Sustainable and edible pasta straws

Sea ​​turtle with plastic straw

Did you know...

...that we use about 36.4 billion straws per year in Europe? (Plastic Soup Foundation). Really, over 36 billion straws, mostly made of plastic...

If you look at the total amount of plastic waste, this is not too bad in terms of volume. But those straws end up everywhere, are eaten by animals, or injure these animals. You may have seen the video where a biologist has to remove a straw from the nose of a sea turtle. Terrible to watch, as far as we're concerned. This is what can happen to straws if we just throw them behind us. We can't let that happen together, can we?

A very good alternative that we have found is a 100% plastic-free, sustainable and edible straw. Straws made of pasta! This way you can enjoy a nice drink with a straw, but you do not produce any plastic waste. You can read more about it on this page.

Ingredients - corn flour

Why pasta?

For a sustainable alternative to plastic straws, we looked for a product that is made with natural and sustainable ingredients. Pasta is then a nice base, it is nothing more than flour and water, it couldn't be more sustainable.

The used pasta is made from corn flour. The advantage of this is that no wheat is used that is needed for the food industry.

Paper straws

Pasta beats paper!

Paper straws have been around for quite some time as an alternative to plastic. A tricky habit of paper, at least for straws, is that paper absorbs moisture, then softens and ultimately falls apart.

The industry solved this issue by adding a coating of chemicals to prevent them falling apart. However, this coating is not sustainable and therefore they must be disposed of with the residual waste.

Our pasta straws do not need this chemical process; the straws do not fall apart in cold drinks for about one hour. All this without chemical additives. This makes pasta a better and more sustainable alternative than paper!

Straws of stainless steel

Pasta straws vs. 

reusable straws

In addition to disposable straws, there are also reusable straws, for example made of stainless steel, glass or bamboo.

However, these straws have one major drawback. Reusability means you have to clean them, preferably with the supplied brushes. Proper cleaning is important for hygiene reasons, for example, think of lipstick that can remain on the straws or someone with a cold sore spreading the infection. The time required for proper cleaning, together with the high costs of purchasing the reusable straws and personnel, make this variant less suitable for the hospitality industry.

Exactly what I was looking for. Do not impart any taste to the drink and do not soften. I wanted to be able to keep drinking out of straws, but wanted something different than plastic. And when I finish my drink, I can eat the straw too.
