These naturally grown straws are hand-carved and hand-cut to produce an elegant and eco-friendly wheat straw used for drinking. The company called Straw Straws is a Boston-based organization founded by Alex Bennett.

Straw Straws are wheat straws that are extremely durable, that look great in cocktails and mixed drinks, are tasteless and that can be reused. The eco-friendly production of sustainable agricultural methods aids in the fact that these straws do not need to be tossed away after one use.

The durability of the straws is essential to the process of drinking because plastic straws often break or accumulate holes from their weak material. With over 500 plastic straws ending up in landfills each day, the straw straw is a great alternative.
