The Story behind these Bio Bamboo Straws
The farmers in Angkor Archaeological Park in Siem Reap Province, Cambodia go to the moats of the temple ruins and cut these wild growing bamboos. They wash, cut and dry them in sun with great care before delivering them to us. In this way, they create an additional income and afford some better life conditions.
Our Bio Bamboo Straw is long-lasting, and cleaning them is easy! All you need is to rinse them out under the tap after everyday use or shake in a jar of warm soapy water if you like. Every month or so, you can boil a pot of vinegar water mix and soak the straws for a few mins if you want a super thorough clean! Just remember to dry your bamboo straws immediately after. Bio Bamboo Straws dry quickly! Soaking or keeping them wet for too long a period may weaken the bamboo.
Aside from keeping your bamboo straws dry, keep them well-ventilated as well. Do not store in airtight containers. You may keep them in breathable pouch made from organic cotton.
Bio Bamboo Straws are meant to last a year or even longer, but it all depends on the usage of the owner. You will be glad to know that even if you happen to shorten the lifespan of your bamboo straw, they can easily be disposed properly, and you can just get another bamboo straw without adding weight to your conscience.
Bio Bamboo Straws are sustainable and compostable. Once you decide that you have used and abused your bamboo straw, place your straw in a compost bin for its natural process of decomposition.
