In Partnership with Papahānaumokuākea Marine Debris Project (PMDP)

DESIGN: Honu (sea turtle)

Marine debris and plastic pollution. An estimated 115,000 pounds of derelict fishing nets are found in the coral reefs of Papahānaumokuākea every year. It is common to find seabirds ingesting plastic debris, endangered Hawaiina monk seals and threatened green sea turtles entangled in derelict fishing nets. Papahānaumokuākea Marine Debris Project (PMDP) protects the wildlife and critical habitats of the Papahānaumokuākea Marine National Monument (PMNM) that encompasses 583,000 square miles of deep ocean and uninhabited islands. Through their amazing work, they have 431 metric tons of derelict nets, saved 87 Hawaiian monk seals (only 1,400 left) from entangled nets, and continue to protect this sacred area. Protect what you love. Together we are united by the ocean.

Your bamboo straws are safe and ready for use. Nonetheless, we always recommend rinsing before the first use.

head & cold proof, but not dog-proof :)

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.
