These 10″ bamboo drinking straws are grown organically and artisan-made in Northeast India exclusively for Clean Planetware. Bamboo straws are traditionally used in this hilly part of India to consume beer. You will notice the difference between these fine hand-made straws and other lower-priced machine-made brands of straws. The artisans are treated like family and paid fair wages.
1 billion plastic, petroleum-based, non-biodegradable straws are used everyday 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. Each straw is 10 inches in length. The straws can last for years when properly cared for.
Sold in packs of 6 with one straw cleaner or 12 with two straw cleaners, packed into a reusable cotton pouch.
