Grass Straw - Eco-Friendly Disposable Drinking Straw
In today’s world, the most concerning problem is the devastating effects of single-use plastic on our planet. You will be shocked to know this: There are more than 2 billion plastic straws (2,000,000,000) that are used a day and throw away into our environment. And it is killing our ocean, this is really serious!
Aware of that serious problem, here in Vietnam we have researched and found a real solution: Grass Straw.
Grass straws are made from the Leropina grass, which is locally known as “co bang”, grows around the Mekong Delta region in southwestern Vietnam. Leropina grass is easily planted and has a perfect round structure. The sedge grass has a hollow stem, making it perfect for use as a natural straw, that is the reason why these grasses are a great alternative solution to plastic straws.

Are you curious about the processes to make a Grass Straw?
Each grass straw is made from a single piece of organic Leropina grass and gone the processes below:
Step1: Handling the material
The grass is carefully harvested from grass fields in rotation. We choose to cut the highest quality grasses whilst maintaining an ecological balance.

We cut it with the standard size of 20cm (8 inches) or the size of the client’s requirement. We do this by hand so we can be sure the tips don’t break or cut and are safe to sip from.
Step 4: Clean inside the straws.
After classified size, the straws will be cleaned inside with a special, thin, spiral tool. This step takes patience, care, and time.
