The Straw Saga Continues - But There Is a Solution

1:07 pm

Love them or hate them, paper straws come with their benefits. Recently, large corporations such as McDonalds decided to ditch plastic straws and replace them with eco-friendly paper alternatives. The paper straws were set to reduce the amount of plastic waste that the UK produces and instead supply customers with a greener, more easily recycled product.

However, we have since learned that not all paper straws are recyclable, and many of them end up in a landfill. This, obviously, give the paper straws a less positive impact upon our environment.

What Should You Do?

Even though, in this example, paper straws are painted as the ‘bad guy’, not all paper-based products come with such disadvantages. Our Fiesta Green paper straws are constructed from high-quality 3-ply paper and are now certified as compostable (under the BS EN 13432 standard).
Certified compostable goods will break-down within a 12-week timespan with little-to-no negative impact upon the planet.

Paper straws are only the tip of the iceberg. Many commonly-used products still come with negative impacts upon our planet. Going green with a variety of eco-friendly disposables is an ideal way to save our planet and increase your company’s reputation. In our range, you’ll find everything from compostable coffee cups to biodegradable plates.
