Aardvark® Straws Offers Customizable Paper Straws

FORT WAYNE, IND. (March 6, 2019) – Aardvark® Straws, the original U.S. producer of paper straws, offers customizable paper straws for your brand and can include company names and logos. No other paper straws on the market offer the wide variety of printing that Aardvark does, all while remaining earth and marine friendly.

Foodservice providers, restaurants, businesses, and more can advertise their brands on Aardvark Straws through their four-color process print capabilities, which makes for standout logos and designs. Aardvark paper straws are manufactured with a proprietary method that creates superior paper straws and are specifically made not to disintegrate, get soggy or fall apart.

In addition to its customization capabilities, Aardvark patented the one-of-a-kind, bendable Eco-Flex® paper straw, which can be positioned at an angle that a consumer needs or wants to sip it from. Like all Aardvark paper straws, the Eco-Flex is marine degradable, compostable, elemental chlorine free, and won’t break down in your drink.

Aardvark Straws can be found in thousands of restaurants around the world. For establishments looking for a sustainable alternative to plastic straws, Aardvark Paper Straws decompose in just 45-90 days. All materials that make up an Aardvark Straw—adhesive, inks and papers—are also “edible.”

In 2018, Hoffmaster, a leading U.S. manufacturer of premium disposable tableware for restaurants, hospitals, and the foodservice industry, acquired Aardvark Straws to add to its premium portfolio of environmentally responsible, disposable tabletop products.
