If plastic drinking straws have become the bane of your life then say hello to the Natural Drinking Straw – our new sustainable paper drinking straw. Stronger than your average paper product, these Natural beauties are robust enough to stay mush-free long after the last sip, despite being made of paper and paper only.
Showcasing a natural paper finish, this product supports an earth-kind presentation and unlike some PLA products, which consumers can mistake for an oil-based plastic item, the Natural straw looks eco-friendly from first glance to reassure your customers of your environmental stance.
"The need for a viable, ecological substitute to single-use use plastics has never been so keenly felt, not least because many single-use plastic products - including straws - may be banned in 2019. With this in mind, and following a growing number of requests from our customers, we are delighted to offer a sustainable paper-based alternative to the plastic drinking straw," commented Jess Lyons at Planglow.
The 20cm Natural Straw is available in boxes of 250 and may be paired with our plastic-free cups to serve smoothies, milkshakes, juices and more. Planglow’s unique bio cups come in 8oz, 12oz and 16oz sizes and in a choice of three branded finishes: rustic Natural, gourmet to-go Gastro and brightly coloured Botanical. These double walled cups are suitable for both hot and cold drinks and have a corn-based, food-safe bio-coating which meets the European composability standard EN13432, this means that the cup may be industrially composted where facilities are available.
