We are proud to carry Aardvark Straws and their paper products as one of our sustainable brands and cafe wholesale products. Aardvark paper straws were re-introduced in 2007, in response to a growing anti-plastic movement. Restaurants, hospitals, and other services industries, the main buyers of plastic straws in the US, were forced to look for more sustainable, eco-friendly options.
As a leading US manufacturer of small-size cylindrical tubing solutions, Precision Products Group Inc. was asked to create a straw that was more environmentally friendly. The answer was in their archives: Marvin Stone’s original 1888 patent for the first paper straw. Putting a modern spin on Stone’s original concept, Aardvark® was able to create a straw, using natural papers, that was more sustainable and more durable than any other paper straw on the market.
