    What is paper straw?

    Paper straw is an environmentally friendly alternative to the traditional plastic straw. It is made entirely or primarily from paper, making it biodegradable and compostable. The concept behind paper straws is to reduce plastic waste and its harmful impact on the environment.

    Plastic straws, which are commonly used in restaurants, cafes, and fast-food chains, contribute to pollution and harm marine life when they end up in oceans and waterways. They take hundreds of years to decompose and can break down into smaller microplastics, which can be ingested by marine animals and eventually make their way into the human food chain
