Why this business was started
This business started as a class project, I would receive course credit for creating some type of eCommerce store. I wanted the store to have a positive impact on the world so I chose to help clean up the ocean by selling reusable straws. I started the store as a free + shipping campaign, we sold around 2000 straws in the first 4 days at a cheaper price than any other straw seller on the internet. Since then we have moved into traditional sells.
The reason of selling this business
As a new college graduate I do not believe my future is in eCommerce stores, so I have decided to sell off all of my eCommerce assets and will be moving to a new city where I have accepted a full time job offer.

How to grow this business
To grow the store in the next five years I would add more products to the lineup other than reusable straws...such as water bottles, canvas bags and shirts. On top of that I would add a social mission, something similar to what 4ocean.com does.
Skills to have
To manage this store successfully I think it is important to have knowledge of the plastic crisis that our world is facing and being able to convey that message through our various social media channels.
