Bamboo Straws – 15 cm length. These reusable bamboo straws are 100% natural and made by a family run business in Bali. They source their bamboo from their own forest plot, cut the bamboo into pieces using cutting machines, then wash them inside and out using only water, leaving them to dry naturally in the sun. No chemicals are used in this process. Bamboo straws are made to last a long time, but if for any reason you wish to dispose of your straws you will be happy to know they are 100% compostable and biodegradable, returning back to raw natural materials very quickly.
Taking Care of Your Straws: After each use it is important to clean and dry your straws, to make sure they last. If you are drinking water or a soft drink, they can be simply rinsed with luke warm water and a small drop of washing up liquid. If using your straws for a thicker drink such as a smoothie, use a drop of washing up liquid on a cleaning brush, to make sure no bits get left inside of your straw. Always let your bamboo straws dry fully.
Party Bag – our newspaper bags are made by an NGO whose main objective is to provide education and shelter to street children. This eco-friendly product is made from recycled Indian newspaper. The organisation was started in 2004 by street children who wanted to give something back in return for the opportunities which had allowed them to escape desperate circumstances. These elder children, now with children of their own, generate an income by making newspaper bags and jute items. This allows them to take care of the children that they have taken in from the streets surrounding New Delhi train station. Support for this wonderful project means that these children can enjoy going to school and playing, rather than pulling rickshaws, shoe polishing, rag picking and worse.
The newspapers are either in Indian language or English. They are made from recycled newspapers, this is why sometimes your bag will have a completed crossword!
