Frequently Asked Questions
WHEAT STRAW PRODUCTS
What exactly is Wheat Straw?
Wheat straw is the stalk left over after wheat grains are harvested. Traditionally, it has been treated as a waste. In some countries, farmers burn it, contributing to air pollution and creating a public health hazard. However, these stalks still have value. This material can be used to make wheat straw products.
Are wheat straw plates toxic?
No, they are safe for kids and adults because wheat straw plates are non-toxic and 100% BPA free.
How long does wheat straw plastic last?
First, this material is entirely biodegradable. In your home compost, it takes 3 to 6 months to fully compost, but using a city program, that time is lowered to 1 or 2 months. It's renewable and sustainable. Since these plastic products are completely natural, they can be decomposed and used as fertilizer.
Are wheat straws durable?
As with many fibrous plants, wheat straw is a strong and durable alternative for making paper and other products. As it decomposes at a rate like paper, wheat straw plastic leaves behind no toxic material, so the compost can be used for future plant growth.
Are wheat straw plates microwavable?
Yes, Wheat straw products are microwave and dishwasher safe.
Can the straws go into the compost bin?
Of course. They are made of 100% wheat, so are compostable.
Are the straws suitable for any type of drink?
Cocktails. Coffee. Orangeade. Tap water. Sports drinks. Milkshakes. Gin and tonic or your Bloody Mary. Stir them in what you want. A perfect sip guaranteed! We don't recommend drinking a thick (milk)shake with these straws.
ORGANIC PHONE CASE COLLECTION
Is the material printed?
No, it is a real hand-picked natural material, then carefully dried and pressed before cutting and applying it to the case.
Is the material water-resistant?
Yes, the material is oleophobic, which means it does not absorb water but is designed to absorb our organic scent essences.
What about durability and scratch resistance, it looks fragile?
The material is coated with an advanced sugar-based resin and protects the material. Slight signs of wear and discoloration can appear over time, but that is normal like with any natural material.
How long does the scent last?
It lasts from 1 month to 3 months, depends on outside factors, while intensity will decline. You can refresh the scent with our completely natural scent refreshers with one application for up to a week. Please contact us if you are interested.
Can the materials fall off?
As you know all our cases are made of natural materials and those can deteriorate over time. Also, for us to keep the materials and feel of the cases natural we do not use finishing coats that would prevent that from happening, because they are toxic. So, yes over time some materials and particles can fall off the case, but the fallout should not be extensive, if too much of a material is falling out on your case, please contact us. We need your feedback so we can improve our products.
Are the materials organic or sustainable?
Yes, our wood collection is FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) harvested, so the whole supply chain from the forest to us is known. The Organic collection is made from completely organic and sustainable materials from nature.
WOOD PHONE CASE COLLECTION
What is the difference compared to the wood cases from others?
Our wood cases are made from special or rare wood species carefully selected from around the world. We also hand oil the wood with organic oil, so it still breaths and gives a unique feeling, while if the wood is shiny and closed with lacquering it is closed the same as plastic.
Can the wood peel off the case?
No, the wood should not peel off the case. If that happens, please contact us. The wood is firmly placed on the case and should not fall off.
Can water damage the case?
As you know our wood is all-natural and in nature, wood expands and shrinks depending on the humidity it's in. So, too much humidity or contact with a lot of water can expand the wood and it can bubble up.
Is the surface of the wood protected?
The surface of the wood hand oiled and protected. Which makes the wood oleophobic to a certain extent (read the answer above).
BIODEGRADABLE PHONE CASE COLLECTION
Is the case bulky?

Is the camera on the back well protected?
Yes, it is. The older versions of the biodegradable cases have a slight indent in the camera area, so the camera is never touching the surface you're putting your phone on.
