What is Wheat Straw?

what is wheat straw?

We sell quite a few products made from "wheat straw", so it's time to explain what it's all about.

What is Wheat Straw?

Wheat straw is the stalk left over of wheat grains harvest. It is commonly treated as waste. As such, farmers in some countries burn it, which contributes to air pollution. More recently, people realized that these stalks have value, as they can be reclaimed and used as raw material to make products, similar to plastic, but way more eco-friendly.

What are the benefits of Wheat Straw "plastic"?

  • It does not require virgin forests to be cut down, as it can just be reclaimed as the by-product of wheat grains harvest
  • It is compostable and thus not harmful to the environment
  • It can be used to make high quality, lightweight, durable, food safe products
  • By using wheat straw, the material does not go to waste and is instead used as raw material, preventing the burning and polluting of the air
  • Usually, production facilities are in wheat-rich areas, cutting down on transportation
  • Disposal in a composting facility can help the composting process due to the fibrous nature of wheat straw

What are the benefits of products made from Wheat Straw "plastic"?

  • Microwave safe and freezer safe

 What are the downsides of Wheat Straw "plastic"?
