A straw that is simple and natural as it gets. Hollow wheat stems are cut to a standard shape to form beautifully functional drinking straws that can replace traditional single-use plastic and paper straws.  A perfect addition to any bar or restaurant looking to visually display their commitment to reducing unnecessary single-use plastic.  To reduce waste even further, offer straws on request only.

Being made from wheat stems, which are made up of cellulose plant cells, while the gluten is held within the seed the gluten reading is almost undetectable. Third party tests indicate 5ppm (parts per million) of gluten, under EU Guidelines a product or food is considered gluten free if it contains less than 20ppm of gluten.

Wooden serving box provided for every 5000 straws ordered.

Environmental Impact

As a more sustainable alternative to plastic and paper straws, natural wheat straws reduce waste from manufacturing and as they are a fully natural product offer a more environmentally friendly choice.  Additionally, wheat grows quickly and is harvested annually, unlike the decades it takes for trees to mature before they can be processed into paper for straws.

Packaging Disposal Home Compostable

Cardboard packaging is fully recyclable.

Product Disposal Home Compostable, Naturally Biodegradable

Once the product has been consumed, it can be disposed of in a domestic style compost, with organic waste that is collected for compost or in general waste.

Turtle Straws

We supply straws made from a natural material, that are effective for drinking and that don't rely on cutting down trees as is the case with paper straws.  Turtle straws are made from a by-product of wheat production, the raw material is available every year after harvest and it would otherwise go to waste.  

Like most people I know, I was concerned to see the impact of the billions of straws that are consumed every year on marine environments and wildlife, in particular turtles.  Having lived and worked in coastal resorts, I wanted to be part of the solution and set out to find a more natural alternative, hence Turtle Straws was created and continues to go from strength to strength.
