Wheat straws were actually the original drinking straw of the 1800s. Farmers would grow the wheat, harvest the grain, then use the leftover stem to sip their hard-earned beer.
Deliciously simple, and altogether sustainable. So why mess with the original?

Wheat stems are considered an agricultural waste product, once the grain is harvested the base of the wheat plant is usually left behind and burnt, so we are turning this waste into a resource. A truly circular solution!
The wheat stems are collected, stripped, washed in boiling water to sterilise and then cooked in the oven. Because the straws are 100% natural each is a slightly different shape and colour.
