1 billion plastic, petroleum-based, non-biodegradable straws are used every day worldwide.
These bamboo drinking straws are a fun and eco-friendly alternative to plastic that can be used with any beverage.
The straws are made from real whole bamboo stalks – nothing re-compressed or processed.
They are washable and reusable. Use a jar of warm water with soap to shake them clean, or clean with a pipe cleaner.
A purchase of bamboo straws is a vote for sustainable materials. The straws come packaged in a bag that is made from plants that is compostable in commercial facilities, with a tag made from paper.
Each straw is 10 inches in length.
The straws can last for years and years when properly cared for.
And they look portable too! Carry one in your car, purse, or bag!
