Aardvark® Paper Drinking Straws are fully compliant with FTC and California standards for “Made in the USA.”
The Paper Straws are made for only chilled drinks, hot beverages decrease their longevity. With normal use, the paper straws will last for 2-3 hours.
“The company uses only FDA approved food-grade ink and Aardvark® Biodegradable Straws are eco-friendly and they are the perfect earth-friendly alternative to plastic straws, which can severely pollute and damage the environment”.
Note: According to the American Council on Science and Health, there is a “study that was published in October 2017 in the journal Environmental Science & Technology, it estimated that 88 to 95% of plastic pollution in the oceans came from just 10 rivers in our world. Eight of them were in Asia, and the other two were in Africa”.
