Plastic straws are banned in several cities because they do not break down in landfills and pose a threat to the environment, wildlife and human health. Although plastic straws are recyclable, they are not usually accepted by roadside recycling programs. Municipalities that do accept plastic straw recycling may have trouble separating them because of inefficient sorting. Even if accepted, most plastic straws are not sent to recycling centers because they are thrown away as garbage. As a result, plastic straws end up as waste or contaminants in landfills. Plastic straws take 500 years to break down; Even then, they don't break down completely. When plastics break down, they break down into smaller pieces over time. Eventually, the plastic breaks down into microplastics (microplastics). Microplastics pollute our ecosystems. Animals, such as fish, eat microplastics as food. Not only is eating plastic bad for fish and other animals, but when humans eat fish, we may also consume microplastics as a result. Consumers are increasingly aware of the negative impact plastic products have on the environment and human health, and are demanding more sustainable choices. The most common environmentally friendly alternative to disposable plastic straws is paper straws.
Paper straws are usually made of wood pulp. High-quality paper straws are made from craft paper, a bio-based, renewable, biodegradable, recyclable, compostable and unbleached material that is ideal for making paper straws.
