Why not plastic straws

A single plastic straw can take up to 200 years to decompose. An estimated half a billion plastic straws are discarded every day and far too many end up in our oceans.  Plastic straws are not biodegradable – instead, they slowly fragment into smaller and smaller plastics (a.k.a. microplastics), which fish and marine animals mistake for food, ingesting the plastic. It’s estimated that up to 71 percent of seabirds and 30 percent of turtles end up ingesting plastic to their stomachs.  For more information go to https://www.strawlessocean.org/.

Why Paper Straws – Here are the benefits of paper straws
  • Paper straws are biodegradable
  • Paper straws take less amount of time to decompose
  • Switching to paper straws will reduce the use of plastic straws
  • Paper straws are (relatively) affordable
  • Paper straws are safer for wildlife

HAR adhesive Technologies is committed to our future and focusing on paper straws is one small thing we can do.  We believe our commitment to the paper straw industry is more than just a good business decision, it is a statement that we value our ecosystem.  We only have one world and we must do whatever we can to be good stewards of the world that we have been given.

Ask us how we can support your move into the paper straw industry or how we can help your current paper straw operation improve your quality, lower your scrap, increase your productivity and lessen your clean up time.
