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. To Clean: use a jar of warm water with soap to shake them clean, or clean with a straw cleaner. Each straw is 10 inches in length. The straws can last for years and years when properly cared for."
From Brush With Bamboo: Our bamboo drinking straws are grown organically and artisan-made in Northeast India exclusively for Brush with Bamboo. 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% Biobased.
