Bye Bye Disposable Plastic Tableware!
The start of summer will be environmentally friendly. In 2019, the European Parliament voted to ban the sale of single-use plastic from July 2021. A sensible step in the fight against the plastic flood. Cutlery, plates and cups made of plastic and polystyrene that are only meant for one-time use will thus be a thing of the past. The future belongs to reusable, environmentally friendly alternatives. Exact data on the consumption of plastic straws are only based on estimates. In Germany alone, an average of about 40 billion plastic straws are said to be consumed each year. Plastic straws cause unnecessary waste that often ends up in oceans and rivers. Whole plastic pieces and small microplastic particles damage ecosystems in the long term. It's time for a rethink. With our company's environmentally friendly alternative, no one will have to give up drinking with a straw in the future. Our edible super straws are vegan and made of apple fibre in combination with durum wheat semolina. This gives the biodegradable straws stability. The environmentally friendly super straws can withstand up to 60 minutes in drinks. In cold and alcoholic drinks, the natural straws retain their firm consistency even twice as long. After just under 20 minutes, they reach the perfect consistency to be eaten.
Environmentally friendly drinking pleasure for crunching
Our drinking straws should not be missing at the next party or cosy round with friends or family. The apple fibres give our super straws a subtle, fresh and fruity taste. Nevertheless, they are almost tasteless. We attach great importance to environmentally friendly production. The raw materials come from the region. Short transport routes ensure an optimal ecological balance. The main ingredient of the super straws is apple pomace. We use raw materials that are already produced during apple juice production. Already in the production process, the natural straws have a better eco-balance than the conventional products made of plastic. In the initial phase, the founding team worked intensively on the optimal product composition. Environmental friendliness, durability and taste neutrality were important criteria. The joy of experimentation and the effort have paid off. Our edible drinking sticks have an optimal shelf life and do not react immediately with the drink. The drinking tubes are manufactured in Germany. The only exception are the 25 cm long straws, which are made in Italy. The light straws consist of durum wheat semolina, wheat gluten, apple fibres and a natural flavouring. The dark ones also contain vegetable charcoal as a colourant. Our products are therefore made entirely from renewable raw materials and contain no synthetic colouring or flavouring agents. Quality and customer satisfaction are particularly important to us. That is why we regularly have our internal company procedures and production processes audited and certified according to international standards. The audit with the IFS Food certificate (International Featured Standards) and HACCP certifies optimal product quality and compliance with legal requirements.
Sensible alternative for private individuals and gastronomy
The biological alternative to conventional straws convinces buyers. In total, the super straws have replaced more than 50 million plastic straws so far. Environmentally friendly products are in vogue. According to the Federal Environment Agency, green products have already become firmly established in everyday private households. No wonder, after all, they make you feel better in the end. In the catering industry, the sustainability issue is also gaining in importance. Conventional plastic straws are particularly easy to replace with environmentally friendly alternatives. This means that a considerable amount of plastic waste can be avoided each year. Restaurants and bars are thus positioning themselves in the sustainable segment. Environmental awareness is a valuable unique selling point in attracting and retaining customers. Already in 2011, more than half of the catering businesses worked with sustainable suppliers. This trend is likely to become even more important in the future. If you are looking for more environmentally friendly alternatives to plastic, take a look at the complete product range. With the sustainable Superspoons, you can enjoy your ice cream without creating any waste. In the hotel and catering industry, they make it easy to implement the ban on single-use plastic. The spoon remains stable for five to seven ice cream scoops. Smoothie bowls, yoghurts or the milk foam of coffee can be wonderfully spooned with it. Stir sticks for hot drinks, sushi sticks and tableware are useful additions to the range. Plates, bowls and cups made of natural materials not only help to reduce waste in restaurants and hotels. They are perfect for a picnic in the countryside or a cosy barbecue in the garden.
