The benefit of using a bamboo straw is not only sustainable but stylish at the same time.  Say no to single use plastic straws at your next Starbucks or fast food trip by replacing it with your Sip Naked bamboo straw. Learn more about the benefits of using bamboo straws below.


They are eco-friendly and biodegradable 

First and foremost, bamboo straws are eco-friendly and biodegradable! Sip Naked bamboo straws are fully compostable. Plastic straws can take 200 years or more to break down to and they never truly disappear. 


They are reusable

Unlike single use plastic, which is terrible for our environment, bamboo straws can be continuously used time and time again and will always look good in a drink. Because bamboo straws are made of natural plant based materials, they will eventually need to be replaced depending on the amount of use and after care. When you are ready, you can easily compost your Sip Naked bamboo straw. Simply place it in the compost bin. If you want to get creative, we love using them as plant stands! Say goodbye to your single use plastic straw.


They can easily replace single use plastic straws 

Most plastics are not biodegradable and can be extremely harmful to the environment. Especially when we overproduce, over-use, and over-consume and then fail to reuse, recycle, and/or dispose of it properly. Many types of straws cannot be reused or recycled due to the chemical makeup of the product. Despite the increasing awareness of the dangers of single use plastics, production continues. This is why we advocate using bamboo straws as a replacement as they are much safer for us and the place we call home. 


They are 100% safe

Bamboo straws are made from nature. When you use plastic straws, especially single use plastic straws, you can end up consuming some of the chemicals or toxins, which can have a negative impact on your health. You should always be aware of what you are using in your everyday life. Bamboo does not require any high energy process to make and they are completely biodegradable.


Bamboo straws are zero waste

A lot of our beaches are being polluted with single use plastics, including straws. This can be due to many reasons such as littering, trash from boats, heavy winds and ocean currents pushing lightweight plastics from the trash and much more.  Most plastic straws simply break into ever-smaller particles, releasing chemicals into the soil, air, and water that are harmful to animals, plants, people, and the environment. Bamboo straws are biodegradable and reusable, making them the perfect waste-free option to phase out single-use plastics.
