A Paper Straw for Every Occasion

The Paper Straw Group is part of Optichrome Ltd, a third-generation printer focused on doing the right thing. Founded by Ken Stephens in the 60s – the same decade that saw plastic drinking straws widely adopted – Optichrome has evolved into a full-service communications business and leader in sustainable print. One of few printers to be EMAS registered, an environmental accreditation achieved in record time, we believe ‘if there’s a better way to do something, do it!’ It’s an attitude that sees us continually innovate and achieve industry firsts. As such, we only work with progressive suppliers that share our social and environmental values. All Optichrome paper and Paper Straw Group’s British made paper drinking straws come from the finest, climate-friendly sources, and our vegetable-based biodegradable inks and glue meet FDA standards.

In our first 18 months of trading we have been extremely busy, we are continually bringing to market new colours and designs and responding quickly to our customers’ requests. We now have an impressive catalogue of products all available to order for quick delivery.

A large range of our paper straws are also available to order individually wrapped, these have been particularly popular with juice bars, cafes and restaurants, opening up post lockdown. For further details of our individually wrapped paper straws, please visit the “Product” section on our website.
