PLA Degradable Straws PK Saper Straws

In modern times, straws are very important products no matter which country they are in. But while straws bring convenience to people\’s lives, more and more plastic straws and similar products that are discarded at will begin to burden the environment. Under the pressure of heavy environmental protection and limited plastics, conventional straws are facing challenges and are eliminated. It is urgent to replace environmentally friendly straws, and environmentally friendly PLA biodegradable straws and paper straws have also emerged. Today, I will take you to learn about the two giants of environmentally friendly straws: PLA biodegradable straws and paper straws.

First of all, let\’s understand the origin of these two environmentally friendly straws:

PLA degradable straws, PLA (polylactic acid) is a new type of biodegradable material, made of renewable plant resources corn and other proposed starch raw materials. Starch raw materials are saccharified to obtain glucose, which is then fermented by glucose and certain strains to produce high-purity lactic acid, and then polylactic acid with a certain molecular weight is synthesized through chemical synthesis, and then processed into a shape, which has good biodegradability.

Paper straws are made of food-grade paper, which can be degraded in the soil after a few months of use.

These two kinds of straws can be completely degraded by microorganisms in nature after use, and eventually produce carbon dioxide and water. Directly enter the soil organic matter or be absorbed by plants, will not be discharged into the air, will not cause the greenhouse effect, and will not pollute the environment. Truly do it comes from nature and belongs to nature!

Secondly, let’s talk about the characteristics of these two environmentally friendly straws, and let’s talk about the similarities first:

  1. The material is natural, non-toxic, highly breathable, and will not release any hazardous substances to the human body;
  • After use, it can be completely decomposed by microorganisms after being composted and buried, and it will not cause any impact on the environment;
  • It can replace traditional plastic straws that use petroleum as raw material, and use the same method, which is more environmentally friendly and healthier.
  • Because environmentally friendly straws are more expensive and slightly more expensive than plastic straws, they may also become an obstacle to the development of the environmentally friendly straws market.

Then, let’s take a look at the differences between these two environmentally friendly straws:

PLA degradable straws have a temperature resistance of -10°C to 80°C, which is closer to traditional plastic straws, and has the same physical properties as traditional plastic straws, and has higher stability. But its color is simpler than that of paper straws;

The temperature tolerance of paper straws is between -10°C and 40°C, and it is easy to dissolve when it exceeds 40°C, which will affect the taste of food. But it can be customized in different colors, and can be used as decorations, which is more beautiful.


In summary, PLA biodegradable straws and paper straws are the hottest environmentally friendly straws at the moment, but each has its own characteristics. Customers can choose different environmentally friendly straws according to their needs. Finally, the editor reminds that it is everyone\’s responsibility to care for the environment.
