This is a straw made from natural bamboo. This material can be reused and is easily recyclable. Bamboo offers you a special experience thanks to the sensations it provides while consuming your favorite drink. Very strong, bamboo straw is not temperature sensitive like some other types of straw.
Contrary to popular belief, bamboo is not a tree, but a grass. This is why it regenerates so quickly and is not afraid of extinction. For starters, bamboo is an inexpensive herb available in large quantities and found in different parts of the world. The speed with which bamboo grows varies depending on the species. It is used in various fields of life and has some interesting characteristics. First, despite its great lightness and flexibility, bamboo is a very durable and resistant plant. In addition, it is ecological since it is 100% natural.
Straw has become a must-have utensil for drink enthusiasts to the point where plastic straws have been banned in some parts of the world. Indeed, plastic straws, non-biodegradable, pollute the environment. A study in 2017 showed that in Europe, nearly 36,5 billion single-use straws are used.
In the United States, we are talking about 500 million straws per day. These alarming figures sufficiently show the need to use an alternative to these plastic straws. Bamboo straw therefore alleviates this problem of planetary pollution and therefore asserts itself as the straw of tomorrow.
Cleaning bamboo straw is quite simple. After each use, you must wash your bamboo straw. You can wash it with dish soap and use the cleaning brush to reach hard to reach areas. After washing, you must immediately dry your bamboo straw to prevent moisture from setting in.
Local farmers harvest bamboo from riverbeds, taking care not to alter the growth of the plant. After cutting the stems, they are processed by hand into straws and without chemicals.
The cut stems are dried in the sun to make them hard and brown. Then, these rods are cut with knives in different lengths. Then the straws are sanded in order to obtain a clean and smooth finish. The last step is to wash the bamboo straws and boil them in a solution of water and vinegar to disinfect them. Finally, they are left to dry before being packaged.
The lifespan of bamboo straw varies depending on the frequency of use and maintenance. The average lifespan of bamboo straws is estimated between 6 months and a year with regular use.
