We want to make it as easy as possible to make the switch from plastic to paper straws. We have a straw shop where you can order directly from us with a 2-3 week lead time, or if you are interested in purchasing in volume or would like a custom straw, please contact for more information on sizes and designs. If you would rather order through your distributor, we would be happy to work with them. Contact us with your distributor's contact information and the products that you are interested in.

If you’re a restaurant owner, please consider offering paper straws “upon request.”

  • We suggest restaurant owners and employees only offer a paper straw if a customer specifically requests one.
  • Pepara® found that companies that offer straws on demand reduce straw consumption by 40%, diminishing the increased cost of switching to paper straws and allowing restaurants to save money while saving the planet.
  • Pepara® straws can also be customized and personalized with any restaurant or company name, logo or tagline, increasing brand awareness and combating pollution from plastic straws at the same time.
  • This allows businesses to reap the marketing rewards of going green without a hit to the bottom line.

Have you considered switching to compostable plastic straws? Here is why environmentalist advises not to. A compostable plastic straw act just like a regular plastic straw in marine environments. 5 Gyres also did a study on compostable plastics, that you can read about here.

If you are a restaurant who has gotten rid of plastic straws in your establishment, we want to add you to the map! Please email your business' information to for us to update the map for you! 

We want to make sure every person know's where the closest eco-friendly restaurant is.
