Paper or plastic? It’s been a debate for years about a variety of goods, including grocery bags, food packaging materials, lollipop sticks, personal care items, and other single-use products. The latest item to make headlines is the dutiful but mundane straw. Plastic drinking straws are ubiquitous, but they are quickly taking a backseat to paper drinking straws.
It’s safe to say that the global campaign against the use of plastic straws reached fever pitch this year, with many companies including Starbucks, Bon Appetit, Hilton, Hyatt, Marriott, American Airlines and consumers choosing to ditch plastic straws in favor of paper ones.

The main argument for using paper straws instead of plastic ones is that paper is biodegradable. This means that it can naturally be broken down and won’t end up floating in our oceans or being swallowed by sea turtles. But did you also know that paper straws Milhench Supply company offers are also:
- BPA free
- 100% FDA & EU food-grade approved
- ISO 9001:2008 Certified
