About Bamboo Sisters
One day, two girls seeing thousands of plastic straws on the beach decided that something had to be done NOW.
My Bamboo sister and I realized that we were so fortunate to be living on a paradise island but we felt it was time to give something back to the island itself by eliminating the plastic straws. Every day we saw straws washed up on the shore and knew there had to be a better way. As two young energetic girls we quickly got to work.
We realized that Bamboo straws were the way to go. Lucky for us Oil, my Bamboo Sister, has family in northern Thailand where an abundance of bamboo was growing naturally (no farming, no chemicals and no genetic modifications). We found our solution! Bamboo straws!
While working with her 15 member family in the north we learned a lot about manufacturing, cleaning and getting the bamboo ready for use. This small idea turned quickly into a big project as we changed not only our lives but the lives of her family very quickly. This family was living on a small monthly salary and now we are supporting them and improving their lives with Bamboo Sisters.
Your purchase goes DIRECTLY to support the family providing food, education opportunities and much more. We continue to work hard to provide the best quality straws with clear high production standards while working as a family. Our whole family thanks you for supporting Bamboo Sisters.
