World Centric introduces FSC-certified kraft paper straws
World Centric
Jan. 15, 2019 - World Centric today announced the availability of new 100 per cent compostable, marine-degradable Kraft Paper Straws designed to reduce the impact of plastic straws on the planet. The new straws are made from sustainable materials, are non-toxic, and will help reduce the buildup of unrecyclable plastic in the environment and our oceans. 

World Centric's new Kraft Paper Straws are manufactured utilizing FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) certified kraft paper that meets strict standards for environmental and social responsibility and helps ensure long-term protection of forests. The straws also provide durability unavailable with traditional paper straws, which tend to quickly lose their shape and functionality in liquids; contain no phthalates, BPA, or chlorine bleach; and are compostable. In addition, they fulfill the requirements of the new California Straw Law that took effect Jan. 1, 2019.

"U.S. consumers use up to 500 million straws a day. Given growing concerns about the environmental impact of plastic straws, we've been looking for the best solution we could provide to reduce the amount of plastic in the ocean and the overall eco-footprint of straws," said Mark Stephany, SVP of Sales at World Centric. "Our Kraft Paper Straws offer what we feel is the best alternative for solving the problem."

World Centric 8" Kraft Paper Straws are now sold in 50-count packages in all Publix stores. They are also available for purchase to the trade in 8" wrapped as well as 8" and 10" unwrapped versions. More information is available at www.worldcentric.com/paperstraws

The new straws join a portfolio of more than 250 fully compostable World Centric tableware products designed to provide sustainable alternatives to plastic and Styrofoam disposables.
