Our individually wrapped PHA 10" straws look and feel just like traditional plastic straws except they are made with PHA, a cutting edge bio-based polymer.
PHA is a superior straw material as it can compost in home compost bins which produce lower temperatures than industrial composting facilities.
PHA is also unique in that is marine degradable and will completely break down in marine environments, should it unproperly end up there. PHA (Polyhydroxyalkanoate) is produced by microbial fermentation of carbon-based feedstocks.
Each case of straws includes 8 boxes of 350 straws per box. Also known as "Jumbo Long" straws which are your standard width straw in a longer 10" length.
