The Idea of Replacing Paper Straws with Plastic Straws

The seemingly insignificant straw has long been an important product in our daily lives. In recent years, with the rapid development of the food packaging industry, more and more plastic straws that have been randomly discarded have begun to burden the environment while bringing convenience to people's lives. Paper straws gradually show an advantage due to their recyclability. Bars and restaurants are gradually full of paper-based yellow striped straws bulk, gold paper straws bulk, and party straws bulk printed with  funny patterns. 
In a recent interview, Peter Gilbert, director of the special paper market and customer service at Dunta, said that the company is no stranger to the paper pipette business and has previously supplied paper to the first manufacturer of paper straws. But in order to change the paper straw from a niche market to a commodity, the papermaking industry needs to upgrade deep processing technology and improve paper performance.
The Idea of Replacing Paper Straws with Plastic Straws

At present, the cost of paper straws is five times more expensive than plastic straws. Because of the slow processing equipment, 150-200 straws are produced per minute. Plastic extrusion equipment can produce more than 2,000 plastic straws per minute. At the same time, the demanding requirements of deep processing have made the special paper used as the raw material of the paper straws strong. In order to achieve the compressive strength of the paper straw, the straw is made of three to four layers of paper, and the manufacturing process is very strict. More importantly, the paper that makes the straw must be waterproof to ensure that people do not deform or fall apart when using it. At the same time, it must be ensured that the material is biodegradable in response to environmental concerns, but it will take some time to meet these requirements.
Although the challenges are heavy, it does not mean that paper straws will not be put into the market quickly. Gilbert said that many deep processing manufacturers are learning how to make paper straws. They have begun to purchase paper straw making equipment in response to market demand. Dunta Special Paper Co., Ltd. is also actively working with some deep processing paper mills to find a new and improved qualified paper grade as a raw material for paper straws.
If you buy paper straws, choose Shenyu, a professional paper straw manufacturer. Shenyu offers a variety of color, style paper straws. These paper straws are safe, degradable and non-polluting.
