A sustainable and eco-friendly product, reducing the demand for plastics.

The Tovi Bamboo straw is one of the few truly biodegradable and reusable products that allow you to completely replace plastic or metal straws. They are 100% organic and completely free from chemicals throughout the entire production process. 

The bamboo used by Tovi grows naturally (often alongside a coconut plantation) and without the need for harmful fertilisers, pesticides or even irrigation, therefore growing it doesn’t contribute to unwelcome impact on the environment.

Tovi Bamboo Straw

Bamboo straws have a low carbon footprint and are home compostable so when you’re done, simply dig them into your veggie patch or throw it in your compost pile.

Each one of our bamboo straws is handmade from a single piece of organic bamboo which is sustainably harvested by our local artisans from wild plantations across Sri Lanka.

Rice Bag Straw Holder

We work with local seamstresses to develop a unique, upcycled and fit for purpose bag for our bamboo straws which is made from discarded rice sacks. Beyond looking nice – the problem we needed to solve was to provide a waterproof bag for used (wet) straws to be placed into once they have been used. While cotton bags look great, they simply don’t stop leakage into your bag – hence not very practical!

Tovi upcycled straw bags are a simple design – that eliminates the leakage issues but also creates a purposeful use for used rice sacks – which has historically been dumped in landfill or burned.
