What are wheat straws made of?
Eco wheat drinking straws are biodegradable and natural straws made of natural wheat stems. Every year there are tons of residual waste in the agricultural sector worldwide.
Usually after harvesting this waste will be burned. What we do is we collect this residual waste from farms worldwide and pay them a fair fee, cut the stems into the requested lengths and sterilize it in warm water afterwards.
This process ensures that we defeat bacteria. The extra benefit of this procedure is that the straws will not stick to your lips while enjoying your drink!
We never add any kind of chemicals while sterilizing.
It doesn’t matter if you want to enjoy a hot or cold drink, it’s made for almost any kind of drink. Your ice-tea or cocktail will taste delicious over and over again with our natural eco straw in your drink.
We don’t recommend to use the straw straws for smoothies or thick milkshakes. It is a natural product so we can’t influencing the diameter of the straw. Nature made them 3-7 mm thick. Still the narrow diameter is perfect for almost any kind of drink.
What makes wheat drinking straws sooooo natural and eco-friendly?
Our straws are made from the bottom of cereal plants so we often get the questions if they are gluten-free? Yes the are! Gluten are found in the seeds of cereal grains. As we only use the stalk of the plant with no seeds, our straws do not contain gluten so are save to use.
Residue free, Wheat drinking straws do not get soggy in liquid like cocktails, lemonades, juices and soft drinks like paper ones do.
100% biodegradable and sterilized without chemicals added.
Wheat Straws are fully grown in the nature. As they naturally develop a strong structure we do not need chemicals to make them stronger. After harvesting the straw straws, they are cut and cleaned. After sterilizing the straws are usable as drinking straw. In the whole process are no chemicals added.
As our Wheat Straws are 100% natural, they are compostable. They are made to end up in the environment because they serve as nutrients for our soil.
Our Wheat Straws are coming from farmers and producers with a BSCI certificate. This means that the working environments and wages are honest and according to international standards.
