Throughout our development as a dive center, as we were building ourselves, we have spent a great deal of time thinking of the best ways that we can protect the environment, Mother Nature. We have done what many would call research and development so out of this R&D came this great concept of how we can bring into our daily operations and lives reusable materials that eventually fade into nature itself.
That is how we started thinking of bamboo and its benefits. It is natural, in its natural form it doesn’t hurt anybody, manipulating it in a natural way again doesn’t bring any risk and the biggest concept of all, it’s reusable in many circumstances. These were our main thoughts at the base of what we wish to create with bamboo.
As such, the first thing that came in mind, were straws. We have all seen the numerous videos on Youtube, Vimeo, Facebook and the list goes on, how countless marine animals suffer due to our use of plastic and specifically in our discussion, plastic straws. Let us remember the horrifying video of the turtle with the plastic straw being pulled out of its nose, shall we ?
Anyway, we have managed with great experience and a lot of failures in our experiments to develop the best bamboo straw that we could get. But of course, that this is not the only aspect of it. A bamboo straw is just a bamboo straw, many can order it around the world. However, we developed a hand made technique for these bamboo straws meaning we have our own eco friendly private production line for these bamboo straws we use daily.
We have no machinery, we use no plastic, we have only reusable materials for the production line itself. Further more, this extended our perspectives to further environment friendly developments which we will not disclose immediately but we will present them happily in the very near future.
