Crafting premium bamboo straws​

From the Vietnamese island of Phu Quoc, our team is adapting traditional know-how to craft premium Bamboo Straws.  With these, we empower our Island and the world to take a meaningful step toward sustainability. A Bamboo Step.

WHY USING BAMBOO FOR A DRINKING STRAW?

Bamboo is one of the most sustainable resources on earth. Its antibacterial properties and its soft and warm touch make it a great food contact material.

WHO IS USING THESE BAMBOO STRAWS?

These reusable straws were first developed to be suitable and appealing to the high end hospitality industry on our island. They have quickly become very popular with visitors who brought them home for personal use. Today, the Bamboo Step straws enjoy an international reputation.

WHAT IS A PREMIUM BAMBOO STRAW?

When "ECO" makes so much sense

DESIGN & SUSTAINABILITY

Premium bamboo straws are the result of design and sustainability coming together. The strategy was to offer a very appealing eco product that would be liked and adopted. 

Therefore, the straws had to do better than the plastic straw on every level. They would have to be natural and sustainable, of course. But they would also be beautiful!

Zero Waste

100% Biodegradable, the bamboo eventually turns back into organic nutriments.

MAKING A PREMIUM STRAW WITH BAMBOO

First of all, we farm and harvest a very specific species of bamboo. The raw material is then cured until maturity, through a fully natural process. Then, we cut each straw from a selected culm of solid bamboo and fully sanitise it. 

Finally, we remove the outer skin to reveal the elegant fibre pattern of this particular species. This last step is very unique to the premium bamboo straw manufacturing process and what makes them so popular. 

Our alternative to single-use plastic STRAWS

Make a big difference with a small step

BEING RESPONSIBLE FOR THE FUTURE

We are all aware of the devastating effects of single-use plastic to our ecosystem… 

Giving up the plastic straws only solves a small part of a much bigger problem. But it is a great first step! It is also a case where we are empowered as individuals, because we have the choice. By using a natural and sustainable material, we avoid all the trouble that comes from using fossil ressources, polluting manufacturing processes, or unreliable waste management systems.
