Repurpose Single-Use Compostable Straws
Repurpose has introduced what it calls the first flexible, single-use compostable straws. The bendy straws are said to be strong and durable so they don’t crack mid-sip, and also BPA-free, chlorine-free and nontoxic. The straws are certified compostable, meaning they break down in an industrial composter in just 90 days, as do Repurpose’s single-use cups, plates, bowls and utensils. Fewer fossil resources are required to produce Repurpose’s straws than conventional straws, further lowering their overall carbon footprint. SRP is $2.79 per 50-pack, which are made from 85 percent recycled materials.
