With large-scale cafes and fast food corporations pledging to reduce their waste by doing away with single-use straws, the need for biodegradable drinking straws and other eco-friendly alternatives is top-of-mind for both brands and conscious consumers. HAY! Straws sets itself apart by producing a natural, wheat-based drinking straw from a waste product of the wheat harvest process.

The biodegradable drinking straws are made from the stem of the wheat plant and sold in plastic-free packaging. As the crop is in high demand all across the world, it creates plenty of waste material that can be cut, rinsed, sterilized and used for sipping drinks, without the need for additional plants to be grown or harvested. Although the straws are made from wheat waste, HAY! Straws notes that they are not meant to be eaten or digested.
