What is the best drinking straw? Paper BOSS STRAW is the answer. This isn’t the response anyone would have had 10 years ago. Perhaps, in the past, you have used a straw to drink and wondered “Gee it’s horrible but you’re not harming the ecosystem.” The problem is that the market is filled with cheap straws made of paper.
Cheap straws are spongy and sloppy, and taste a lot like pulp paper. The people who invented BOSS straws are passionate about paper and also drink their drinks with straws. Motivated by their love for and knowledge of paper they set out to protect the reputation of paper, develop an excellent straw, and contribute to the earth.
Making straws out of paper requires more than just rolling paper into tubes. Paper is porous and it has a variety of characteristics of fibers, binding and other elements to take into consideration. The BOSS straw makers were convinced they would be able to overcome these issues and make a top-quality drinking straw.
These were their terms and conditions to conduct research or develop:
- Food-grade, clean manufacturing
- Durability to last for 24 hours after drinking soda
- Refrains from spills with carbonated beverages
- No taste in tea, water or any other beverage
- Biodegradable, eco-friendly, and completely recyclable
CLEAN, FOOD GRADE MANUFACTURING
BOSS straws are produced in the USA at the Enviro Sip Straw plant in Illinois and is overseen by the BOSS in a safe and clean environment. Paper is porous, therefore they required a fully automated production line , from the coating and forming process up to wrapping and cutting. The BOSS included a few specific steps which would be the key to success. Of course the coatings, bindings, as well as substances had to be of a food grade and sustainable.
STRENGTH TO LAST 24 HOURS IN SODA
Being able to survive in soda was vital. Each soda is a source of carbonic acid that is created through the mixture of carbon dioxide, water and pressure. However, it’s not the only thing. Fruity sodas could include citric acid, and a lot of sodas have the acid phosphoric for a more sharp flavor and also as preservative. These acids can wreck destruction on paper. The BOSS straw had to endure for 24 hours.
RESISTS SPILLING OVER WITH CARBONATED DRINKS
Carbonated drinks can also can climb up straws made of paper. The upward bubbles, when combined with the viscosity and porous nature of paper makes carbonated drinks rise up paper straws that are cheap. Straws made of plastic can easily withstand this issue because they’re too slippery. The BOSS straw was needed to stop this mess from occurring.
TASTE-FREE IN WATER, TEA, OR ANY DRINK
There’s nothing more awful than sipping a fine iced tea and tasting the papers. A bug that is alive and dead in the drink could be more harmful. However, you didn’t want drink that was infused with paper. You bought a pomegranate-infused black tea that was five dollars. And you wanted it not smell like an old ruled college notebook. The BOSS straw was required to taste stale in a sophisticated way.
ECO-FRIENDLY, BIODEGRADABLE, AND 100% RECYCLABLE
Paper has been getting an unpopular reputation for quite a while. But, you won’t discover a massive floating paper island at the bottom of the ocean. Paper isn’t accumulating in the river’s delta or getting caught in a animal’s throat. Paper is gone and when BOSS straws disappear they don’t leave anything left behind. The pulp for paper is produced sustainably. All binding materials and bindings are food-grade that is safe for consumption, soil and waterways.
THE BEST STRAW
The straw it produced wasn’t the most efficient straw made of paper it was also the top straw. The straw was dubbed the BOSS straw because it’s the boss. It has all the advantages of straws made of plastic while being environmentally friendly and cost-effective to manufacture.
