Looking for a fun alternative alternative to single use straws? Try these reusable and biodegradable organic bamboo straws. We promise you will turn heads! They are natural, durable and direct from nature.
Did you know that one billion disposable plastic straws are used and discarded every day? Used for an average of 20 minutes and then discarded, taking 500 years to degrade. It's time to say bye bye to petroleum plastic straws.
These bamboo straws are handmade in Bali, Indonesia. Every straw is unique in its colour and diameter as they are made from one single stem of bamboo.
Odourless and tasteless these straws can be used by adults and children.
- Set includes twelve bamboo straws and straw brush in a cotton drawstring bag.
- Biodegradable and reusable
- Suitable for hot or cold drinks
- Hand washing in warm soapy water is recommended although straws can go in the dishwasher
Size: approx. 22cm long, this is a natural product so diameter varies between 0.6 and 1cm - you will receive varying diameters in a pack
Note: This is a very natural product and it does need washing before first use. If there is any pith on the inside of a straw, it can be brushed out and then washed. It is natural and edible so of no concern.
- Wet bristles of straw brush before use for best cleaning results
- Do not use bleach or cleaners containing chlorine or abrasives
- Leave to dry completely
- Store in a dry, ventilated place
When the straws reach the end of their life they can be composted, decomposing in 3-4 months, and can be used as plant fertiliser. They can also be used as plant supports, paint stirrers and many words of recycled/upcycled art!
A miracle plant, bamboo is the fastest growing plant in the world and is an endlessly renewable resource, growing new shoots from its root system after being harvested. It thrives naturally without using any pesticides or fertilisers, takes in greenhouse gasses and produces 35% more oxygen than the equivalent trees.
