Americans are Turning Away from Plastic

Americans want a new relationship with plastic. Now’s the time for your business to act.

Consumer attitudes to the environment are changing. Two thirds of Americans believe that a reduction in single-use plastic use would help the environment. Nearly three quarters say that they are making efforts to reduce disposable plastics

With local initiatives limiting single-use plastics from Seattle to Maine, US consumers are demanding a sustainable alternative to plastic straws. At Tembo Paper, we can help you to provide one.

What You Can Expect from Our Wholesale Paper Straws

We supply brands across the US with paper straws that are high quality, compostable, and sustainably sourced. Our manufacturing methods allow us to achieve the user experience that you would expect from plastic too. That means no sogginess, bad taste, or bits in your drink – all while enabling an environmental impact that’s a fraction of that of plastic.

  • Responsibly sourced paper, so that sustainability sits at the heart of our products.
  • 3-ply straws with 4% adhesive – to ensure a durable product while minimising its ecological footprint.
  • No sogginess, deformation, or loose ends before 3 hours in liquid – because that’s what you expect from a drinking straw.
  • Available in all common sizes and shapes – 3-10mm diameter and 116-260mm length, and telescopic, straight, and U-shaped, to meet your business needs.
  • Technology developed by Tembo Paper. We build the machines that produce the straws, including the world’s first paper straw making machine to produce 3mm-diameter straws.
