The Most Eco-Friendly Straw
Our sugarcane straws are the perfect biodegradable straw for restaurants, corporate office spaces, and home-use.
Sugarcane (a perennial grass in the genus Saccharum) is the world’s largest crop by production quantity, with 1.9 billion tons produced in 2018. Sugarcane has immense potential as a renewable source of plant fibers (cut at the base for harvest and grown back again).
Our environmentally friendly sugarcane straws are made with 100% plant-based ingredients using real sugarcane fibers that will grow back over time. They are biodegradable, certified compostable, and reusable which makes them one of the most eco-friendly straws available to purchase to date.
What's the difference between compostable vs biodegradable?
'Biodegradable' means an object can be broken down by living things, while 'compostable' means it will turn into compost. All composting is biodegradation, but not all biodegradation is composting.
Are sugarcane straws home compostable?
Yes! Our sugarcanes are OK Compost HOME certified. This means our straws will compost at lower temperatures, so they can go into the compost heap in your garden at home, hence the title "HOME"
Straws Made from Plants
Sugarcane straws are made from the byproduct of the sugarcane refining process
Instead of throwing away or incinerating leftover sugarcane bagasse (fibers), we rescue, recycle, and transform what would have been agricultural and commercial waste into eco-friendly, compostable, biodegradable straws. This reduces environmental impact and prevents unnecessary landfill waste by employing the principles of a circular economy.
Certified Biodegradable by BPI
All our products have been certified by Biodegradable Products Institute (BPI). Compostable, no chemicals added. Other certifications include FDA-Approval, EU No.10/2011, and more!
Sugarcane Straw FAQs
Questions we get asked often
What are your Sugarcane Straws made of?
Our Original (V1) Sugarcane Straws are made of sugarcane fibers, known as bagasse, and binders such as polylactic acid (PLA) which we derive from sugarcane and cassava. Our Version 2 (V2) of Sugarcane Straws do NOT contain any polylactic acid (PLA). When requesting information or quotes, please note which version you desire.
Are your Sugarcane Straws compostable?
Yes. Our Sugarcane Straws are certified to be 100% compostable. Please visit our Certifications page for all of our certifications and registrations with independent third parties.
How are your Sugarcane Straws better than paper straws?
Our Sugarcane Straws will not become soggy like paper straws, has a smoother texture, and will not impart any paper taste or flavor. Our Sugarcane Straws do not have any coatings and we do not use any dyes — which are common characteristics in paper straws.
Why do your Sugarcane Straws come the way they do?
Retailers have storage, packaging, and shipping requirements we must adhere to. We want you to receive a quality product that is safe and clean to use. Our packaging prevents humidity and dust from affecting the Sugarcane Straws. We are working on an alternative, eco-friendly packaging and shipping materials. If you have suggestions, please contact us and let us know!
