Plastic straws are made of…PLASTIC!
They pollute our landfills, affect marine life and are difficult to recycle
We are Ooble.
We make everything that is edible, sustainable and
makes you go ooo!
Try your first zero-waste, flavored straws that you can eat!
Can you live without straws? Yes!
Do you want to? Probably not!
So what can you do? Well, let us do it for you!
Ooble develops zero-waste edible straws.
Yup, you can eat your straws!
They are 100% plant-based, cost effective and come in different flavours.
Just imagine a really hot summer day, sitting on a beach and sipping on a Pina colada. What if you could have a mint-flavoured straw with it? Yum! (Packing your bags already?)
Ooble straws are designed for your everyday use. You can enjoy your ‘on-
the-go’ smoothies or sit down with your shakes and cocktails. Sip into them,
and when you are done just bite into the straws. So you can enjoy your beverage while being kinder to our planet.
We understand that sometimes you just don’t want to eat your straw! Good
news is that even if it is not consumed, it is completely biodegradable.
Apart from the direct use as a straw, we can add in certain nutrients
specifically for certain targeted populations or according to your requirements.
You can be healthier and sustainable while also getting the right dose of

eliminate the use of plastic straws. We want a future with no plastic straws and only edible straws.
We are Ooble and we want to make edible straws the next #foodhero.
