Bliss ditches plastic straws

Bliss Bakery is the latest Okanagan business to join the no-straw movement.

Bliss will be offering customers a choice of a re-usable bamboo straw with their cold beverage in an effort to eliminate plastic straws.

Bliss is making the switch to paper straws and now offers the option of organic, re-usable bamboo straws.

“When we recently learned that the recyclable straws we have been using are not actually recyclable in the Central Okanagan Regional District, we knew we had to offer some alternatives” said Darci yeo, owner of Bliss Bakery. “We have all seen enough pictures of turtles with a straw up their nose, or floating islands of plastic, we want to be part of the change to make things better.”

For guests that are wishing to make a conscious effort to reduce their waste bamboo straws offer an alternative to throw-away straws.

The straws are directly sourced and are grown pesticide-free in an organic environment in the north of Bali and are crafted by local Balinese artisans. They are carefully selected taking into account the size and age of each bamboo tree, and are cut accordingly to ensure the safety and well-being of the plant itself.

The bamboo straws are sourced through SinFreeStraws, a non-profit organization based in Hong Kong focused on removing single use plastics from the environment.
