Biodegradable Wheat Straws

Hay! straw

Straws are made from natural wheat stems and are 100% biodegradable, which means they won’t linger in landfills, polluting our land or oceans. They are similar in feel and function to the plastic straws we’ve all become so accustomed to, but without the toxins and the damaging footprint on our earth. Unlike paper straws, HAY! Straws are made from a renewable source, they don’t get soggy.

  • I like this sustainable option for straws! I guess they work perfectly for cold drinks, but what about warm/hot drinks? If they are compostable and biodegradable, I guess they will react at high temperature right? So the storage will be a bit tricky as well.
    Anyway, they work perfectly for cold drinks, that it is the most usual purpose of a straw.

    How can this be improved?

  • Nice idea. It would be important to source this locally so as not to undo the benefits by burning CO2 to ship it around.
