Plastic straws, despite their small size, can cause serious harm to the environment when used in large quantities. With the desire to change the habit of using plastic straws that not only affect human health but also harm the environment, Eco Friendly Vietnam came up with the idea of using eagle grass to create alternative grass straws to replace plastic straws.

Enhancing the value of eagle grass

eagle grass, also known as bulrush or cattail, belongs to the family Typhaceae. It grows wild throughout the Mekong Delta region, with a tough and thick stem measuring about 8-10 mm in diameter, lying horizontally in the mud. The eagle grass stem stands upright at a height of about 1 meter, with horizontal nodes and a base consisting of 3-4 layers, reaching a height of 15-20 cm. The inflorescence is located at the tip of the stem, measuring about 1.5-2 cm in height and 1 cm in width. The fruiting body is about 3-4 mm tall. The stigma splits into two and the flowers bloom all year round. Eagle grass usually grows in areas with acidic and saline waterlogged soil.

Under the skillful hands of farmers, eagle grass has been used to create many unique products such as mats, cradle linings for lulling babies to sleep, packaging for lychees, etc. In addition to traditional products, artistic and decorative products have also been introduced, such as beach travel mats, fashionable handbags, storage trays, waste baskets, decorative lights, etc. These products are popular in the market due to their attractive colors and durability.

Recently, this hollow-stemmed plant has also been used to make straws due to its outstanding advantages, such as being non-toxic, odorless, cost-effective, and easily biodegradable in the environment.

Eagle grass straws “Green” products

To complete a basic eagle grass straw, it goes through several steps:

Harvesting eaglegrass in the fields. Cleaning with ash water and cutting into sections of 18-20 cm. Removing the inner pith. Rinsing again and soaking with powdered seashell to minimize bacteria before drying. Final rinse.

There are two types of straws: fresh eagle grass straws and dried eagle grass straws.

Fresh straws can be stored for up to 2 weeks in the refrigerator and one week at room temperature. Dried straws are sun-dried for 2-3 days and then dried in an oven. Dried eagle grass straws can be stored for 6 months at room temperature and can be reused multiple times.
