Tell Plastic to Buzz Off with The Manchester Bee Paper Straw


  • 100% recyclable and FSC certified paper straw
  • Emblazoned with the Manchester Bee
  • 3-ply high quality paper
  • Exclusively available from Stephensons

The Manchester Bee Paper Straw was initially founded as the first step of a Greater Manchester initiative to eradicate avoidable single-use plastics in the region by 2020. It is exclusively available from Stephenson's.

Designed in collaboration with the Greater Manchester Combined Authority (GMCA), this sustainable paper alternative is a cost effective option to help any business or individual make positive steps in their environmental responsibility.

The straw is FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) certified, 100% recyclable and at 3-ply, it's super strong, making it the perfect choice for a coke or a cocktail. In addition, each straw is printed with food safe soy-based ink and water-based glue.

As the straw was designed for Manchester, it is fittingly adorned with the Manchester Bee — a symbol of the city's resilience and work ethic. As a business, we have made the decision to donate a percentage from each box sold to the We Love Manchester Charity.

*As part of our initial partnership with the GMCA, we can offer a specially discounted price for hospitality operators. Do please get in touch with us on 0161 483 6256 or to discuss this* 

Size: 8" / 20cm (6mm bore)

The Manchester Bee Paper Straw


The Plastic Free GM Pledge

The Manchester Bee Paper Straw was initially produced as a way to help encourage hospitality operators to commit to a greener Greater Manchester and was only available to signees of the Plastic Free GM Pledge.

Although the straw is now commercially available to anyone, we as a business are still ardent supporters of the pledge, and would ask any business to please consider signing it.

The pledge is not an immediate or forced change in operations, instead it is just a commitment to review practices and make more sustainable choices. Expert guidance is also on hand if required.
