We Do Things Differently
At ToMA, we’ve spent years living among the wonders of the Pacific Northwest, hiking the Pacific Crest Trail, kayaking the waterways of the Pacific Northwest, snowboarding Mt. Hood, and surfing the waves of Short Sands. We aim to keep these cherished places pristine by creating practical and affordable alternatives to plastic for families and businesses.
Our co-founder, Michael Angiletta, owns a popular whiskey bar on the coast of Oregon called Blaylock’s Whiskey Bar, known for its expansive whisky collection and award-winning craft cocktails. Already awarded the Best New Business in Oregon by Mainstreet America, Michael was never one to rest on his laurels. He wanted to elevate the experience further, make it even better than it already was so he began offering cocktails with beautiful glass straws. The straws were so popular, patrons would insist on buying them. Michael was so enthused by the ecstatic response of his customers, he made it his mission to share these beautiful straws for other restaurants and bar patrons to enjoy.
