The Problem With Paper Straws
Paper straws leave a bad taste in your mouth.

The good taste of your beverage is destroyed by the paper taste of the straw.



The straw becomes soggy within a very short period of time.

The paper straws uses glue to bind the paper together as well as coatings and dyes which have unknown health impacts.




Some Hard Truths About PLA (Bioplastics)
PLA will survive over a year  in seawater and freshwater  without breaking down.  (cbc.ca)

Certified biodegradable plastics will  not sufficiently biodegrade in existing  commercial composting or digestion  facilities, let alone in the natural  environment of land or oceans.  (National zero waste council)

PLA requires a very specific  environment for composting in an  industrial compost facility. It needs  to be heated to 140 degrees  Fahrenheight and fed a steady diet  of digestive microbes.  (scientificamerican.com)

If you put PLA into a landfill  that has little light and  oxygen, it can take over 100  years to decompose.  (Oceansasia)

PLA is not accepted by most  municipal, and some commercial  composting programs in Canada.  Meaning the waste is often sent to  landfill where they can take more  than a century to breakdown.  (cbc.ca)

Don’t put compostable plastics in  the greenbin”. Very few facilities  meet the temperature and  bacterial requirements needed to  break down the PLA. (cbc.ca)
