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!’
As our movement and product portfolio grows, so too does our commitment to making real change that impacts the planet in a positive way, that doesn’t compromise your drinking or dining experience! Stroodles hope to leave a lasting positive impact, by spreading awareness about the plastic pollution problem in a non-preachy way, and inspiring millions about how fun and easy sustainability can be. Single use? No problem! As long as it’s Stroodles.
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, London Marriott Hotel County Hall, a luxurious hotel located in bustling South Bank, steps away from Westminster Bridge!
Who are Marriott County Hall
Embark on a 5-star getaway to London Marriott Hotel County Hall. Enviably located in Central London, the hotel provides guests with stunning views of the London Eye, Big Ben and Westminster Bridge! Occupying London’s former City Hall, overlooking the Houses of Parliament, the luxury accommodation and event venues embody London's rich history and quintessentially British spirit.
Situated on the banks of the River Thames with spectacular views of the London Eye, Gillray's Steakhouse & Bar is ideally located to enjoy an authentic British dining experience, for lunch and dinner, using ingredients locally sourced from English farms. The bar, famous for its extensive selection of 100+ gins, serves classic and contemporary cocktails (served with Stroodles Pasta Straws!) and a wide selection of beers, wines, and spirits.

Marriott County Hall have been stroodlin’ with us since mid 2019!
Aligned with the UK’s plastic straw ban, plastic straws have been removed from all bars and restaurants at Marriott hotels. This move has resulted in London Marriott Hotel County Hall joining our Stroodles Movement, and offering their customers our famous pasta straws! Gillray's Steakhouse & Bar, their restaurant on the River Thames, serves seared-to-perfection steaks sourced locally from O'Shea's Butchers, and is the perfect place to kick back and relax with a handcrafted cocktail served with a Stroodle Pasta Straw!
