Saving the world, one straw at a time

Imagine an ocean with more plastic than fish and birds too weighed down by plastic to fly. These environmental threats are already happening as plastic waste chokes our seas, damaging wildlife and plants along the way.

8.5 billion plastic drinking straws are thrown away annually in the UK. Unsuitable for recycling, and taking up to 200 years to biodegrade, many find their way onto beaches – they are a top 10 item found in beach clean ups - and into the ocean. One million seabirds and 100,000 mammals and sea turtles are killed by plastic marine litter around the world every year.

Paper Straw Group is passionate about playing a role in the fight against plastic pollution by providing an earth-friendly alternative to plastic drinking straws. Made in Britain from sustainable FSC certified paper, all our eco straws, customised and branded paper drinking straws and wraps are 100% biodegradable, decomposing in under 60 days. Sizes range from cocktail straws to long, extra long and extra thick.

Some may claim their paper straws are recyclable but Paper Straw Group is the only British manufacturer to guarantee its paper straws are 100% microplastics-free. You’ll find no microplastics in our glue, and no wax coating which means our straws are recyclable and minimize the environmental impact. All our ink is also food grade, making it completely safe for family, friends, guests and children to use.
