Drinking Straws – as of January 2020, single use drinking straws have been banned in most countries, as they pose a threat to ecosystem and wildlife. A quick switch to Bio compostable straws would be a wise alternative to conventional straws.
PLA BIODEGRADABLE STRAWS
PLA straws hold a number of benefits. Not only are they made from renewable plant-based materials like corn starch or sugar cane but they also require 68% fewer fossil fuel resources to produce than traditional plastic and are commercially compostable to boot. This makes them a more sustainable choice in comparison to their plastic counterparts. They are also sturdy, hold well in drinks and are perceived to be more hygienic as they are a single-use item.
These PLA Straws break down in 12 weeks. After 6 months, 90% of the material will be composted. PLA Straws are designed for use only in cold beverages; they are not recommended for use in hot beverages over 120 F. Because they can be disposed of and composted with food waste, they are a convenient fit for fast-food chains and other restaurants.
