Gippslander Solving The Single-use Plastic Straw Problem

Source: Startup Gippsland

Say hello to Glenn Dawson of Startup Gippsland’s Bass Coast cohort, 2020 Incubator Program.

“The Only Straw” works to solve the problems of single-use plastic straws.

The Only Straw straws are made of wheat, durum flour, and water, and are dried as a pasta. The concept of pasta straws is popular in the UK, the US, and Italy.

The straws can survive in cold liquids for over an hour, and they will not harm the environment, sea-life, or wild animals; breaking down to nothing in a matter of days.

Through education and awareness of the future without single use products, The Only Straw hopes to provide its products to major food chains, hospitality businesses, and the end user.
