Types of Recyclable Paper Straws

by Sunny Ou Eco-Friendly Packaging for Food and Drinks

According to report, all plastic packaging in the EU should be reusable or recyclable by 2030. Environmentally friendly packaging with barrier coatings makes this goal achievable. The rising strain on the environment caused by plastic packaging is a major challenge at present. Therefore, the circular economy, which the European Union launched with an action plan back in 2015, is an important step.

Plastics are remarkable materials with a wide variety of properties and are durable, inert, and moldable. The problem arose when plastic became a single-use, disposable material on a daily basis. The world produces more than 400 million tons of plastics every year, and 36% is destined for single-use materials, such as packaging, which in turn generates 300 million tons of waste (UNEP 2018). Of that amount, only 9% is recycled, 12% is incinerated, and the remaining 79% accumulates in landfills and dumps or is littered in the environment, with half of this amount coming from packaging waste (Geyer et al. 2017).

For packaging industry, it is a challenge! So, what kind of substitutes should we find to replace disposable plastic straws? Recyclable paper straw is the best alternative!

Water-based coating/aqueous coating paper straw is recyclable paper straw. Using high-performance barrier coatings is possible to create innovative packaging materials that are superior to plastics in many ways. The heat-sealing coating is with excellent moisture and vapor barrier properties. Good product resistance characteristics for a wide range of demanding foil and paper packaging applications. FDA compliant for direct food contact.

Our recyclable paper straw is totally different from traditional paper straw. Traditional paper straw adopts paper/wet-strength paper with glue. Ours uses 1 piece of water barrier coated paper (100% recyclable and environmentally friendly), adopting ultrasonic heat-sealing technology without glue. Many people think that traditional paper drinking straws are recyclable because they are made from paper, but this actually a big misconception. Traditional paper drinking straws roll up three to five layers of wet paper and glue them together. And because paper drinking straws use glue and wet paper, paper drinking straws cannot be recycled by most pulp mills.
