Bamboo straws – the best alternative to conventional plastic ones. Here is why:
Environmentally friendly straws – Bamboo straws are completely biodegradable and do not pollute the environment in any way. Made from natural and organic materials, they are the best environmentally friendly alternative to plastic straws.
Sustainable – Bamboo wood is one of the fastest renewable raw materials on earth. This miracle of nature can grow up to almost one meter per day!
100% Natural and organic – No plastic, no pesticides, made from 100% natural and organic bamboo, grown in Bali. Our straws are produced and sourced by local families, the founder of Non Plastik met in person.
Reusable – Bamboo not only grows faster than any other plant species, its wood is also very hard and durable. That’s why you can use the straws as often and as long as you like. The bamboo straws are resistant and easy to clean with a cleaning brush, so they won’t mold or spoil.
Hygienic – Bamboo wood is very suitable for use as a drinking straw because it is water-repellent, does not splinter and is also antimicrobial. Bamboo has natural antimicrobial properties that kill bacteria, including those that penetrate the surface.
Make a positive impact – With the decision for our bamboo straws, you support the business of local Balinese families.
Why not other materials – Pastic straws are also not biodegradable and cannot be broken down into non-toxic materials. … These simply break into ever-smaller particles, releasing chemicals into the soil, air, and water that are harmful to animals, plants, people, and the environment. We offer you a great sustainable, nature friendly alternative!
As for other eco-friendly solutions we did a research and identified the following issues:
- The paper straws soak too fast.
- The metal straws have a strong aftertaste.
- The glass straws may break.
Therefore we chose the straws made of bamboo.
