To change the habit of using plastic straws, which not only affect human health but also harm the environment, Eco Friendly Vietnam has produced grass straws as a replacement for plastic straws.
Elephant grass as the raw material for grass straws
Elephant grass, a hollow-stemmed plant, is used to make grass straws due to its outstanding advantages such as being non-toxic, odorless, cost-effective, and easily biodegradable in the environment. Elephant grass typically grows wild in acidic and saline waterlogged areas. The lower part of the grass stem is hard and about 8-10mm in diameter, embedded horizontally in the mud.
The stem grows upright to a height of about 1m, with horizontal nodes and a base consisting of 3-4 sheaths, each about 15-20cm tall. The inflorescence is located at the top of the stem, about 1.5-2cm long and 1cm wide. For a long time, farmers in the Mekong Delta region have known how to use elephant grass to create various unique products such as mattresses, crib pads, and woven baskets.
Production of Eco Friendly Vietnam grass straws
To complete a basic grass straw, several steps are involved, starting with harvesting the elephant grass from the field, followed by washing it with ash water and cutting it into 18-20cm segments. An iron rod is then used to remove the pith inside. The final step is to wash the straw again and soak it in powdered seashell to reduce bacteria before drying it in the sun.
After being thoroughly cleaned, the grass straws are bundled and wrapped in banana leaves. There are two types of straws: fresh grass straws and dried grass straws. Fresh straws can be stored for two weeks in the refrigerator or one week at room temperature. Dried straws are sun-dried for 2-3 days and then oven-dried. Dried grass straws can be stored for six months at room temperature and can be reused multiple times.
Eco Friendly Vietnam emphasizes safety and hygiene throughout the entire process of producing the straws, ensuring the quality of the product from harvesting the grass, washing, cutting, hollowing, to drying, steaming, and sterilizing using machinery.
Currently, the company has successfully produced 35,000 grass straws. The product has gained attention and made a strong impression on many people. Many customers in the hospitality, restaurant, and beverage industries have placed large orders.
