Recyclable and compostable paper straws added to the BioPak range

Plastic straws suck. Among the top 10 debris items, single-use plastic straws have a useful life of about 20 minutes, and after that they end up in the environment.

Most of the time, plastic straws end up in waterways where they are ingested by wildlife. Global movements to ban plastic straws have raised awareness of the issue, and while many companies and consumers support the ban, there are still times where consumers prefer to use a straw. So, to lower the impact on the environment, we now offer BioStraws made from FSC® certified paper.

BioStraws features

Our new BioStraws come in lots of colours and are available in three sizes – Cocktail (4.5x120mm), Regular (6x197mm) and Jumbo (10x197mm) – and in lots of colours. Plus, we’re using premium, extra strength three-ply paper to ensure the straws maintain their integrity while being used. The total paper weight of the three layers is 350gsm (135gsm + 135gsm + 80gsm).

As well as being made from FSC® certified paper sourced from managed plantations, our straws are 100 percent carbon neutral. Plus, as a paper product, they can be disposed of in home composting systems, or recycled in co-mingle recycling bins.

We’re proud to support and promote the arts community with the Art Series BioStraws, featuring the work of artists who explore environmental themes at the core of their practice. This range will feature up to three different artwork per carton.

These beautiful designs will delight and engage your customers with this series that looks at sustainability issues from what is involved in building a house, to the beauty of Australian bush flowers, or the urban environment.
