These bamboo fibre drinking straws have been designed as a sustainable product solution. In a specially developed manufacturing process, bamboo is ground and the powder is used to produce drinking straws of different diameters. The drinking straws can be left in drinks for up to 24 hours without them swelling. In addition, they withstand temperatures from -20 to +100 degrees centigrade. The drinking straws can be disposed as general waste, or be composted, decomposing completely within months.
Statement by the Jury
From cultivation and processing to disposal, the production of these bamboo fibre drinking straws is based on an ecologically sound concept.
