Coconut straws were born as a new solution to replace plastic straws to improve our living environment in the face of increasing plastic waste. Coconut straws are products made from 100% environmentally friendly fermented coconut water. Therefore, coconut straws have the ability to completely decompose in a short time after being discharged into the natural environment. This has played a big part in reducing the amount of non-biodegradable plastic waste. In addition, used coconut straws can become bio-compost that brings many nutrients to the soil and plants.
