What are UrthPact’s Home Compostable Straws made of?

The straws are manufactured using Danimer Scientific’s signature biopolymer, Nodax PHA®. The naturally-occurring material was verified as an effective biodegradable alternative to traditional petrochemical plastics in a 2018 study led by the University of Georgia (UGA) researchers and members of the UGA New Materials Institute. Nodax PHA® has also been certified home compostable by TUV’s OK compost HOME and passes marine degradation testing per ASTM D6691.

Will the straws fully break down in the ocean?

Yes. They will degrade completely to produce carbon dioxide, water, and biomass which can be consumed by microorganisms in the environment or used to enrich either the soil or marine ecosystem.

Are your straws better than paper?

Yes, they are! Unlike paper, our straws are certified home compostable (they pass testing for AS 5810 and are certified by TUV Austria’s OK compost HOME). No trees have been sacrificed in order to produce our straws. Our materials are all made in the USA and come from nature. UrthPact Home Compostable Straws don’t turn to mush, don’t feel strange in your mouth, nor add any bad taste to your beverage.

Where are your straws made?

All of our materials are produced right here in the USA, and all of our manufacturing happens state-side as well. Our straws are 100% American-Made.

Are UrthPact’s Straws certified home compostable?

Yes! Our straws pass testing for AS 5810 for home compostability and are certified home compostable with TUV’s OK compost HOME.

Do the straws have any strange smell or feel?

No, UrthPact Straws look, smell and feel just like a traditional plastic straw. They add no flavor, have no strange feel and stand up in drinks just like a traditional plastic straw.

Does UrthPact make any other compostable products?

Yes. Currently, UrthPact also manufactures single-use cutlery, coffee products (one-way valves for bags and single-use coffee pod components), and preforms and caps for water bottles. All of our other products (aside from straws) are certified industrial compostable per ASTM D6400 and OK compost INDUSTRIAL
