Bamboo straws are biodegradable and naturally anti-microbial. Bamboo grows back quickly so there is less disruption to the environment they come from. Having a reusable option helps to eliminate unnecessary plastic waste.

Our bamboo straws do not contribute to the unnecessary environmental damage that enters into our waterways and ends up in our oceans. Every year, over 1 million seabirds and 100,000 marine animals die from ingesting plastic.An antimicrobial is an agent that kills microorganisms or stops their growth. The main classes of antimicrobial agents are disinfectants.
