The Compostable Straw
The Back to Earth™ straw is 100% eco-friendly and compostable, made from BPI-certified materials. Back to Earth™ performs just like plastic but with earth-friendly advantages.
How it Works
Back to Earth™ decomposes wherever it is discarded, whether in the compost bin or the garbage. It actually leaves no trace.
Microorganisms in nature treat BTE materials as food, and break them down naturally into carbon dioxide and water. BTE materials – Cellulose (wood) and Acetate (from acetic acid, vinegar) – do not remain as microplastics in the environment due to their inherent biodegradability.
A Straw That Returns To Nature
High Performance & Sustainable
While the Back to Earth™ straw looks, feels, and acts just like a plastic straw, it’s created with biopolymers made with ingredients that are biodegradable in compost, soil, water, and marine environments, that will be naturally consumed by microorganisms, rather than remaining as microplastics in the environment.
