The Bamboo Drinking Straws are a great addition to your kitchen and a fantastic way to reduce single-use plastics. They are ideal for using with either hot or cold drinks.
In March 2019, legislation to ban the supply of plastic straws, stirrers and cotton buds in England laid in parliament marking an important step in the government’s fight against single-use plastics.
At the time, Michael Gove confirmed that the ban followed an open consultation, which revealed “overwhelming” public support for the move.
“Urgent and decisive action is needed to tackle plastic pollution and protect our environment,”
Mr Gove said.
“These items are often used for just a few minutes but take hundreds of years to break down, ending up in our seas and oceans and harming precious marine life.”
Vegan Green Bee’s Bamboo Drinking Straws come is a set of six and are sent to you with a cleaning brush. They are 20cm long and approximately 7-9mm in diameter. They are perfect to use to drink your smoothies, milk shakes and cocktails.
Your Bamboo Straws will last a lifetime – unlike paper and plastic straws – as long as you give them a little care. We advise boiling them in a little salt and vinegar before using for the first time to remove any residue or woody aroma.
After each use, rinse your plant based drinking straws under the tap and every so often clean the inside using the cleaning brush provided. You can even put your bamboo straws in the dishwasher, but make sure to switch off the hot & dry function and dry them immediately.
Store your bamboo straws in a well-ventilated place. Take care not to leave them in sunlight as this will turn them a bright shade of golden yellow!
