Now being marketed as an eco-friendly alternative:
Unlike paper straws, which get soggy quickly and can detract from the overall experience of your drink, this pasta straw will hold its strength and shape in cold drinks, as well as will not affect the taste of your drinks. Made with only 100% durum wheat semolina and pure water, its all-natural composition is suitable for vegans and does not require special composting equipment to dispose of. The pasta's thick walls will last for an hour in your cold beverages and its 1/4" diameter promotes easy sipping no matter the drink's consistency. For added benefit, their 9 1/2" length makes them long enough for your hi ball, collins, or milkshake glasses, but can be cut to any length to accommodate your rocks glasses. Get ahead of the trend and supply your restaurant, bar, or cafe with this eco-friendly straw and show your customers you're committed to protecting and preserving the environment.Photo via the Europe subreddit.
