An indigenous sedge grass growing in wetlands around the world, our grass straws are the simplest and most natural alternative to plastic. Having an incredibly fast growth cycle and a production process that uses no chemicals or additives, we believe our straws to be a nearly perfect product. While it might have taken a few million years to develop, it only takes a few months to disappear. Thanks Mother Nature.

At eightysix, we believe that the simplest solutions are often the best ones; especially when it comes to climate change. That’s why we source our straws from small farms that utilize regenerative agriculture - farming that improves the resources of the land rather than depleting them. Our farmers live on the land of their ancestors. Living in harmony with the environment and farming their land using techniques passed down from generation to generation, spanning centuries. The grass itself helps regulate water levels in the area, is home to several protected species, and produces a ton of oxygen with regular harvesting.
