Joseph Friedman

Biography

Joseph Friedman was born October 9, 1900. His jobs before making the bendy straw were real estate and optometry. Joseph Friedman got inspired to make the bendy straw while watching his daughter struggle to drink a milkshake with a paper straw. Bendy straws make drinking beverages easier for me. Joseph Friedman died June 21, 1982.

Changes

If I could remake the bendy straw I would make it a reusable and portable bendy straw. With my new invention people wouldn’t have to waste bendy straws anymore.

Quote

I know that the flexible drinking straw was a success because according to inventor.com: “In 1906, Joseph Friedman started the Flexstraw Company to further market his product”.
