About us
We're taking straws back to it's roots

StrawTraderz was born from two nature-loving travellers who were shocked to witness the drastic consequences of plastic pollution around the world. Enough was enough! As millennials, Arjan Drost and Nick Sijmens firmly believe that if you want to fix a problem, you have to offer a solution.

 

 “Plastic waste is a massive global epidemic that’s threatening our world, and we, as citizens of the world, need to act now”.

 

Once back from their travels, the mission to find natural straws began! They tried and tested a variety of straws before running into wheat, reed and bamboo straws. Bingo! A strong, naturally sustainable, biodegradable, and affordable alternative to plastic straws had been discovered. And the best part? Strawtraderz straws can be recycled back into nature and serve as a nutrient for our soils. It’s a win-win situation!

 

Since their inception, StrawTraderz purpose has been to educate, support, and inspire individuals and businesses to make the switch to reduce the devastating effects that single-use plastic pollution is having on our planet. It’s time to bring back straws made from natural material to make our beloved Mother Earth a cleaner and greener place.
