STRAWS THAT PROTECT OUR SOIL
STRAWAI'I HAS PARTNERED UP WITH HERBICIDE FREE CAMPUS THIS MONTH! FOR EVERY BEE STRAW SOLD, WE WILL DONATE $1 TO HERBICIDE FREE CAMPUS. LET'S DECOLONIZE AESTHETICS & CREATE A TOXIN-FREE WORLD TOGETHER!
In Partnership with Herbicide Free Campus
Using hands, not herbicides! Unfortunately, not all of our landscapes are herbicide and pesticide free, which violates our human right to health and safety. Strawai’i partner Herbicide Free Campus is a coalition of students, professors, scientists, environmental lawyers, and social justice organizations that work together to eliminate synthetic herbicides on their campuses. They envision a toxin-free world where we create a more safer sustainable living by starting locally and advocating for organic land management. Our generation and future generations deserve clean soil and the right to health and safety. Decolonize aesthetics!
Available Sizes : length between 7 - 8.5 inches.
Coffee/Beverage (diameter: 0.5-1 cm) - Perfect for your hot tea or coffee in the morning!
Please note: cleaners don’t fit inside the coffee-sized straws due to the inconsistency of the natural coconut husk fibers and the hand-making process, and the natural variation in bamboo wall thickness.
- Smoothie (diameter: 0.75-1.25 cm) - A slightly wider inside diameter straw, perfect for smoothies and shakes.
Bubble Tea - (diameter 10mm (.4 in) - These straws were designed for bubble tea, big enough for tapioca balls, bubbles, and fruits. The end of these straws are also pointed to easily pierce the drinks cover. (Length: 6.5-9 in)
Strawai'i bamboo straws come in various sizes and are perfect for both 🍹ice cold smoothies and ☕️steaming hot coffees alike.
Your bamboo straws are safe and ready for use. Nonetheless, we always recommend rinsing before the first use.
Straw Cleaning Instructions
Bamboo straws are simpler to care for than we think.
They are washable in a dishwasher - yes, completely dishwasher-safe. Your bamboo straw has been sanitized in boiling water for 10 minutes and sun-dried.
To maintain bamboo’s natural structure and antimicrobial properties, please try to wash your bamboo straws after every use. A rinse with warm water should suffice, but you may also wash it with soap on a regular basis. A straw brush/cleaner can also be used.
Shortening Your Straw
Our coffee straws are shipped a little long, both due to us wanting to use as much of the bamboo as possible, and also so you can use it in any size container. However, if you find your straw too long for your liking, you can easily shorten it. All you have to do is sand down the ends to your desired length, and then rinse before use. A belt or disk sander works best, but you can do it by hand in just a few minutes.
