UrthPact Launches Home Compostable Boba Straws and New Color Options at the National Restaurant Association Show

May 20, 2023

Leominster, MA. (May 20, 2023): UrthPact – the global leader in certified compostable foodservice ware manufacturing—announces the addition of Boba straws to its line of home and industrial compostable and marine-degradable products. UrthPact is also expanding its customizable color options for its sustainable straws and you can see them at booth #9620. 

UrthPact’s new Boba Straw is designed for your customer’s satisfaction and your sustainability business goals. Made from natural, certified compostable materials, the straw is home compostable and biodegradable. They break down into organic matter within months, returning nutrients to the soil and avoiding pollution in our oceans and landfills.

In addition, we offer customers the ability to customize straws to reflect their brand, a promotional color of their choice, and printed messages on the wrap. New colors include orange, cornflower blue, and shades of green and black, which were introduced last year.

UrthPact’s new Boba Straw offers a delightful drinking experience for your customers. The smooth texture and unique design make it perfect for enjoying boba teas, smoothies, milkshakes, and other cold beverages. The straw is also durable and will not break down or become soggy, ensuring your customers can enjoy their drinks to the last sip.

“Our straws not only help mitigate the single-use global plastic problem, unlike paper straws, consumers constantly tell us they function like legacy straws. This ensures they have the same experience they’ve come to expect,” said UrthPact CEO Paul Boudreau. “This straw is just an example of our ability to develop a custom solution to meet any specific requirement,” added Boudreau. 

UrthPact straws are available through multiple regional and national distributors. They are used by restaurants, juice bars, hotels, convenience stores, and other businesses offering sustainable straws. 

By choosing an UrthPact Straw, your business takes an important step towards a more sustainable future. And your customers will feel good knowing they are reducing their environmental impact. 

Manufactured in Leominster, MA, and Lincoln, CA, UrthPact straws reduce the pollution caused by plastic waste, including the pollution generated by shipping plastic straws from China, CO2 pollution, and damage to our forests during the production of paper straws.
