YEP. WHEAT STRAW. Wheat straws are made from agricultural leftovers. They provide an additional income stream for farmers, do not impact food production, or increase energy use. It's one of the few disposable products that aren't harmful to the environment. That makes for guilt-free sipping. Enjoy.

INGREDIENTS Wheat. Yep. That's all.
Wheat Straws comes from a by product after wheat grains have been harvested. Agricultural waste will be readily available as long as humanity engages in agriculture. So it's entirely renewable and diverts this 'waste' from landfills. The Wheat Straw is naturally gluten-free, since only the seeds and chaffs contains gluten.
Since the product only contains the straws, it is 100% biodegradable, unbleached and natural product. It is strong enough to be dishwashable and when drinking hot, the straws will be a little softer. It has FDA and RoHS approval and the factory passed a BSCI test in February 2019.
