These distressing images made more and more people concerned about how to protect the environment, and businesses are starting to switch to more eco-friendly packaging and utensils.

I know what you’re thinking – what’s so special about paper straws? They’re everywhere!
Well, have you ever had trouble with paper straws? Straws bending or getting smushed up instead of piercing the sealed lid? Going soggy minutes after you start drinking? Say goodbye to these troubles by using our paper straws!
Made with high-quality paper sourced from Sweden, our paper straws are tougher and more durable than regular paper straws. Notice anything different with the sharper end? Our straws have reinforced, tapered ends to make them pierce sealed lids more easily.
Available in solid colour or patterned – contact us for details!
Another common eco-friendly material is PLA, a type of plastic that can be made using plant starch such as corn, cassava or sugarcane pulp.
Since it’s biodegradable, PLA is considered an eco-friendly plastic. Want the transparent look of plastic straws but also want to protect our planet? Our PLA straws are for you!
