SINGLE-USE PLASTIC IS DESTROYING OUR NATURAL ENVIRONMENT. EVERY DAY MORE THAN ONE BILLION STRAWS ARE USED FOR MOMENTS BEFORE BEING DISCARDED. THEY ENTANGLE MARINE ANIMALS AND ARE CONSUMED BY FISH, CAUSING UNTOLD DAMAGE TO OUR ECOSYSTEM AND CONTAMINATING THE VERY FOOD WE CONSUME.
Unfortunately, this plastic use is not set to decrease either. Demand is set to double in the next 20 years and most plastic items are used only once before heading to the landfill. More and more, it’s important that society begins to reject plastic solutions in favour of plant-based alternatives.
Bambew is dedicated to finding lasting, sustainable solutions to single-use plastic, turning to nature to find solutions to our wasteful habits.
Bamboo straws are a perfect example of replacing an ecologically damaging product with a natural alternative. Bamboo is one of the fastest growing plants on earth and grows abundantly across Southeast Asia. The bamboo that BAMBEW uses is harvested from mature trees and is a reusable, completely biodegradable solution to plastic straws.
