Our bamboo straw set includes six straws and a cleaning brush. The perfect sustainable alternative to single use plastic and paper straws.
ORIGINS OF OUR BAMBOO STRAWS
Our bamboo straws are ethically manufactured in Vietnam. Our supplier is proud to be creating local jobs and to be running a sustainable production. They describe their workers as being like family and that everyone is happy to help each other.
To make our straws the stem of the bamboo plant is cut into pieces. This stem is hollow but strong so it is ideal as a drinking straw. The ends and interior are then smoothed to create a perfect drinking straw whilst the base of the bamboo is left in the ground to regrow sustainably.
LOOKING AFTER YOUR BAMBOO STRAW SET
Use warm soapy water and the cleaning brush to clean your straw after use but do not leave it soaking in water as this could cause the bamboo to deform. They are not suitable for putting in the dishwasher.
Each straw usually lasts from 6 months to a year and with proper care, they can last for several more years. However, when they do reach the end of their life just pop them in your home compost to biodegrade naturally.
Each Bamboo straw is unique but a typical straw will be 18 cm length with a 6mm inner diameter.
