Our paper straws are made from a premium 3 ply food grade paper with no waxes, and only 0.6% food grade glue. Made up of natural cellulose fibres that can be universally considered compostable and biodegradable.
Lab test results meet a pass for Council of Europe Resolution AP (2002) test for Heavy Metals and Chemicals, LFGB certification and also to FDA standards. Made in a factory holding BSCI certification, to the highest standards including UV pasteurized before final packing.
Paper straws would be best considered for safety of our marine environment, as Plastic, Oxo-Bio, and even PLA still pose a threat to marine animals if they unfortunately enter this environment due to irresponsible humans, along with plastic bags, plastic and glass bottles, and other rubbish.
This product is made of material from well managed, FSC®-certified forests and other controlled sources.
