Little Green Panda is an innovative socially responsible company born out of the need to solve the guilty sipping problem. Those pesky plastic straws are harming marine life and sitting in our landfills for centuries. Our mission is to eradicate this problem for both businesses and individuals worldwide through plant-based innovations.
Little Green Panda was formed with the sole purpose of leaving a positive footprint on our environment. We have but one planet and it’s in trouble. Our interest was piqued due to the now overwhelming evidence of human impact on our habitat along with the knowledge that 1/3rd of all rubbish found in our water systems are non-bio degradable plastics.
A supplier of plant-based straws to businesses and individuals worldwide, we originally started with beautiful bamboo drinking straws and our range expanded with the increasing demand. We manufacture our straws with minimal to no plastic.
We work very closely with several farming communities and maintain a socially ethical and cooperative relationship with the locals, providing them with employment and financial assistance to better the lives in these remote villages across Asia.
So far, we have found the solution in natural materials provided by mother nature such as bamboo, wheat & sugarcane.— We are currently experimenting with a few other plant-based materials as well!
We are super proud to be part of the worldwide movement to reduce plastic pollution! Let’s take the first step towards a plastic-free life together and sip sustainably! Cheers!
