This single precision bamboo drinking straw is so called because it is precision cut for a more uniform, regular size. Ideal for cold summer drinks, fruit smoothies and dinner party cocktails.
Key features include:-
Certified organic by the USDA (United States Department of Agriculture)
Free from glues and lacquers
Responsibly produced in China from Chinese Fountain bamboo which grows in Fujian so does not affect pandas as they live in the North, in the Chengdu region.
Please note: Because this straw is made from natural bamboo, it will need washing before first use. If there is any pith on the inside of a straw, it can be brushed out and then washed. Pith is totally natural and edible so should not cause concern.
Straw length approximately 20cm.
Bambu are makers of handcrafted products for the home including bowls, boards & utensils. Their products come from nature and their ideas are inspired by the materials they work with - and crafted in a way that supports sustainable business practices.
Bambu was established in 2003 with a goal to reducing our use and reliance on plastic by providing people with beautiful, non-toxic, sustainable products made from nature.
Founders Jeff & Rachel were born in Portland, Oregon – a place that prides itself on local, homegrown and eco-friendly values, and when they relocated to China for work, (a place often criticised for its manufacturing processes), they took these values with them. They wanted to see if they could find a way of doing things differently – creating interest and excitement in sustainable materials, whilst adhering to ethical business practices.
Today bambu continue to focus on the same key values. They source materials locally, work with people who work with their hands, and produce safe and durable products that will last for years. The primary material they work with is bamboo – well known these days as an endlessly renewable resource that grows very fast without the need for pesticides or fertilisers – and they also work with other sustainable materials such as cork and organic cotton.
For bambu sustainability goes beyond the balance between what they take from the earth and what they return to it. It is central to how they conduct themselves as a business. They are committed to 3rd party certification and testing, promote fair labour practices and safe working conditions and ‘green’ their supply chain. The result – a number of accolades by leading associations and trade groups. They are a certified B Corp – a community of businesses that balance purpose and profit.
