Sugarcane is a sustainable material and produces strong fibers used to make bags, wicker furniture and paper.
The dry remaining residue after the extraction of juices from the crushed stalks of sugarcane, is a renewable raw material (called bagasse). As a by-product of the sugar industry, bagasse was generally disposed of but now it’s turned into paper!. Using sugarcane to produce paper can save thousands of trees each year. For ecoafriq
, the sugarcane inspired these plastic free, biodegradable drinking straws. They come in a pack of 30 straws and are available at our online shop.
