Stroodles is a British company that came up with a simple yet genius way to replace plastic and paper straws. We already know that plastic straws are not the most eco-friendly solution for sipping drinks, but paper straws often get soggy before we get to finish our drink. The solution? Straws made of pasta!
Stroodles created biodegradable straws by mixing wheat and water. Their straws are edible, vegan, and don’t affect the flavor of drinks. Stroodles will help fight unnecessary plastic waste with an easy-to-use product. “We want to inspire the world and show how easy it is to do good – with just one Stroodle at a time. With Stroodles, you don’t have to change behaviors and compromise on your drinking experience,” the company says.
In case you’re wondering what happens with the stroodles that don’t come out perfectly shaped, the company has an answer. They pack them separately and donate them to food banks.
The simplest ideas are indeed often the best ones!
