the sustainable alternative
the wheat way
Our tagline, 'The Wheat Way Is the right way' stems from the need to find alternatives to single use plastic for items we use everyday. Replacing these items with those made using sustainable materials is the solution. all of our products are made using sustainable materials, as an example our wheat straws are a viable alternative to plastic straws.
The wheat way is wanting to change the way in which consumers use single use plastic through initiating little changes in daily habits. These small changes will reduce plastic usage and increase your own sustainability leading you towards a more eco friendly life.
what we offer
The Wheat Way only use sustainable materials for our products such as our wheat straws. We use a Bio - degradable farming by-product to ensure the sustainability of the wheat straws. This means our products are all environmentally friendly and our wheat straws, are a viable sustainable alternative to plastic straws. Through using these sustainable materials we hope to help reduce the causes of deforestation through offering viable alternatives to products that lead to deforestation such as products containing palm oil.
During the farming process the wheat grain is the most used product for human consumption and then the 'stem' in this case is used to create our sustainable products such as our wheat straws. Due to the none porous nature of wheat, unlike the alternatives such as paper straws, wheat straws do not become soggy when used. This sets our wheat straws apart from paper straws as this saturation into the straw is largely seen as a negative to paper straws.
Another positive is that the wheat grain contains all of the gluten and the stem itself is gluten free making it perfect for those with a gluten intolerance.
Not only do we offer wheat products but we also offer products made using other sustainable materials such as bamboo. These are ideal materials as they are biodegradable alternatives to plastic and through being biodegradable makes these products zero waste.
As a way to give back, The Wheat Way, donate 10% of our sales to various causes that help improve the environment. We select a cause every month and then donate 10% of the months sales. Not only do you help the environment through buying our sustainable products but you will also be helping causes directly through a donation. Currently we are working alongside Pro-Ocean to help clean our oceans of plastics. Pro-Ocean's target is inline with the ethos behind our sustainable products. Our Wheat Straws are an ideal alternative to Plastic Straws and our Bamboo Cotton Buds are an excellent alternative to plastic cotton buds.
