Aardvark paper straws were introduced in 2007 in response to a growing anti-plastic movement. Parent company Precision Products Group, Inc., created an environmentally friendly straw based off the original paper straw invented in 1888 by Marvin Stone. Today, Aardvark offers printed straws, cake pop sticks and bendable Eco-Flex® paper straws that are both earth and marine friendly, food safe, durable, customizable and made in the USA.
- MADE IN THE USA: 100% of all raw materials, process components and materials that go into the making of paper straws are made in the United States. The labor to make, package and ship the paper straws is comprised of a 100% United States workforce. Aardvark® Paper Drinking Straws are fully compliant with FTC and California standards for “Made in the USA.”
- Food Safe
- Each box contains 600 loose straws
- Biodegradable: Aardvark® uses natural cellulose paper as the primary material of the paper drinking straws. Paper, being a natural fiber, is universally considered to be inherently biodegradable. Aardvark straws being made of paper naturally degrade in oceans, rivers and lakes and are safe for marine life. All plastic straws, including biodegradable and compostable plastic straws, pose a serious threat to the marine environment as their fragments do not degrade and remain in the ocean, able to be ingested by marine organisms. Aardvark’s durable straws reduce plastic pollution by breaking down quickly in most environments.
