NOTE: Due to a temporary PLA film shortage, the compostable PLA inner bags may temporarily be made with plastic.
Our best selling, individually wrapped PHA 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 due to less volume and depth of biomass.
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 18 smaller bags of 250 straws per bag. Also known as "Jumbo Standard" straws, these are your typical soda/water width and standard 7.75" length. For smoothies or milkshakes "Giant" width is ideal. (Coming Soon in two lengths!)
