Reduce. Reuse. Recycle. Replace.

Billions of disposable straws are consumed every week, and unfortunately, many of them end up in the wrong place. We say, skip the straw, but if you use one, choose a truly sustainable alternative.

A straw designed like nature

Sulapac straws don’t get soggy and can be used for up to 24 hours. What’s more, like the best parties, they won’t last forever. Sulapac straws biodegrade without leaving permanent microplastics behind. Cheers to the future!

Business or pleasure?

Either way, we got you covered. You can order ready-made straws for your business or personal use; or mass produce our drop-in solution material with the existing plastic machinery. Please choose how to proceed.
