Buy 100% Natural Biodegradable Drinking Straws!

Hay straws are made from 100% biodegradable natural wheat stems. Farmers consider these stems as an agricultural waste product because once the grain has been harvested the base of the wheat plant is burnt.

Hay straws are harmless to the environment, soggy free, taste free, gluten free! They also look amazing in your drink.

Our Mission.

Humans have been using hollow, cylindrical tubes to bring liquid to their lips for centuries, most recently through the plastic straw. In 2017, the United Nations Environment Assembly estimated that approximately eight million tons of plastic flow into the world’s oceans annually. Subsequent research has suggested that this figure is expected to increase tenfold by 2020 and by 2050, there will be more plastic, by weight, than fish in the ocean. Hay Straws is a brand and movement advocating for conscious thinking for the planet. We work with farms to harvest the base of the wheat plant to handcraft eco-friendly Hay drinking Straws.

Our restaurant recently made the switch to Hay Straws, and we couldn’t be happier. We have had so much positive feedback from all of our customers! Not only do they not go soggy, but they biodegrade!

I can’t believe nobody has thought of this before. A practical solution to a serious plastic-problem world wide.

10 out of 10!

Our hotel switched to paper straws in an attempt to be more environmentally conscious – however we would consistently receive complaints about how the straws would break down and become soggy… not hay straws!
