Black Paper Straws: An Eco-Friendly Option


In the UK alone, it was estimated that we were using up to 8.5 billion plastic straws every single year. Plastic products can take around 500 years to break down — with much of this ending up in landfills and the marine environment. Something had to be done... 

In response came the October 2020 ban on single use plastics, which included the supply of plastic straws. However, straws continue to be an integral part of hospitality drink service. Choosing a viable alternative is important — both for the environment and for customer's perceptions of your business.  

Our collection of paper straws is THE answer to demand for an environmentally friendly alternative to the formerly 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!

Consumers now expect businesses to stock sustainable straws. They also expect something that won't fall apart in their cocktail. Fortunately, with this simple switch you can tick both boxes!

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.
