A pasta straw company, Stroodles, has launched pasta straws to provide an environmentally friendly solution to the singe-use plastic crisis and rise of greenwashing from the paper straw industry. In comparison to soggy paper and plastic straws, Stroodles are an improvement as they provide greater durability, are flavourless, vegan, 100% biodegradable and are edible raw or cooked after use. A core principle for Stroodles is their ‘drink-easy’ ethos, meaning drinkers don’t has to change behaviour or compromise on drinking experience to do good for the environment. The straws are 23-25 cm long, 0.75cm thick and the pasta straw walls will last over an hour in any one drink and remain flavourless! And they’re biodegradable in hours not generations!

Another alternative for plastic straws which we can add to our list! And we think at least every Italian restaurant should use these stroodles!  

Stroodles | The vision of the founder

Speaking about the inception of his pasta straws, Chief Stroodle and Founder, Maxim Gelmann, says: “While we’re a very logical and effortless solution to the plastic problem, Stroodles is not just a straw company. Our driving goal is to become a vehicle for change and we hope that Stroodles can act as an enabler, subtly inspiring people to question how they consume everyday items. We hope these incremental changes will lead to a ripple effect and create a greater shift in behaviour, one Stroodle at a time.”

Stroodles | Helps create a better world

The concept of conscious consumerism also extends to Stroodles’ business model and operation. The company supports disadvantaged groups at their London office, Stroodles that don’t meet the high-quality standard get donated to food banks and a share of Stroodles’ sales are donated to charities who help fight plastic waste. You can buy stroodles online in a range of package options. For the hospitality industry, Stroodles are also available in bulk orders.
