How to process reeds into straws

Since most of the current straws are made of plastic materials, their degradation degree is not high, and it is not easy to recycle, and the manufacturing process is dyed, which is also harmful to human health.

In some cases, using natural wild reeds as a new material to make straws has inherent environmental advantages and is extremely easy to degrade after being used.

Regardless of the long-term or short-term analysis, the environmental pollution after use is almost negligible.

There are already paper straws in the market, but its weakness is that paper straws tend to soften when exposed to water. This is especially true when drinking beverages with higher temperature. Reed straws circumvent these problems.

Raw materials

Reeds grow in a vast area and are common in the north and south poles of China. This provides favorable conditions for the collection and purchase of raw materials. Reduce the cost of raw material collection and transportation.

We all know the growth structure of reed. It is a hollow plant with a nodular appearance. Each node is about 20-30 cm. The height of a single plant is about 3 meters. The diameter of the lower part can reach 1 cm. , The middle torso is mostly around 0.6 mm. It is the natural straw given by nature.


1. Collect qualified reeds and collect and purchase according to the requirements of straw craft products.

2. Processing in sections, the bottom of the torso of the reed is the thickest, the chest is the second, and the top is the thinnest. Divide them and keep the available parts for grading processing.

3. According to the process requirements, match the suitable part for further cutting. For example: Used as a straw for a cup of porridge in a breakfast shop, we can choose a thicker root. The milk tea straws can be selected from medium to small.

4. The semi-finished straws are cleaned and disinfected, packaged and sealed, and finally distributed and transported.
