Swap to paper drinking straws today! This trial pack contains a range of different Utopia Paper straws for you to test and sample before making your swap.

Innovation has always been at the core of Utopia’s offering, and as we have seen and been part of the wave of the movement towards eco-friendly alternatives to single use items we saw a fit for what we can offer. Straws and stirrers when in plastic were seen as a bland commodity, adding little value to the serve and even less to the environment, but with other materials there is the opportunity to differentiate and add value to the serve through the patterns, colour and variations that can be achieved.

Our range is focused on bringing the best product into the market, meeting all the environmental needs whilst giving our customers a way to create innovative serves through our extensive range of straws, skewers and stirrers.

By the year 2050, unless WE act now there will be more plastic than fish in the sea. Single-use plastics are a frivolous reason to add to the global pollution problem, we need to focus on improving the way we consume and serve to make it as environmentally friendly as possible. The following facts are just some we need to look at as a reason to move to environmentally friendly options:

• There are believed to be 46,000 pieces of plastic in every square mile of ocean.
• Microparticles of plastics are being absorbed by fish that are then eaten by humans.
• The amount of plastic waste generated globally is estimated to be nearly 6.3 billion tonnes.
• Plastic can take up to 500 years to decompose.

For our paper and wood products, it is key that they are compostable, biodegradable and food safe, without this they are not fulfilling the need to be environmentally friendly and improve the position from single-use plastics. We rigorously test our products to make sure they adhere to these requirements. For paper to be environmentally friendly it needs to adhere to the Forest Stewardship Council certification, which gives customers the option to choose forest products like paper and wood that have been sourced in an environmentally-friendly, socially responsible and economically viable manner. FSC was founded in 1993 in response to concerns about deforestation. All our wooden stirrers and paper straws have been FSC sourced. After months of consultations our range of paper straws have now received EN13432:2000 accreditation. This certification specifically focuses on compostability, making sure Utopia’s non-metallic paper straws adhere to strict standards concerning biodegrading so they only have a positive impact on the environment. In other words they actually give something back to the earth when their useful life is over.

We believe in testing all our products to our own as well as industry standards. This is to make sure our products are best in the market for how and why they are used.

Paper straws are tested against:
• Liquid absorption of different acidities and sugars
• Strength and diameter testing
• Durability with contact to varying liquids
• Ink leakage into liquid after set periods of time

We strive to make sure that our straws that enter the market match the level of quality we expect from all Utopia products.
