Did you know that more than 1 billion plastic, petroleum-based, non-biodegradable straws are used every day worldwide? They don’t break down in landfill and if they end up in our waters they are extremely destructive to marine life.
Our bamboo drinking straws are a completely natural, sustainable and eco-friendly alternative to metal and plastic.
Our standard straw is ideal for juices, soft drinks, and cocktails. We also have a straw perfect for smoothies and shakes! – Check it out here.
They are made from mature whole bamboo stalks – sourced from Palawan, Philippines. They are handmade and ethically sourced from local farmers.
Purchasing any of our products directly helps initiatives and charities and is a vote for sustainable materials, supporting an eco-friendly alternative.

We focus on ethical products that have minimal impact on the environment and that are also good for us.

Bamboo is one of the most sustainable plants in the world. Did you know that once bamboo starts actively growing, it needs no further irrigation? And depending on the species, it can grow up to 1m per day. How amazing is that?!
Manufactured in: Palawan, Philippines
Manufacturing Process: Our Bamboo Straws are completely handmade in the Philippines by local artisans without the use of chemicals or heavy machinery. They are sustainably harvested in the areas they are most abundant (from the wild, they are not farmed) without any type of chemicals, pesticides or fertilisers!
We only cut the top of the bamboo stems we want to use, this allows the plant to still grow healthy and strong without affecting the rest of the ecosystems. After they have been cut they are cleaned and soaked in water mixed with salt, neem and baking soda. They stay soaking overnight then dried for one more day under the Philippines sun. Once dry we turn them into straws! They are cut by hand to size and they are not polished as most polishes are not vegan. Our straws are 100% natural and vegan!
Cleaning Instructions: If properly cared for, these bamboo straws can last for years and years. It is recommended to clean your straws with 1-2 drops of an anti-microbial/anti-fungal essential oil of your choice diluted in water (we like to use lemongrass!) When you are out and about we would recommend using our straw cleaner to keep straw clean and ready for the next use right away!
