Aardvark Straws

WHAT MAKES AARDVARK STRAWS A GREAT OPTION?

BACKYARD COMPOSTABLE

Made from sustainable FSC/SFI papers, every Aardvark® product is eco-friendly and compostable, with the ability to decompose in just 30-60 days depending on the product.  Our products have been independently certified as compostable here.

MARINE DEGRADABLE

Aardvark® paper straws are as safe for all animals as they are for you and me. 5 Gyres did a study showing that they will break down in 6 months in a marine environment. You can see that study on page 21

DURABILITY

Aardvark’s paper straws are manufactured using an average of 33% more material than imported straws and are specifically made not to disintegrate or get soggy and fall apart. In most cases with normal use, our paper straws will last for 2-3 hours. They are specifically made to hold up for hours under normal use and not disintegrate.

INGREDIENTS

All of the paper that goes into making Aardvark Straws are FSC/SFI certified, so they are sustainably sourcing their paper. Aardvark is the only paper straw company to use 100% FDA and EU food-grade approved materials and the only FDA and EU-approved manufacturer of paper drinking straws. Consumers can trust that Aardvark® paper straws are safe for all family, friends, and guests to use.

CORPORATE PHILOSOPHY

 

Aardvark paper straws were re-introduced in 2007, in response to a growing anti-plastic movement. Restaurants, hospitals, and other services industries, the main buyers of plastic straws in the US, were forced to look for more sustainable, eco-friendly options. Aardvark Straws are also only Made in the USA and have less of a carbon footprint because they are not being shipped from overseas.
