Brilliantly bonkers for bamboo

 

For starting meaningful, serious conversations in a light-hearted way through the simple bamboo straw.

Melissa Lam, better known as Bamboo Straw Girl, runs a social enterprise by the same name. She aims to start difficult conversations about the urgency of environmental action through the simple bamboo straw. To date, Bamboo Straw Girl has replaced almost 3 million disposable plastic straws and empowered a dozen independent South East Asian makers through full-time employment or an additional stream of income. “When you consider a bamboo straw, you start to think about more than just straws. We hope to inspire people to consider their connection to and responsibility for their planet,” she says.
