Simply Straws is in search of a Inside Sales Representative to join the team in Costa Mesa, CA. 



ABOUT SIMPLY STRAWS//
A California crafted, family founded, award winning B Corporation reusable glass drinking straw company, based in Costa Mesa, CA.

We are an alternative to the common plastic straw. We have been hand crafting glass straws since 2012 in beautiful Costa Mesa, CA. Our products are reusable, sustainable, durable, biodegradable and handmade with intention in California. We use non-toxic colored dyes, bpa free materials, fair-trade organic hemp, flax, and cotton straw sleeves, among other earth conscious materials.

As an award winning B Corporation and family founded business, it is our mission to offset the plastic straw epidemic by educating and exciting our communities about the raw effects of plastic straws and how to adversely change the trajectory (mindset) by simply saying NO to plastic and YES to glass. #stopsucking (Adrian Grenier's campaign with his NPO Lonely Whale, whom we have a deep relationship with).

We are passionately committed to building a brighter future for everyone by leaving the world a better place, sip by sip, and we’d like you to join us on this journey. Your support will counteract over 30,000 disposable plastic straws in your lifetime!  We are on the brink of hyper growth and are looking for a very motivated and committed manager.
