Our compostable straws are made from : 

Sugarcane Straw

Our sugarcane straws are made 100% from the recycled by product ie bagasse of sugar refining industry. Bagasse is the remaining plant fibers that need to be dealt with after the processing the sugarcane to produce sugar. Instead of letting it go into waste, these leftover plant fibers are made use to produce the 100% plant-based compostable sugarcane straw.

Coffee Ground Straw

Our coffee ground straw are made 100% from the recycled waste of each cup of coffee you had ie coffee grounds, the byproduct of the coffee brewing process. With the high coffee consumption, tons of coffee ground are produced daily and go into waste. Hence, recycling this waste has created a great ecosystem for the environment, businesses and the people.

What is the best way to store and handle plant-based straw?

To maintain the best durability and performance of the straws, it is advisable to:

  • Store it in a cool and dry environment, away from the sunlight
  • Avoid pressure or compression being made to the straws
