Tell Plastic to Buzz Off with The Manchester Bee Paper Sip Straw

- Emblazoned with the Manchester Bee
- Perfect size for cocktails and mixed drinks
- 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. Since launch, it has flown into drinks everywhere from the Etihad to the Manchester Christmas Markets.
Now, a new straw joins the hive — The Manchester Bee Paper Sip Straw! At a neat 5.5” (14cm) with a small bore, this straw is the perfect size for cocktails, mixed drinks and pretty much anything served in a Rocks glass.
This straw may be shorter, but it packs the same sting. Just like its taller colony-companion, the Manchester Bee Sip Straw is 3ply, printed with soy ink and made from food safe, sustainable paper. It’s also FSC certified, 100% recyclable and much stronger than many paper alternatives.
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.

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.
