 Black Paper Straws: An Eco-Friendly Option


The voice against the plastic straw is becoming ever stronger and many companies are now pledging to 'Refuse the Straw'. In the UK alone, we use 8.5 billion single use plastic straws every year. Plastic can then take around 500 years to break down, with much of it ending up in landfills and increasingly the marine environment. This is a problem that cannot be ignored. That's why choosing a viable alternative is important — both for the environment and for a customer's perception of your business.  

In light of this, this collection of paper straws is an answer to the market's demand for an environmentally friendly alternative to the ubiquitous plastic straw. These stylish black straws don't look particularly different to their plastic alternatives and importantly are fully recyclable, biodegradable and completely food safe. Unlike lesser paper straws of inferior quality, these straws are actually 3ply thick and have been rigorously tested to ensure that they'll remain in a decent condition way past the average drink consumption time. This resilient, high quality product ensures that customers won't be left with a soggy straw after a just few minutes!

Continuing ‘bad press’ regarding the use of plastic straws and the reprecussions of their disposal on the environment has resulted in many consumers expecting businesses to stock sustainable, safe straws. Fortunately, with this simple switch you can make a big difference.

Paper Straw Strength Test

There has recently been a number of issues reported regarding the strength of some of the paper straws available on the market. To illustrate the quality of our 3ply Black Paper Straws (6mm bore), we decided to put our straws to the test and leave one in a glass of fizzy orange for 45 minutes — well beyond the average time it takes to finish a drink. When it was time to take it out, the straw evidently kept its structural integrity. Unlike inferior alternatives, which become soggy and split, this 3ply paper straw remained intact even after applying pressure.
