In hospitals, retirement or nursing homes or for people with permanent or temporary physical limitations, drinking straws – especially flexible straws – are a suitable aid to enable the consumption of a beverage or soup even half lying.

Bio Strohhalme GmbH has been producing sustainable drinking straws in Germany / Europe since 2013.

Due to the plastic ban – EU legislation from 2021 – it is becoming increasingly important to use the right sustainable drinking straws that make it easier for patients to drink independently, but still to comply with hygiene regulations.

Due to the stricter regulations caused by the Covid-19 pandemic, institutions such as hospitals, clinics and medical facilities, but also senior citizens and care facilities, are particularly affected.

With our specially developed BIO-LIG drinking straw (for a description, see BIO-LIG below), which we offer as a straight or flexible straw, individually wrapped in paper and heat-resistant up to approx. max. 60-65 ° C (for hot drinks and soups), we have the appropriate, sustainable and ecological tool to

                       avoiding plastic and thus making a positive contribution to the environment and CO2 balance.
