Bamboo Straws, the best and most sustainable way for drinking your cold drink, smoothy and milkshake.

Bamboo is fast becoming one of the most popular and sought after alternatives to plastic. It can be shaped and made into various forms to provide the same function that plastic does. The resurgence of bamboo products comes with a global shift towards substituting single use plastics for bamboo made items such as bamboo straws, bowls, fast food storage containers, toothbrushes, hairbrushes and many other.

Bamboo is a miraculous natural material that has been used by the natives in countries such as Indonesia and Thailand for centuries. It’s revitalising to see humanity moving towards more sustainable ways of living, but sad to realise how late we have come to adopt these practices. “Rather late than never” as they say.

Entrepreneurs in certain communities in Bali are being sponsored by global initiatives in the wake of supporting the anti-plastic movement. Teenagers are involved in the processes of production and are now able to afford school fees, and together with the general upliftment has spawned extensive business growth and opportunity within these communities.

Are there different types of Bamboo Drinking Straws?

There are 2 types of bamboo straws which are a result of the bamboo and the methods used to produce them. Recompressed and non-recompressed bamboo is one of the methods used. Non-recompressed bamboo is the better quality variant, making it easier to clean and longer lasting than recompressed. The quality of the bamboo will determine the process to be recompressed or not.

Why Bamboo Straws?

Bamboo is quickly proving to be the ultimate natural alternative to plastic thanks to it’s abundance, growing capacity, durability and price point. It’s extremely strong which makes it reusable and can easily be cleaned with water and mild detergents. It does not change the taste of your drink and is safer to carry than glass straws which are known to be hazardous when breaking.

Soft drink, cocktail, milkshake, there is a Bamboo straw for all.

Our straws are available in various sizes. We have a standard diameter and a larger diameter for thicker drinks such as milkshakes and smoothies.

Our bamboo straw sets are bundled with a bamboo husk cleaner in a convenient to carry hessian bag. Perfect for storing in your car, handbag, purse and shirt pocket.

As the demand grows with laws and regulation banning plastic, we will see the emergence of a greater diversity of products using sustainable products. Other natural materials such as coconut shells, hessian, hemp and beeswax are also proving their mark as great alternatives.

Let’s save our oceans and put an end to a wasteful society. Let’s unit against plastic.
