How are bamboo straws made?
Here's how we make our bamboo straws, the entire process is safe, non-toxic and completely organic:
- Bamboo branches are first identified for the right thickness and cut to length.
- After cutting the bamboo the hole at the center of the branch is made larger. Usually there is already a small hole so this makes it easy to either make it bigger with a round file.
- The bamboo straw is then sanded on both ends to make sure there are no splinters and give it a nicer more elegant look!
- The bamboo straws are then put in boiling water for 10 minutes to disinfect them and then dried in the sun.
