theotherstraw is a social enterprise replacing single-use plastic straws with reusable, organic, ethically-sourced, eco-friendly, 100% natural, biodegradable, bamboo straws!
It is estimated by 2050 there will be more plastic in the ocean than fish. And the places we’ve grown up to love might not be there for our children or our grandchildren in the future.
In Australia alone, it is estimated that 10 million plastic straws are used every single day. They take hundreds, sometimes thousands of years to actually break down. Think about it this way, every plastic straw you have ever used still exists today.
theotherstraw – is a straw that doesn’t cost the earth.
theotherstraw can be reused hundreds of times, is fully organic, and is compostable at the end of its lifespan. Our reusable straws are made entirely from sustainably grown bamboo, ethically sourced in Northern Vietnam. Bamboo is the sustain able alternative to plastic straws, it’s one of the fastest growing plants in the world, releasing up to 35% more oxygen than trees.
Reusable organic drinking straws are a very simple way to help stop the plastic pollution problem. Join us in a battle against plastic waste today: www.theotherstraw.com
