Our bamboo drinking straws are grown organically and artisan-made in Northeast India exclusively for Indisutras. Bamboo straws are traditionally used in this hilly part of India to consume beer. You will notice the difference between our fine hand-made straws and other lower-priced machine-made brands of straws. Our artisans are treated like family and paid fair wages. All of our straws are USDA Certified 100% Bio-based.
1 billion plastic, petroleum-based, non-biodegradable straws are used every day worldwide. Our 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 and years when properly cared for.
Our drinking straw cleaners are made from Sisal Fiber and steel – a completely plastic-free alternative to conventional nylon straw cleaning brushes.
After the Sisal Fibers become wet, the fibers become more flexible, allowing them to be used for cleaning drinking straws of virtually any diameter.
Long-lasting and durable, these Sisal Fiber Drinking Straw Cleaners will be a great addition to your zero-waste lifestyle toolkit.
The agave plant is so abundant in the south of India that inhabitants of this area use it for virtually everything from food to clothing to rope. Our straw cleaners are made responsibly in India using sustainable harvesting methods.
