Our certified compostable bamboo straws are made from 100% plant-based ingredients.
Bamboo is the fastest growing plant in the world. For example, it takes 25-70 years to harvest timber. Bamboos, which aren’t trees, are growing into an adult strain within just 6 years.
The trunks that we harvest are precisely recorded.
Bamboo has an extensive network of rhizomes, where new bamboo shoots come out of. The growth of bamboo shoots is stimulated by cutting regularly.
Notice: we will never use bamboo which is intended for pandas!
The production of Joe’s Heroes’ bamboo straws: the bamboo is first cleaned with water, then it is cut and perforated. Hereafter it is dried in direct sunlight for dehydration and disinfection. Finally, the straws are polished up to 8 hours to remove dirt, and checked and packed.
Our bamboo straws are reusable and can be cleaned with hot water and the added special brush.
Joe’s Heroes’ 100% natural bamboo straws are:
- 100% biodegradable
- Fully compostable
- Heat resistant
And … they never get soggy!
