Eco Friendly Straws


One billion plastic straws are used every day around the world. These straws are used for 20 minutes and will take up to 500 years to degrade. One bamboo straw can prevent many plastic straws from ending up in our oceans. At the end of its life, the bamboo straw can safely be composted in your garden.

Bamboo is fully sustainable, strong, naturally antibacterial and resistant to mould and mildew. Our bamboo Straws are handmade from organic bamboo in rural Vietnam, each straw is unique in its colour and diameter as they are made from one single stem of bamboo. The straws can be washed in the dishwasher and reused many times. There’s also no aftertaste.

Straws are sold as single straws.

Natural Bamboo  

Grown in Vietnam


We advise people to boil their bamboo straws in a little salt and vinegar before using them for the first time. This helps to remove any residue or remove any ‘woody’ aroma.

After each use, rinse your bamboo straw under the tap, you can even put your straws in the dishwasher, but make sure to switch off the hot & dry function and dry them immediately.

Always allow your bamboo straws to dry fully but fear not; they dry very quickly! Store your straws in a well-ventilated place, and never in air-tight containers or jars

Your straw will dry naturally in sunlight turning your straw into a bright shade of golden yellow!
