Six Quick Pros and Cons of Bamboo Straws For Your Bar or Restaurant

✅ Provide a laid-back tropical vibe appropriate for some tiki bars and holiday resorts.

✅ Break down in the ocean in 4-6 months, so are unlikely to be harmful to wildlife.

❌ Highly absorbent so difficult to clean properly... saliva is absorbed which poses a health and safety risk and drinks are absorbed which affects the taste of the next.

❌ Will break after 1-15 uses, so are essentially still a disposable product contributing to waste.

❌ Are a disposable item, wasting the world’s finite resources as they are re-manufactured constantly to be used just a few times.

❌ Cannot be washed in the dishwasher or glasswasher, so need to be hand scrubbed which is time consuming for staff.
