Change the way you think about sustainable straws.
PlantSwitch straws are made with the discarded agave fibers from tequila production, giving agroindustrial waste a second life. Unlike paper, our straws will never get soggy or disintegrate in your drink. Our products degrade over 90% in the first 100 days in simulated landfill conditions.
Make the Switch
Products used for seconds shouldn’t last for centuries
Unlike other “eco products”, our straws stay fresh in your drink when you need them, and biodegrade when you don’t. The compact nature of landfills see little to no oxygen, making it nearly impossible for products like paper to breakdown. All PlantSwitch products are uniquely tailored to degrade without oxygen, making them an ideal match for any environment.
