While plastic straws are usually made from recyclable plastics, their size and shape make it nearly impossible to recycle. Straws are long and slender, making it difficult to fit through recycle sorter machines, instead ending up in the landfill or worse. Our compostable straws are fully biodegradable in commercial compost facilities and marine degradable. We offer two types of compostable straws:
- Paper Straws: We carry straws made from FSC Certified paper in a variety of colors and sizes.
- PLA Bioplastic Straws: Made with corn-based bioplastic PLA that is compostable, non-toxic and as strong as traditional plastic.
