How to clean Bamboo Straws:
1) We advise people to boil their bamboo straws in a little salt and vinegar before using them for the first time. This helps to remove any residue, or remove any ‘woody’ aroma.

2) After each use, rinse your plant based drinking straws under the tap and every so often clean the inside using a cleaning brush. You can even put your Jungle Straws in the dishwasher, but make sure to switch off the hot & dry function and dry them immediately. Easy? We told you so!

3) Always allow your bamboo straws to dry fully but fear not; they dry very quickly! Store your straws in a well-ventilated place, and never in air-tight containers or jars.

4) Aside from keeping your Jungle Straws dry, keep them well-ventilated as well.

Tip: Leaving your Jungle Straws to dry naturally in sunlight turns your straws into a bright shade of golden yellow!
  • These Bamboo Straws are produced by Jungle Straws, a socially responsible company that manufactures and supplies SGS certified, food safe bamboo straws and eco-friendly products that promote sustainable living. Since the beginning, Jungle Straws has worked to support, educate, and inspire individuals and businesses of all kinds to make the switch to reusable and zero waste alternatives in order to reduce the devastating effects that single-use plastic pollution is having on our planet. They oversee all aspects of the manufacturing and supply chain operations in person, including the source of the raw materials in Vietnam and work to build ethical relationships with the artisans with whom they work alongside.
  • Jungle Straws proudly challenges modern production techniques that place too much emphasis on profit at the expense of people and our environment. Their values in eco-sustainability are not just about how cheaply a product can be manufactured. Instead, it is of great importance that their bamboo straws are sourced responsibly, using natural and organic materials. This limits waste throughout the entire production process, and helps to support local communities in rural areas. Their farms and workshops use sustainable bamboo and natural materials, grown responsibly in Vietnam. During the harvest and production phase, no chemicals are used. Their bamboo is cultivated organically, without the need for any harmful fertilizers or pesticides, and so growing it doesn’t contribute to any unwelcome elements entering ground-water.
  • Why use bamboo? Not only does it look and feel great, but it is 100% sustainable, fully biodegradable, and can be harvested in as little as 3-5 years. Bamboo releases 35% more oxygen into our atmosphere and absorbs more carbon dioxide when compared to other plants. Jungle Straws reusable alternatives and zero waste swaps help reduce the heart-breaking and saddening use of plastic and single use plastic items, which are contributing to the demise of wildlife and ocean habitats all around the world.

Bamboo straws are biodegradable and compostable. Simply break them up or chop them into a few pieces to help them biodegrade and place them in your compost bin with excess food and organics. If you do not have a compost bin, your reusable straws are essentially sticks! Just break them into a few pieces and toss them into the soil in your garden. Insects and plants will have no trouble breaking them down.
