ForEVA Straws, The Straws That Last Forever. My Story.

I knew that this business was going to work when my experience was too coincidental, and it seemed to be a sign from my late grandmother, choosing the name ForEva Straws. You see, it is a ForEVA Straw and not Forever Straws. My late grandmother’s name was Eva Johnson and she raised me from birth. She was my best friend, my sister, my pillar of strength, my everything.
