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.

Usually after harvesting this waste will be burned down. What we do is we collect this residual waste from farms worldwide, cut it 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!  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.

We don’t recommend to use the 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.
