There is a movement in the food service industry to reduce plastic waste, and straws are one of the biggest causes of plastic waste. Because plastic straws are not biodegradable, many restaurants are choosing not to use straws at all. This trend is starting to spread because not only are plastic straws less environmentally friendly, they are also wasteful. Fortunately, there are many eco-friendly straw options to choose from to serve your hospitality needs.
Straws can be me made from more eco-friendly materials both for single-use and for reusable purposes. Reusable straws can be made out of stainless steel or aluminum, and many companies are offering these as additional purchases so that customers can take them home and always have a straw that they can use. Single-use straws are made of bamboo stalks that take very little work to process into straws. Bamboo grows extremely quickly and is often hollow making them a natural choice for making straws.
We offer a variety of colors and styles to choose from as well as wrapped or unwrapped. Some styles include our durable and reusable bamboo, reed straws, wheat straws, and paper straws. There are also a variety of straw types including smoothie straws, cocktail straws, and standard straws. Most of the straws we sell are hot and cold compatible as well as freezer safe. Our straws are perfect for weddings, birthday parties, or food service in a restaurant.
