Manchester Bee Paper Straw
The Manchester Bee Paper Straw was initially founded as the first step of a Greater Manchester initiative to eradicate avoidable single-use plastics in the region. It is exclusively available from Stephenson's.
Designed in collaboration with the Greater Manchester Combined Authority (GMCA), this sustainable paper alternative is a cost effective option to help any business or individual make positive steps in their environmental responsibility.
The straw is FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) certified, 100% recyclable and at 3-ply, it's super strong, making it the perfect choice for a coke or a cocktail. In addition, each straw is printed with food safe soy-based ink and water-based glue.
As the straw was designed for Manchester, it is fittingly adorned with the Manchester Bee — a symbol of the city's resilience and work ethic. As a business, we have made the decision to donate a percentage from each box sold to the We Love Manchester Charity.
