Naturally Different 

 

It’s a natural by-product of wheat harvests

 

It’s non-porous 

Nobody likes a mushy straw, it’ll stay hard for hours.

 

It’s an attractive product 

The straws are completely natural. Each has it’s own unique personality, they’ll suit any bar top or restaurant. 

 

It’s a way of promoting your eco-friendly business 

Everybody’s talking about plastic, let your customers know how much you care about the environment.

 

It's a single use product 

Let's be honest reusable straws get dirty. This is a non-harmful, single use product; so no need to suck on someone else's straw.

 

It’s 100% compostable

It's 100 % natural 

and chemical and gluten free! 

Straw Evolution

The Wheat Straws Company are passionate about the environment and by introducing Wheat Straws we want to help businesses reduce their harmful waste. 

However, the public’s best-eco-interests are being led down the wrong path. The plastic straws are being substituted with paper and bio-plastic, which are often misconceived as being better for the environment.  

Paper Straws 

 

Paper straws seem a better choice than plastic, but also are very problematic. 

 

Firstly they are porous, meaning they become soggy in just a few minutes. However wheat straws are non-porous, so they don’t absorb the water and therefore stay hard for hours. 

 

They also contribute towards deforestation, as mature trees have to be destroyed to keep up with the demand for paper. The paper is then heavily processed before becoming a straw. 

 

Wheat straws are a by-product of the harvesting process and therefore completely natural. This stem would otherwise be burnt or thrown away, so it actually reduces gas emissions too. 

 

Bio-plastic or PLA Straws 

 

Bio-plastics are not as ‘bio’ as they suggest. 

 

Even though Bio-plastic and PLA straws are made from natural materials, such as corn starch, the product still ends up very similar to normal plastic. 

 

Unlike the wheat straws, most Bio-plastic and PLA straws do not bio-degrade naturally. They only de-compose under very specific scientific conditions, if they are not disposed of properly and end up in a landfill or the ocean, they have the same impact as plastic.

Why are businesses so keen to replace one manufactured product with another? 

 

Why not something exSTRAWdinary? Why not a Wheat Straw?
