SAVING THE EARTH FROM A CATA'STRAW'PHE

  • Reusable

    Our straws are reusable and can be easily cleaned in a dishwasher or handwashed using our straw cleaning brush.

  • Saving the oceans

    According to the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), at current rates of pollution, there will likely be more plastic in the sea than fish by 2050. Let's ditch single use plastic products. 

  • Shrink your plastic footprint

    Once in the ocean, plastic can take hundreds of years to degrade, all the while breaking down into smaller and smaller "microplastics" – which can be consumed by marine animals and find their way into the human food chain.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

How do I clean my metal straws?

Do the pasta straws get soggy?

Unlike paper straws that last 15 minutes in a drink, our pasta straws will last 30 - 50 minutes in a cold drink. After that time, the pasta will start to become slightly soggy and the pasta taste will start to appear. 

Also note that pasta straws should not be used in hot drinks.
