Made from polyhydroxyalkanoate (PHA), a plant-based plastic derived from canola oil, the straws are BPI-certified compostable and meet the ASTM D6400 standard for compostability. The company also offers a range of cups, containers, plates and bowls, and utensils.
“With demand rising for more sustainable choices, we are committed to offering the best in compostable products,” said Nicole Tariku, Director of Product Development for Eco-Products. “These innovative straws are heat resistant and durable like conventionally made straws, while still offering flexible composting options.”
“Businesses are increasingly looking for compostable products that perform as well as those made from conventional plastic,” Tariku said. “The addition of these straws gives our customers even more choices in our ever-growing compostable product bundle, which is now over 400 items.”
