Sulapac introduces a bendable version of its signature straw – Riitan Herkku as the first customer

Sulapac launches a bio-based and compostable U-shaped straw which is designed to reduce plastic pollution. The sustainable straw has been developed together with Stora Enso and is first offered to consumers by food manufacturer and importer Riitan Herkku.

The novel U-shaped straw made of Sulapac Flow material is based on Sulapac’s patent pending material innovation. The main components are wood from industrial side streams and biodegradable biopolymers. The usability of the straw is excellent compared to paper straws.

The first company adopting the U-shaped Sulapac straws is the Finnish food manufacturer and importer Riitan Herkku, whose children’s organic juices will have the straw attached to them.

The straw complies with existing waste systems: it is recommended to recycle it via industrial composting. It doesn’t leave permanent microplastics behind. The straw is designed to biodegrade also in open environments, however, it should never be thrown into nature.
