Everything You Need to Know About Our New Eco-Friendly Straws

We are happy to introduce a new line of eco-friendly straws to suit a wide variety of businesses and customer needs. Both of these straw styles are considered eco-friendly alternatives to traditional plastic straws, and have a look and feel that is similar to the plastic styles that customers and restaurants are used to.

Paper Straws

These quality paper straws are made from paper materials but feature a strong and durable design. They are available in jumbo and giant styles, making them ideal for serving slushie’s, smoothies, milkshakes, and other thicker beverages. Unwrapped and individually wrapped styles are sold. Individually wrapped styles are a great option for takeout orders as they keep straws sanitary and clean prior to use. The wrap is also made from paper materials.

One common complaint users may have about paper straws is that they are not sturdy. Our selection of paper straws, unlike traditional paper straws, were made to stand up to any beverage and are guaranteed to keep their shape and form.

PLA Straws

PLA straws are BPI certified compostable in commercial composting facilities and are made from sustainable corn-based plastic. These straws meet the ASTM D6400 which refers to the Standard Specification for Labeling of Plastics Designed to be Aerobically Composted in Municipal or Industrial Facilities. Available in both jumbo and giant sizes, they are another great option for sipping thicker beverages and are sold in unwrapped or individually paper wrapped styles.

These quality straws have the look, feel, and strength of a plastic straw. Unlike plastic straws they have compostable and eco-friendly properties that allow them to stand out from the competition.
