The implementation of the strongest plastic restriction order has caused businesses to remove traditional disposable plastic straws and replace them with paper straws or "biodegradable straws". But paper straws are more difficult to use due to material reasons.
First of all, it is very difficult to pierce the plastic film of the lid of the milk tea cup with a paper straw, and it will break if it is soaked in the drink for a long time. Many customers will repeatedly take the straws, which does cause some waste.
However, many chain brands of milk tea merchants have replaced them with a "biodegradable straw", which is made of PLA+PBS and uses renewable plant resources. For example, corn starch is made from the main raw material, which is environmentally friendly and healthy. Moreover, its appearance looks similar to a paper straw, and it feels slightly rough, but its performance is the same as that of a plastic straw. And it is even harder than a plastic straw. The customer's experience is the same as that of a plastic straw.
The production cost of biodegradable straws is 3-5 times that of plastic straws, and the cost is not too high, but the raw materials of biodegradable straws are mainly derived from corn starch, the material commonly used in eco friendly disposable tableware, and the shelf life is 1 year. At present, biodegradable straws and paper straws are the mainstream alternatives to environmentally friendly straws in large quantities.
