About Us

Our Process

1

We hand select all wheat stems according to the length and diameter to ensure suitability for drinking use.

2

The outer skin of the wheat stems is removed and sent for the first round of the rinsing process to remove any foreign particles.

3

The wheat stems are soaked and rinsed with sterilised water to ensure our strict hygiene standards are satisfied before being air dried.

4

At 30% humidity, the wheat stems are cut by machine to ensure all straws are the same length.

5

The straws are sorted and inspected according to our strict product requirements to ensure customer satisfaction.

6

The wheat straws are washed again using boiled purified water.

7

After the wheat straws are dried, they are placed into a disinfection cabinet, which uses the ozone method to sterilise the wheat straws further.

8

Finally, the wheat straws are tied together and prepared for the hand-packed plastic-free packaging.

Our Mission

Hay Straws was developed to provide a practical and environmentally friendly alternative to plastic and paper drinking straws. Driven by our passion for the environmental crisis facing our planet, Hay Straws strives to provide a sustainable drinking straw solution for all.

We became inspired by the anti-plastic and no straw movement after reading dozens of articles about plastic polluting the ocean, not to mention the shocking video of a straw being pulled out of a sea turtle’s nose.
