With the drop in popularity of plastic, there has been a rising interest in eco-friendly alternatives. One such alternative is the use of paper straws made from bamboo. These straws are more sustainable than most other types of straws and do not add to the ocean’s pollution level.
"Bamboo paper stalks" (known as Bambuspapirstilker in the Norwegian language) are a great way to reduce waste and help conserve resources. They are made from renewable bamboo, which helps protect the environment. Here are some of the benefits of using bamboo straws:

Unlike plastic straws, bamboo paper straws are 100% biodegradable. This means that they'll break down over time and eventually disappear into the environment. Plus, they don't take up any space in landfills, which is great news if you're conscience-bound about your environmental impact.
Bamboo paper straws aren't just environmentally friendly; they're also cost-effective. Not only do they degrade quickly, but they're also a lot cheaper to produce than plastic straws. That means that you can save a lot of money by using bamboo paper straws instead of plastic ones.
They are easy to recycle.
You can use bamboo paper straws a limited number of times before recycling them. The reason for this is that they're less porous than plastic and thus cannot hold in as much liquid during the recycling process.
They're easy to carry around.
Trying to fit all those plastic straws in your bag? Yeah, that's gonna be a pain in the ass. But you won't have that problem with bamboo paper straws, which is why they're so popular among travelers and backpackers.
