Accessories - Compostable Straws

If you want to reduce your ecological footprint then our straws are a good option.  Unlike traditional straws that are made from non-renewable petroleum based polypropylene (PP), our straws are made from Ingeo™, a biodegradable and compostable plastic made from annually renewable corn.

Not only is Ingeo™derived from annually renewable corn, but it environmentally outperforms every major petroleum based plastic.  Manufacturing of the new Ingeo™ plastic emits 77 percent less CO2 and consumes 56 percent less energy than the equivalent weight of PET.

Our Ingeo™ straws are also 100% biodegradable and compostable.  Therefore to lower your footprint even more and to divert waste from landfills, consider composting used straws in a commercial composting facility.

Note that composting is required for biodegradation.  Our straws will biodegrade in 180 days or less in a commercial composting facility but may take a year or more in a home composting system.  If you would like help with your composting program, please contact us.

Our Ingeo™straws are strong, durable, and great for cold drinks.
