World Centric® compostable Kraft paper straws are made from FSC® Certified paper from sustainable sources. They are BPA, phthalate and PVC free. The straws also provide durability unavailable with traditional paper straws, which tend to disintegrate quickly in liquids. These eco-friendly straws conform with FDA, ISO, and ASTM standards for compostability, and will compost in 2–4 months in a commercial composting facility. The straws also fulfill the requirements of the California Straw Law.
