Straws made from straw... Do they work?

You bet they do!
 

We designed and tested our straws to be brilliant at being straws!

Jolly Turtle decided to create a straw that would:

  • have minimal environmental impact in production

  • have a neutral carbon footprint

  • protect the world's marine ecosystems

  • contribute to the clean-up operation of plastic pollution in our oceans

  • and importantly be able to serve its purpose as a perfect straw for drinks, cocktails, juices, smoothies, crushes, coffees, and milks!
     

 

So Why are our straws brilliant?

We have selected wheat farmers with respected and renowned heritage and ethical values. The production process ensures that our straws are not burnt, are not discoloured by cooking, and are not brittle.

We are proud to be able to say with confidence to you: "Cheers!" Your straw will not get soggy; it will not scald your lips or feel cold; it will have a neutral taste; there is no compromise compared to paper straws; and you will enjoy your drink knowing that your straw will not impact the environment and will contribute to the clean-up of our beautiful oceans!

Plastic straws contribute significantly to ocean plastic pollution. Although straws are a small percentage of plastic in our seas, they break into micro and macro plastics that are ingested by all creatures in ocean ecosystems.

General Waste; Landfill - Not Recycled!

 

Paper straws are increasingly found in oceans and pose significant risk to marine life whilst they take time to decompose. The damage to forest wildlife attributed to the production off paper straws continues to be investigated.
