With single-use plastic straws a topic of environmental debate, people are searching for a good alternative. If paper and metal straws aren’t for you, Pasta Life wants to introduce you to their creative pasta straws!
While paper straws are more sustainable than plastic, Pasta Life is saying what we’re all thinking: they just don’t work. Paper straws are also single-use and fall apart quickly in your drink, making them less environmentally friendly than desired.
Enter the pasta straw, which is precisely what you think. Always al dente and never soggy, pasta straws can last as much as 3 times longer than their paper counterparts.
Because they’re simply hard pasta, Pasta Life’s straws are also 100% biodegradable. Fully broken down in your back yard in less than 90 days, they make for guilt-free sipping.
“Pasta brings people together,” says co-founder Anthony Barresi. “Our vision is to bring that mindset to the table, and use pasta straws as a way to partner with like-minded people to help tackle our planet’s most pressing environmental issues.”
Pasta Life straws are made using only natural ingredients and are vegan and gluten-free. Even their 7 fun colors come from turmeric, beetroot, carrots, and more, making them totally kid-friendly and environmentally safe!
