Excerpt from The Town Dish:

With all this in mind, we were curious to try a new brand of compostable straw from Repurpose Compostables, a brand that makes single-use plates, utensils, cups, napkins and more from non-toxic, BPA-free and 100% plant-based materials. The materials are compostable within 90 days in an industrial composting facility. One of the biggest selling points for these straws are their durability and ability to bend and flex — all things that are sacrificed with paper straws.

We got a box of Repurpose’s straws and let our team try them out. Here’s some of their feedback:

“This seems like a very legit straw to me.” – Jay

“Little thinner than a normal straw — not sure if a thick milkshake would work with this, but for any other beverage they are great.” – Rich

“I wouldn’t think this was anything other than a plastic straw. It’s great.” – Jason

“My kids use straws all of the time. They would love these and never notice a difference.” – Joe

“I’d absolutely buy these plant-based straws now that I know they exist.” – Jenny

“My wife and I have switched to metal straws at home, which are great, but I prefer these! I like the feel of these, the flexibility and how lightweight they are.” – Steve

“Paper straws are great, but when they collapse quickly and block fluids it can be a hassle. Using metal straws eases my mind a bit, but it’s difficult to get the residue from smoothies or juice pulp out, and sometimes the metal straws can hurt if I’m sipping something quickly. These straws have no disadvantages, they are awesome!” – Mary

“It feels no different than a normal plastic straw. It bends nicely.” – Anna

 An affordable solution for keeping it clean and green at home, during parties or on the road — we’ll say cheers to that! For more info on Repurpose products, visit  its website .
