Artisan Impact: Vietnam Team, Reusable Gear
This team of 50 artisans, 90% women, are making our best-selling reusable bamboo utensils and straws. Organic bamboo is cut (don't worry, it grows back speedy quick!), cleaned, and measured into the size of the straws. They use a little drill-type tool to hollow out and clean the bamboo, which is later treated with thin layer of cashew oil. It's a sustainable process from start to finish!
