Help eliminate the millions of plastic straws used every day with this pack of six reusable straws made from sustainable, organically grown bamboo. Ideal for cold summer drinks, fruit smoothies and dinner party cocktails. Finished with food safe certified organic oil.
Please note: Because the straws are made from natural bamboo, each one will need washing before first use. If there is any pith on the inside of a straw, it can be brushed out and then washed. Pith is totally natural and edible so should not cause concern. Comes complete with stainless steel cleaning brush with sisal bristles.
Responsibly made in China where there are safe working conditions and fair labour practices. Producer Bambu is also B Corp certified which means the company’s business model and entire operations are evaluated to see how they impact their workers, community and environment. In short, B Corporation is to business what Fairtrade certification is to food.
Hand wash in warm soapy water using brush provided. Not recommended for microwave.
Certified organic by the USDA (United States Department of Agriculture).
Straw length approximately 14.5cm. Due to the natural element of this product, each straw can be a slightly different thickness and can vary from 7mm to 12mm diameter.
Made from organic bamboo certified by the USDA (US Department of Agriculture). Sources are audited by IMO Switzerland, an international agency for inspection, certification and quality assurance of eco-friendly products.
All Bambu's certified organic products are hand sanded and finished using food-safe organic oils. They are tested and approved to be pesticide free and chemical free which means they are safer to use. The bamboo grows and is harvested from wild groves rather than from farmed plantations and the fact that there are no fertilisers or pesticides also protects the health of farmers who work there.
Miracle plant bamboo is the fastest growing plant in the world, and is an endlessly renewable resource - growing new shoots from its root system after being harvested. It thrives naturally without using any pesticides or fertilisers, takes in greenhouse gasses and produces 35% more oxygen than the equivalent trees.
Bambu is an eco friendly home goods company, designing, producing and marketing homewares made from renewable materials.
Founders Jeff and Rachel built their business around a mission to reduce plastic waste by providing people with natural alternatives. The couple come from Portland in Oregon, US - a place that prides itself on local, home grown, eco-friendly values. They relocated to China and took these values with them. Because they live and work in Shanghai most of the year, Jeff and Rachel can work directly with their teams on the ground in China - local woodworkers, weavers and stitchers - to hand craft every item.
Bambu has recently achieved B Corp Certification. This is the only certification that measures a company’s entire social and environmental performance. The B Impact Assessment evaluates how a company’s operations and business model impact their workers, community, environment, and customers. From the supply chain and input materials to the charitable giving and employee benefits, B Corp Certification proves a business is meeting the highest standards of verified performance.
