archana commented on Straws made from leaves

Yes we have tried with saal leaves it works and it is water resistant.I think in India and neighbouring countries it would be great starting place as we are already familiar with the concept .The key factors would be collection of leaves and sewing them together into straw .There are many small scale industries that are available for us in India where the leaves are collected and sewed into plates and cups.All we need to do is ask them to shape it into a straw.I have the flow chart and let me know what you think.
