Frequently asked questions
Is your bamboo ethically sourced?
Absolutely. The bamboo we use in our reusable drinking straws is 100% sustainable, eco-friendly, and has not contributed to any deforestation. Bamboo requires very few pesticides or heavy machinery to harvest, and all of our straws are proudly cultivated by hand.
Can bamboo straws go in the dishwasher?
Yes, they are 100% dishwasher safe, but make sure to switch off the hot & dry function and dry them immediately. We also recommend using the cleaning brush provided from time to time to remove any trapped debris, and once a month washing them with boiling water and vinegar.
How are bamboo straws made?
The bamboo is cultivated by hand, then it is chopped and filed into the shape of a straw. We believe in zero waste which is why we use the entire bamboo stalk. It is then left to dry in the sun to achieve a well balanced colour. Finally, the straws are pressure washed to remove any dirt residue, and engraved with the Fckplstc brand logo using a fine laser engraver.
Are bamboo straws biodegradable?
They certainly are! Our straws are plant based, fully compostable and can be easily recycled. When you have finished with them, simply put them into a recycling or compost bin, or get creative! Our personal favourite is to use them as plant stands or give them to the kids for homework and craft projects! We do however, strongly advise against using them as pea-shooters!
