About SIPS

Did you know that most plastics do not decompose, or biodegrade, when we toss them out? Plastics can stay in our landfills for hundreds of years. In the ocean, plastic floats around in small pieces, known as microplastics, that can poison our wildlife and harm the environment. As lovers of the ocean, it has always been appalling the amount of trash that washes up on shore, in particular plastic straws. After researching, it was found that wheat straws are an eco-friendly and all-natural alternative. SIPS understands that straws are only one part of the problem. However, we do believe that we can help to become part of the solution. 

Wheat Straws

Wheat straws are made from the stalk that is left over after wheat grains have been harvested. The wheat stalks are typically treated as waste. In some countries, farmers burn the stalks, contributing to air pollution. Instead, our farmers are using the excess stalk to transform them into 100% biodegradable, all-natural wheat straws that are gluten-free and plastic-free.

Wheat Straws

According to National Geographic, it is estimated that 3.2 billion plastic straws polluted our beautiful beaches in 2019. We also found that most paper straws are not compostable or recyclable, as promised. It is projected that by 2050, there will be more plastic than fish in our oceans. Therefore, it is time to make a change.
