Bamboo Straw Girl

Eco-friendly Essential Items

Company profile

Bamboo Straw Girl is a homegrown Singapore social enterprise that aims to start eco conversations through the simple bamboo straw -- nature’s solution to nasty plastic!

Our founder, Melissa Lam (a.k.a. Bamboo Straw Girl), is a strong green advocate and has engaged schools, organisations and community groups in the movement against single-use plastics. She was inspired to take individual action in the fight against wasteful consumption after spending time hiking and camping in her late teens. Since our incorporation, our company has provided employment opportunities or supplementary streams of income for at least half a dozen South East Asian artisans. 

We were the very first "zero-waste lifestyle" store in Singapore even before “zero-waste” became a buzzword! We aim to be as plastic-free and low-impact as we can, from production to point of sale. We started with just one product -- the bamboo straw -- and now have a full range of lifestyle products to help you on your personal eco journey. It starts small!
