The most impactful reason for paper drinking straws is for the sake of the planet and future generations. The ABC’s War on Waste team has estimated that 10 million straws a day is not unfeasible for Australian straw usage, and may even be an underestimation.
Normally, paper straws take 1-2 months to compost. Home composting makes great organic matter to feed to your veggies and reduces your carbon footprint too.
Our Raw Paper Straws are made from 3 ply premium grade paper sourced from managed plantations and are carbon neutral, recyclable, commercially and home compostable.
The good news!
When you have finished with your paper straw, you can toss it in the compost pile instead of the bin. There, it will break down naturally, instead of creating more waste to landfill.
