The Most Eco-Friendly Straw

Our sugarcane straws are the perfect biodegradable straw for restaurants,  corporate office spaces, and home-use. 

Sugarcane (a perennial grass in the genus Saccharum) is the world’s largest crop by production quantity, with 1.9 billion tons produced in 2018. Sugarcane has immense potential as a renewable source of plant fibers (cut at the base for harvest and grown back again).

Our environmentally friendly sugarcane straws are made with 100% plant-based ingredients using real sugarcane fibers that will grow back over time. They are biodegradable, certified compostable, and reusable which makes them one of the most eco-friendly straws available to purchase to date.

'Biodegradable' means an object can be broken down by living things, while 'compostable' means it will turn into compost. All composting is biodegradation, but not all biodegradation is composting.

Yes! Our sugarcanes are OK Compost HOME certified. This means our straws will compost at lower temperatures, so they can go into the compost heap in your garden at home, hence the title "HOME"

Straws Made from Plants

Sugarcane straws are made from the byproduct of the sugarcane refining process

sugarcane upcycle sustainability

Instead of throwing away or incinerating leftover sugarcane bagasse (fibers), we rescue, recycle, and transform what would have been agricultural and commercial waste into eco-friendly, compostable, biodegradable straws. This reduces environmental impact and prevents unnecessary landfill waste by employing the principles of a circular economy.

Certified Biodegradable by BPI

All our products have been certified by Biodegradable Products Institute (BPI). Compostable, no chemicals added. Other certifications include FDA-Approval, EU No.10/2011, and more!

People ❤️ Sugarcane Straws

Earth friendly straws that people actually love.

Tall enough to fit a Yeti tumbler

Love these straws! they're tall enough to fit into a 30oz yeti tumbler. my girlfriend cuts them in half for her mugs, so they're great for short cups too. these straws work on every large size cup from any fast food place, which is great for California since plastic straws are no longer given unless you ask for them. these sugarcane straws are biodegradable, but don't become soggy in water even after a week (you should probably swap them out after a few days)

Holding up great!

These straws are holding up much better than I expected. I had these horrible cardboard straws in restaurants and hated them but wanted to go green when using straws at home. With these sugarcane straws I can have a good straw and be environmentally friendly - win win!

Great eco friendly straws that don't get soggy!!

I know how bad plastic straws are for the environment I wanted to try paper again. These hold up well as an affordable alternative to other "eco" straws... I especially like how they don't get all soggy and gross after 5 minutes.

My new perfect straw!

I've been trying to find a decent compostable straw for the past year. This sugarcane straw is by far the best! To start-it holds up- this is a big deal as soggy straws are gross. No more paper straws for me.The clear compostable straws hold up well but are plastic looking so when I put them in the compost bin I'm not sure they are processed( by the city) as they are not marked compostable. Plus if I throw the clear straws out they will break down after years in a land fill. I don't want any straws that I've used to stay longer on the earth then me! This sugarcane straws look different. They will never be mistaken for a plastic straw. They are sturdy. I've never had one break down in my shake. They are easy to drink a thick shake without being huge. I was unable to drink my shake with the regular size paper or clear straws. The clear straws sells bigger shake straws but they're so big I feel like a little kid drinking through them. So to sum up this review-the sugarcane straws are just right!
