Food Service Operators – Our largest customers only offer paper straws upon request. Our experience demonstrates that overtime customers will become accustomed to not receiving a straw with their beverage purchase. This business practice reduces an operator’s cost of goods sold and reduces waste in the planet while influencing consumer behaviors that are environmentally responsible.
Consumers– The best solution for the planet is not to use a straw at all. However, we believe that paper straws are the preferred solution over using plastic straws or even biodegradable PLA (Poly Lactic Acid) biodegradable straws if a straw is required. If your restaurant, bar or eatery offers a plastic straw with your beverage, reject the plastic straw and opt to use no straw. However, if a straw is required for your beverage, please ask your food service operator for a paper straw.
