HAY! Straws are made from natural wheat stems and are 100%biodegradable, which means they won’t linger in landfills, polluting our land or oceans. They’re similar in feel and function to the plastic straws we’ve all become so accustomed to, but without the toxins and the damaging footprint on our earth. Unlike paper straws, HAY! Straws are made from a renewable source, and best of all, they don’t get soggy!
Our straws are the byproduct of wheat production. Wheat is typically grown for its grain, which gets made into flour and other food products. Once the wheat plant reaches maturity and turns golden yellow, the grain is harvested off. The wheat stems get cut and made into things like hay for animal feed and, in our case,straws—hence the name HAY! Straws!
The best part? Our straws can be tossed right in the compost bin after use. Unlike plastic straws, HAY! Straws will break down naturally, returning to the circle of life.
