Chris and Jamie, the co-founders of Jungle Straws, met by chance in 2016 whilst travelling through Mexico. Two Brits with a mutual passion for travel, they quickly became friends and bonded over their love for exploration and their shared goal to make a positive difference in the world.
Having travelled to a combined total of over 73 countries, they had each witnessed first-hand the damage caused by single use plastic across the globe. Their vision was to create an ethical and sustainable business that would make it easy for others to reduce their plastic use and to be part of the wider movement towards a plastic-free future. After a year of brainstorming, lots of research, and multiple trips to the Vietnamese countryside, Jungle Straws was born.
Ever since its inception, Jungle Straws has aimed to support, educate, and inspire individuals and businesses to make the switch to reusable and sustainable alternatives to plastic. Chris and Jamie work closely with their Vietnamese manufactures and designers to capture the essence of their craft and to ensure the entire business is built on ethics, equality and transparency. Jungle Straws is proud to be a zero waste company, with a growing range of products that focus on style, sustainability and practicality, helping to change habits and make a positive difference one sip at a time.
