Offering the best drinking straws is one small part of creating the best user experience for your customer or guest, and a great way to show your business cares about the environment.
When profit is your priority, sustainability can take a backseat. With phade® straws, it doesn’t have to. phade® straws and stirrers are functional, sustainable, accessible, and affordable. They perform the way your customers expect and because they are marine biodegradable, home and industrial compostable, phade® enables your customer to feel great because they are doing something good for the planet. They will appreciate your business even more because of the impact you help them make. We’d say that’s a pretty powerful straw!
PHA (polyhydroxyalkanoate) is the biopolymer here to change the planet. It’s a substrate derived from the fermentation of canola oil, making PHA an all-natural alternative we can use to create products that look, feel and function like traditional plastic (with advanced environmental benefits).
Because of PHA’s organic make-up, it acts as a food and energy source to bacteria found in nearly all natural environments. This means phade® products can return to nature after use and proper disposal, and go away in just a matter of months.
