Plastic straws are identified as one of the ‘big 4’ of plastic items found in beach clean ups, straws are used for a split moment in time, possibly for as little as 20 minutes, but will remain on earth with potentially devastating effects, forever. So why not switch to a reusable Bamboo Straw & when you feel your straw has come to the end of its life it can be popped into your compost bin as they are completely biodegradable.
Bamboo is the fastest growing wood in the world, able to grow as much as four feet in one day. This make it one of the world’s most renewable materials. Bamboo is naturally antibacterial too.
With good care a bamboo straw will last you a long time maybe even a lifetime. When cleaning it is advisable to boil in water & add a little white vinegar then rinse & dry for the best results.
