Our Story

Suck On That is a social enterprise founded in Cambodia in 2017, with the initiative to promote the use of bamboo straws as an alternative to plastic.

Single-use plastic straws are highly wasteful and unnecessary products that have detrimental impacts on the planet. Plastic is not biodegradable, it simply breaks down into smaller pieces over long periods of time.

A plastic straw has a longer lifespan than a human, despite its average 20-minute use.

A large portion of discarded plastic straws ends up in our oceans, making it one of the top 10 collected items during beach clean-ups.

We strive to make plastic straws history by offering a sustainable, affordable and eco-friendly alternative – Suck On That bamboo straws.

By joining us in our mission you or your businesses has the opportunity to become more environmentally and socially responsible.

Our bamboo is sustainably grown in a rural Cambodian village, south of the capital of Phnom Penh, where our producers make the bamboo straws by hand.

We operate in remote areas to provide jobs to less privileged communities in order to stimulate a better quality of life for the villagers.

We are passionate about supporting Cambodian villagers through fair employment and ensuring a safe working environment.
