We love theotherstraw's 100% organic, natural and handcrafted bamboo straws, made in Northern Vietnam. These one's are their Shortie Straws, and they're great for cocktails or kids and their babycinos, juices and milkshakes.
Reduce your waste with reusable straws that are aligned with your values, eco-friendly, sustainable and ethically sourced.
The best? theotherstraw work alongside local groups and ethnic minorities to design, grow and harvest their bamboo straws, ensuring that the farming and manufacturing is sustainable and provides a stable income for locals. We love them.
Made by Australian company, theotherstraw, in Northern Vietnam. theotherstraw was founded in response to one of the world's biggest challenges: plastic pollution. They are a Melbourne-based sustainable enterprise which works with producers from ethnic minority groups in Northern Vietnam to make their products, ensuring their producers receive a prosperous and fair wage with healthy working conditions. They keep their carbon footprint small through resource recycling and energy conservation, and a portion of their profits goes towards supporting projects that protect the world's oceans and marine life. We love theotherstraw.
The straw is 10cm long and 7mm in diameter - great for cocktails, and for kids' juices, milkshakes, babycinos and more.
