Why Choose PLA Straws?
What Are PLA Straws Made Of
PLA straws are made of polylactic acid (PLA), a biodegradable and compostable polymer obtained from renewable resources such as cornstarch, sugarcane, or cassava root. PLA straws are made by an extrusion process using a specialized PLA straw making machine to transform the PLA material into thin tubes trimmed to the proper length to generate PLA straws.

Why PLA Straw Is Better
PLA Straws vs. Paper Straws
Traditional PLA straws have a low melting point, making them unsuitable for hot liquids or soups. After our research, we found that adding PBAT can effectively improve the toughness of modified PLA materials and solve the problem of cracking of PLA straws.
These upgraded straws can withstand temperatures up to 90°C (194°F) while being biodegradable and compostable, making them a more sustainable and environmentally friendly alternative to standard plastic straws for high-temperature applications.
Interinational Compostable Certified
Our PLA biodegradable straw are certified by US BPI & German DIN compostable standard. These certifications ensure that the materials used in the straws are safe for food contact, meet compatibility requirements, and adhere to environmental and social responsibility.
