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.
1 billion plastic, petroleum-based, non-biodegradable straws are used everyday worldwide. Our 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. Use a jar of warm water with soap to shake them clean, or clean with a pipe cleaner. A purchase of bamboo straws is a vote for sustainable materials. Each straw is 10 inches in length. The straws can last for years and years when properly cared for.
Cleaning your bamboo straw is incredibly easy and can be done in several ways. All you need to do to clean your bamboo straw is either:
– Hand-wash with lukewarm water and soap. – Put it in the dishwasher. – Boil in water for 10 minutes.
