Before Covid The Little Green Panda team and I ventured deep into the depths of rural Mongolia to visit the farmers who make our wheat stem drinking straws.
If you don't already know, our signature wheat straws are a single-use alternative to these pesky plastic straws (BIG no-no!) They are made from a byproduct of wheat production and are 100% natural and biodegradable. They don't get soggy like paper straws and are perfect for both cold and hot drinks.
We made sure to oversee the entire manufacturing process from start to finish: harvesting, chopping, cleaning, drying, sanitising and packing. Rest assured that every single straw has our green stamp of approval.
I had so much fun getting to meet the ladies who have been handcrafting our straws from the very beginning. It warms my heart to think about the difference our business is making to the lives of these individuals (and it's all because of you!) They emphasised how they weren't at all a factory. They were merely a small village, made of families and friends. So let's all raise a glass to a cleaner, greener future for all of us!
