How long will my bamboo straw last?
The lifespan of a washable and reusable bamboo straw will depend on its frequency of use. It can, therefore, vary from a few months to a few years. If it is used several times a day and this every day, in a bar or restaurant, for example, the frequency of washing will lead to a logical decrease in its lifespan. It is estimated that a restaurant bar will have to change bamboo straw two to three times a year. At home, if the straw is used more punctually and kept in a dry place, it can last a few years.
