We love theotherstraw's 100% organic, natural and handcrafted bamboo straws, made in Northern Vietnam.
Reduce your waste with their Original Straw 2-pack Set which comes in a cotton pouch with a natural coconut fibre cleaning brush - the zero waste zero waste utensil! These are straws that are fully 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 straws are 20cm long and 10mm in diameter - perfect for juices, smoothies, kombucha and more. The Cleaning Brush is approximately 20cm long and the Set fits comfortably in the cotton pouch.
Rinse the straws after use and wash in the dishwasher or by hand with the natural cleaning brush. The pouch can be washed on a normal cycle or by hand.
These straws are durable and should last at least 12 months each. When they're finally done, you can add it to your compost to biodegrade naturally. If your pouch and cleaning brush are still going strong, top up your set with a new Original Bamboo Straw here.
If the cleaning brush is on its last legs, you can also add it to your compost too until the coconut fibre bristles degrade, and then sift out the metal and add it to your metal recyclying bin if your council will allow, or take it to a scrap metal recycler. And if after years your pouch is finally done too, cut if up into smaller pieces and add it to your compost.
