Crafted Pasta By Emilia's

Wed, Aug 11, 21

The idea of Stroodles Pasta Straws grew from Chief Stroodle, Maxim’s belief that there must be a better way to enjoy your favourite cocktail, fruit juice or smoothie whilst not leaving a footprint on the earth that will take generations to disappear!

Knowing that 4.7 billion plastic straws were used every year in the UK alone, Maxim wanted to make a positive change, and therefore launched Stroodles Pasta Straws to allow people to do good, the easy way! Our pasta straws are flavourless and last 1 hour in cold drinks, and therefore don’t compromise drinking experience. Stroodles allow you to say “Pasta la Vista” to soggy paper straws that turn into mush about 5 minutes after drinking out of them!

Since the launch of our famous pasta drinking straws in 2019, which have since become a global and viral trend, we are now ready to grow our movement and own the eco-tableware category by extending our product range to edible spoons, plates, bowls and cups. At Stroodles our aim is to inspire the world, and show how easy it is to do good, ‘one Stroodle at a time!’

At Stroodles HQ, we couldn't be more proud of the community we've built and that's all thanks to all our fellow Stroodlers, as well as our amazing customers, who are dedicated to helping us save the planet from single use plastic tableware items! In this blog post we want to shine a light on one of our stroodling customers in particular, Emilia’s Crafted Pasta - pasta-bly our favourite Italian restaurant in London, that serves fresh, soul-warming pasta as well as the most delicious Aperol Spritz (served with a Stroodle!).



Who are Emilia’s Crafted Pasta

At Emilia’s they love-soul warming comfort food. Everything they do revolves around the essence of Italian cuisine – freshness and simplicity. They believe Italian pasta should be served in a casual way with the generosity and warm welcome of previous generations. Just as Nonna would have done it! Their pasta is freshly made every morning and cooked with a respect for the tradition and techniques passed down the generations from the cooks who taught them their craft.


They add to that tradition by following the science behind the pairing of pasta shapes with the right sauces, so you get all the delicious flavour in every mouthful. And they make fresh pasta affordable for all to indulge in on a regular basis, just like Italians do. Essentially, they want to bring back memories of that warm tingling feeling in your stomach you got as a child when your Nonna cooked you a delicious bowl of pasta after coming home from playing outside. At Emilia’s, they create happiness in a bowl using only natural, fresh and simple ingredients.

Emilia’s have been stroodlin’ with us since 2019!

Did you know that Emilia's are all for sustainability and helping save the planet?

Here are just a few things that they're doing:

  • Serve their drinks with Stroodles Pasta Straws - the best eco-friendly alternative to plastic straws!
  • They don’t use any gas in their restaurant’s operations. The vast majority of their energy is renewable (90%), and they only use electrical appliances (such as induction hobs) for cooking!
  • They have reduced the amount of plastic used in our operations and are proud to say that we have eliminated all unnecessary single-use plastics from our restaurants. They’re also working with their suppliers to find new solutions for their remaining single use plastics.
  • Ensure the life of any plastic bags arriving at their operations is maximised by reusing them. Ensure all their packaging for takeaway and deliveries is now 100% recyclable/compostable.
  • Ensure every glass bottle and piece of cardboard is separated from other waste and recycled.
  • Ensure all their guests are encouraged to take home any uneaten food to reduce waste.
