The Bamboo Straw Girl shop is an earth-minded lifestyle store focussed on a conscious way of living. We send good vibes and nature-inspired products to you from the Equator - Singapore!
Mel is the "Bamboo Straw Girl" -- better known by most as "bamboo girl" / "miss bamboo" / "bamboo". This shop started as a personal project in 2014 to start conversations about eco habits and single-use plastics through the simple bamboo straw -- nature's solution to nasty plastic!

Bamboo Straw Girl was the first zero-waste focussed lifestyle shop in Singapore, aiming to be entirely plastic-free and low-impact 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 :)

We work directly with independent South East Asian makers to create our products. There is a focus on waste-reduction -- our products are all low-impact, with little to no by-products or discarded materials in the production process. We also repurpose materials where we can. Our popular batik strawkeepers and batik bulk bags, for example, are hand-stitched from fabric scraps that would otherwise be sent to the landfill or incinerator.
We believe that using all-natural products is a meditation on our connection to our land, and we hope to share this consciousness with all our customers and clients.
