What are wheat straws made of? Wheat straws are biodegradable and natural straws made of 100% natural wheat stems. Every year there are tons of residual waste in the agricultural sector worldwide.

It doesn’t matter if you want to enjoy a hot or cold drink, it’s made for almost any kind of drink. Your...

A SIMPLE IDEA TURNED INTO A MOONSHOT PROJECT The Ocean Cleanup is designing and developing the first feasible method to rid the world’s oceans of plastic. Every year, millions of tons of plastic enter the ocean. A significant percentage of this plastic drifts into large systems of circulating ocean currents, also known as gyres. Once trapped in a gyre, the plastic will break down into microplastics and become increasingly easier to mistake for food by sea life.
