These classic straws are made from 100% renewable resources, offering you a compostable solution for your cold drink service.
In an industrial composting site, the straws break down in 12 weeks. After 6 months, 90% of the material will be composted.
We love serving them up with iced cocktail in our white enamel mugs, funky milkshakes in our Knickerbocker Glory Glasses and looking super stylish in our masquerade hi-ball glass.
Ideal for kids and grown up parties! Buy small or go large with our multi-case deals, email us for more information!

Industrial Compostability Statement
These straws are certified to be suitable for industrial composting.
Industrial composting differs from composting at home primarily due to the temperature that is achieved. Industrial composting processes must achieve a temperature of 56-60C whereas home composting temperatures will typically be 20-30C.
This higher temperature has the effect of accelerating the biodegradation and disintegration of the material.
Industrial composting sites are growing in number and most of the major waste disposal companies have nationwide composting operations. Additionally the majority of local authorities operate a collection service for compostable waste.
Many foodservice outlets already have established systems for the segregation and collection of food waste for composting and our CPLA products can be processed in conjunction with these but customers should check with their waste services provider to confirm.
