Eco straw – Regular Black 5000 Pk

We use an oxo-biodegradable additive at the manufacturing stage which turns ordinary plastic into a material with a different molecular structure. After a period of useful life, the ECO-STRAW will break down in the presence of oxygen. At the end of that process, it is no longer a plastic and has become a material which will disappear in the open environment, the same way as a leaf.

    We use an oxo-biodegradable additive at the manufacturing stage which turns ordinary plastic into a material with a different molecular structure.

    The product eventually becomes carbon dioxide, water and biomass without leaving fragments in the environment.

    What standards does it meet?

    ASTM D6954-04(2013) American standard for exposing and testing plastics that degrade in the enviroment by a combination of oxidisation and biodegradation. This covers:
    Tier 1 – Degradability
    Tier 2 – Biodegradation
    Tier 3 – Eco-toxicity
    Regulation (EC) No. 2023/2006 approvals for plastic coming into contact with food.
