Earth Day The Hague celebration is fast approaching. In keeping with the International Earth Day theme for 2018 of eliminating plastic pollution, we are happy to welcome Straw by Straw to our eco-market.
Straw by Straw is a sustainable straw start-up based in Amsterdam.
We prevent plastics from reaching the ocean by providing organic alternatives.
Our first product is a drinking straw made of straw, 100% natural.
Every year, European farmers need cover crops to feed their soil.
Once these cover crops, such as wheat and rye, are harvested for food, the left over stalks can be used to make drinking straws.
This way, plastic straws are history by using the waste of cover crop harvests!
