WEB EXCLUSIVE: A proprietary PLA-based bioplastic from Cereplast, Inc., El Segundo, Calif., is being used in new compostable drinking straws sold under the Cello-Green Bio Straws brand by Cell-O-Core Co., Wadsworth, Ohio. Cereplast Compostable 7003 PLA is BPI (Biodegradable Products Institute) certified for industrial compostability of films and other extruded applications with a maximum thickness of 60 mils (1.50 mm). The material boasts an excellent balance of translucency, strength, toughness, and processability. It can be processed on existing profile extrusion and cast film lines.

Bio Straws are disposable with food waste and will fully biodegrade in a municipal composting facility in 180 days or less, Cereplast claims. Bio Straws are designed for use only in cold beverages; they are not recommended for use in hot beverages over 120 F. Because they can be disposed of and composted with food waste, they are a convenient fit for fast-food chains and other restaurants.
