A sip for Mother Nature.
Ending plastic waste, one drink at a time.
Little Green Panda (LGP) was founded on the belief that single use products shouldn't be "made to last".
Our founder, Manon Beauchamp-Tardieu, knew more than 8 million tones of plastic are dumped into our ocean every year. That equals to 4 million Wrangler Jeeps: 4,500LBs/2000kgs — every. Single. Year. Overwhelmed by where to begin, she decided to tackle the plastic straw crisis first.
The journey of re-imagining disposable plastic in a sustainable way is a long path, and straws are first on our list of accomplishments.
Looking to the ground.
At Little Green Panda, we want to do better. That means asking ourselves, every day, how we can improve - by adjusting our small daily actions to reshape the future of our planet.
Did you know - wheat straws were the OG of straws? They were used in the 1800s before paper straws were invented!
With humble beginnings since August 2018, Little Green Panda has grown exponentially. Our plant-based straws are now supplied to businesses and individuals, both locally and worldwide (over 5 Million!)... And we’re not stopping there because innovation never ends!
We’re passionate about empowering businesses to take a stand against single use plastic. We have personally overseen all aspects of our manufacturing and supply chain operations in person and purposely work with independent farmers rather than factories. Our sustainable straws are not only show stoppers, but also handcrafted with love by small-scale female farming communities in remote areas around the world where employability is scarce. So raise your glasses (NOT plastic cups) with us and let’s cheers to a cleaner, greener and plastic-free future!
Thanks to you, our team has grown from 1 to 3, we’ve been able to keep over 5 million plastic straws so far (December 2020) out of landfills and oceans and get to support our farmers and female artisans a second source of income to their families.
