it’s an all or nothing campaign, if we don’t reach our objective, we won’t be able to produce our first straws. 


25 days left and we need YOUR HELP and YOUR SUPPORT to meet our full objective! A few hundred venues and people supporting this project would allow us to get Mister RYE off the ground. More than that, it would support a positive solution to the climate change and plastic crisis that is concerning all of us. How amazing would that be?! Remember every little helps. 

Thank you for supporting this project and feel free to share our campaign! Let’s start some actions all together!

One comment on “Mister RYE: Organic rye drinking straws made in Australia.

E  Emma Webster

Hi Marion & Alexis,
Thanks so much for coming to do your talk with us at Flinders yesterday! Sorry for waffling on so much, especially at the end :-p

I really hope you succeed, this is so incredibly needed!! I’ll likely send a longer message via your website, I just wanted to say thank you, & I hope everything goes wonderfully with the campaign 😊

Wishing you both all the best with everything 🌹 Emma.
