Our Materials

We’re all about sustainability. And that means using materials that are derived from nature, abundant, biodegradable, and are all-around nicer to our environment.

Common Reed

Phragmites Australis, also called the common reed, is a type of perennial grass that grows in North America and Asia. The aquatic grass is robust and can grow up to 4 meters high.

Now, instead of letting this invasive species just grow anywhere, we found an interesting way to use them. Because it has such a tough, hollow culm (stem), these can be used as biodegradable drinking straws! And what’s cool is that there are even different diameter sizes in just one stem! We separate the wider diameter to make straws that are perfect for boba teas, and we also have the average-sized straw for drinks.

The best part - they’re BOTH reusable and throwaways. Without hurting the environment, of course.

Bamboo

Can you bend and not break? We don’t know about you, but bamboo definitely can!

Growing abundantly all over the world, bamboo is a durable type of grass that surpasses other plant fibers and even hardwood species.

From its smaller carbon impact, rapid growth (3 years compared to 30 years in forest trees), and higher tensile strength, bamboo is a great sustainable alternative to plastic and wood. It’s simply awesome.

Low Impact Goods

In this trade-off game of letting go of our usual plastic consumption, there’s no single way that best describes a low-impact life. But we’re here to promote items and lifestyle choices that focus on durable, reusable, and biodegradable home items. Isn’t that a great start?

Target Zero Waste

Yes, there’s no such thing as a literal zero waste life. However, our day-to-day choices have a significant effect on our world in the long run. We’re here to learn with you about how to lower our impact through daily actions and habits.
