STRAWS THAT PROTECT Native Forest Animals
In Partnership with The Pueo Project
STRAWAI'I PARTNER THE PUEO PROJECT PROTECTS OUR NATIVE HAWAIIAN SHORT-EARED OWLS BY IMPROVING THEIR HABITATS AND MONITORING THEIR POPULATIONS. FOR EVERY PUEO STRAW SOLD THIS MONTH, WE WILL DONATE $1 TO THE PUEO PROJECT.
The Pueo Project is a conservation effort formed at the University of Hawaii at Manoa. Pueos or Hawaiian Short-eared owls are important to the Hawaian ecosystem because they control population sizes by preying on introduced rodents and other invasive species. In 2005, the Pueo was state-listed as an endangered species, followed by the declining populations of other short-eared owls in Europe and North America. Their decline resulted due to habitat disturbance and a reduced population of small mammals.The Pueo Project dedicates their time in researching the two needs of the Pueo: improving population monitoring and defining habitats important to population stability.

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.
