How are the bamboo straws made? Is it sustainable?
SuckIN bamboo straws are procured from dried bamboo of a sustainably super fast growing bamboo species native to North East India.

It is absolutely safe to use by children and senior citizens alike. The edges of the steel and bamboo straws are smoothened to prevent it from cutting skin. We recommend to use our straws for children above 2+ years of age.
How do I care for my SuckIN straws?
We reccomend storing the straws in the muslin pouch in a dry place. Steel straws would develop some scratches and loose their lustre over time hence keeping them wrapped in a soft cloth would help preserve the surface for longer. Bamboo straws should be kept in a dry place to prevent any mould from growing on it. SuckIN straws should be cleaned regularly.
