The wooden straw project has been successfully implemented. In order to prevent the odor of the drink, cedar or cypress without any odor is preferred. The wood is cut into 0.15mm thick ultra-thin wood chips, then spirally rolled into a tube, and then cut into a diameter of 4mm , 21 cm long straw
Similar to farmland thinning, the thinning trees are mainly small trees that are cut down to adjust the density of the trees during the planting process. Because it has not fully grown, the trunks are generally thin, and the application market after felling is limited. For a long time, people have made primary school desk table tops from thinned wood, and a total of 10,197 pieces have been donated. The preparation of wooden straws will undoubtedly broaden the space for plucked trees and disaster-stricken trees. In addition to the environmental benefits of replacing plastic products, it also contributes to forest care.
The unit price of disposable wooden straws is tens of yen, which is about 10 times the price of ordinary plastic straws.
