Eco pasta-based straws from Stroodles

Stroodles pasta straws are a pasta-based alternative to paper, plastic or metal straws.

Made only from durum wheat and water, the straws are biodegradable, edible, vegan and zero-waste. The straws are flavourless and, opposed to their cardboard counterparts, stay strong and firm in liquids for over one hour.

Unlike paper that requires around month to decompose, pasta straws decompose within a day.

Whilst the straws are not suitable for those with gluten intolerances, founder Maxim Gelmann says that a gluten-free version is in the works, and hopes to make all Stroodles gluten-free by the end of the year. The company also aims to have brandable Stroodles in the future.
