Plant Fiber Straws
Taking the plastic out of your daily life, one piece at a time
At Natura Est we aim to provide a renewable product that will minimize carbon footprint and plastic pollution while creating a sustainable product for everyday use.
There is an estimated 500 million straws used everyday in the United States. One study published earlier this year estimated as many as 8.3 billion plastic straws pollute the world's beaches. We want to take a step forward and partner with businesses to lessen the amount of plastic pollution.
Our products are 100% plastic free. They are created with sugar cane fiber and minimal processing. For more information or purchasing please contact us, we look forward to hearing from you!

Is your product compostable or biodegradable?
Yes! Since the straws are made from natural plant fibers the decomposition in optimal conditions is estimated to be 90% broken down in 180 days.
Will the straws lose quality if kept in a beverage for extended periods?
No! We have kept straws submerged in cold beverages for periods of 1+ hour without any loss of quality.
Does your product have a taste due the natural fiber material?
There is no noticable taste, but customers have a described a light sweet aroma. We have tested the straws with a variety of beverages including water, iced coffee (black as well as with cream/sugar), iced tea (milk/fruit/plain), juices (apple/orange/grape/lemonade) and various sodas; there was no difference in flavor between no straw usage, plastic straw usage and sugar cane straw usage in comparison.
Why not use paper straws?
Paper is a great alternative, but the sugar cane straws will hold up and quality does not degrade if left in beverages and can be used more than one time throughout the day.
