Sustainable Straws Solution

Why Choose PLA Straws?

PLA is widely used in the field of degradable straws due to its excellent gloss and barrier properties, good biocompatibility, and biodegradability. It needs less energy and does not rely on nonrenewable resources, PLA has a lower carbon impact than typical plastic straws.
It is also considered safe for human consumption because it contains no potentially dangerous chemicals or elements that might leak into drinks. It’s also resistant to bending and softening, making it a good choice for single-use 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.

01 Polymer Extrusion

In this step, the PLA polymer is melted and forced through an extruder where it is mixed and heated until it reaches a molten state.

02 Straw Forming

Molten PLA material is extruded through a specially designed die to form it into the shape of a straw. The mold usually has a circular opening with the desired straw diameter.

03 Cooling and Cutting

After the extruded PLA material leaves the mold, it is rapidly cooled and solidified into a straw shape by water bath or air cooling, and then the continuous straw is cut into individual straw lengths using a cutting machine.

04 Quality Control

Cut PLA straws are subject to quality control inspections, including checking for defects, measuring dimensions, and undergoing strength and durability testing to ensure they meet required specifications

Why PLA Straw Is Better

PLA Straws vs. Paper Straws

Using Experience

Paper straws can get softer or mushy with lengthy usage, and more prone to collapsing or breaking. PLA straws are generally more assertive and less likely to bend or soften with a better mouthfeel.

Environment Friendly

Unlike paper straws, the production process of PLA straws requires less energy and does not require the use of environmentally harmful chemicals such as glue, making them more environmentally friendly.

Effects On the Human Body

PLA straws have no harmful chemicals or ingredients, and are safe and harmless to the human body, while paper straws are usually bonded with glue, and due to bleaching and manufacturing processes, paper straws may contain harmful substances such as formaldehyde.

Cost Angle

With the improvement of production technology and the growth of demand, the cost of PLA straws has decreased. Paper straws are a less expensive alternative to disposable straws, but they are more expensive to use than PLA straws because they need to be replaced frequently.

Compostable Straw

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.
