A sustainable alternative to plastic

Billions of disposable straws are consumed every week, and unfortunately, many of them end up in wrong places. If nothing changes, there will be more plastic waste than fish in our oceans by 2050.

We are introducing the marine biodegradable Sulapac straw made from non-toxic and sustainably sourced materials. The straw’s renewable material content is maximized, and the straw is 100% biodegradable and microplastic-free. Sulapac straw complies with the European food contact material legislation. The material is a drop-in solution for plastic straw manufacturers and has been tested successfully with multiple production lines.

If a Sulapac straw ends up in the ocean, it doesn’t harm the ecosystem. Naturally occurring micro-organisms can digest and transform it into CO2, H2O and biomass, so that even whales keep smiling.
