Our STRAWs and stirrers are made from natural plant stems (wheat) and are 100% biodegradable, which means they will not stay in landfills, polluting our land or oceans. They are similar in feel and function to the plastic straws we are all used to, but without the harmful imprint of our earth.
Unlike paper straws, straws are made from a renewable source, do not contain gluten and best of all, they do not get wet with prolonged use!
With so many options for sustainable products, how do you know which ones are right for you? We have created this table to present the best reasons for using wheat straws and stirrers, and how they differ from other alternatives:
We buy our wheat from small local producers in Dobrich and Gabrovo. In this way we offer additional income for their harvest. We manually select the highest quality stems for our straws and then cut them to the length most suitable for most drinks - about 20 cm.
No two straws are exactly alike due to the natural deviations in the diameter of the wheat. Our straws then go through a cleaning process to remove any dirt particles or even insects.
No chemicals, coatings or additives are added during the manufacturing process. They are carefully checked for quality and then packed by hand in our cardboard boxes.
