Celiac-Friendly Paper Drinking Straws

Imported straws may not use glues that are food-safe approved in North America. We guarantee our glues are gluten-free.

Why Choose Paper


Some people need straws - what's the best option and is there such a thing as a biodegradable straw?

Our Straws Are Good for Bees


We donate our "not quite the right length" straws produced when calibrating our machines to beekeepers who use them to make bee houses.

Check out our videos to see how our machines work. We think they're pretty interesting.

We're excited to be working with indigenous artists develop a line of straws that support their art, help share their stories, and, for restauranteurs,  can be a performative symbol of reconciliation.

This line now features works by Indigenous artists Francine Cunningham and Shirley Babcock (bios coming on a new soon).
