How to make paper straws
For the sustainable development of the ecological environment, many companies are moving in the direction of environmental protection, and paper straws have gradually become a part of daily life. Last year, many straw manufacturers have begun to provide environmentally friendly, biodegradable glue. I wonder if you are curious about how paper straws are made. If you are interested, please continue to read it.
The manufacturing of paper straws is similar to the winding process of other regulated items in some conveniences. There are many such things in our lives: transportation tubes, food packaging bags, etc. Paper straws are similar to these things, but the production scale is smaller. Generally, only food-grade paper is needed to make paper straws (the content of fluorescent agent in ordinary paper exceeds the standard, which is extremely harmful to the human body), ink, glue and other raw materials. In the production process, thin paper rolls pass through The soaking of glue turns into a sticky reel. Use a cylindrical hard object to wind them together to form a long paper tube, then cut these long paper tubes to the required size, and pack them into a beautiful appearance.

How to dispose of paper straws
Everyone knows that ordinary paper can be biodegradable, but it does not mean that paper straws can also be biodegradable. When the carbon material in the product decomposes to 60% within 180 days, it conforms to what we often say “biodegradable.” “Degradation”, but in our daily life, the storage time of paper may exceed 180 days, of course, this is still much faster than the disappearance of plastic.
In our daily lives, we usually cannot compost paper-like items or leave them in the natural world for biodegradation. If you think about it carefully, we rarely set up compost bins in shopping malls and restaurants that we often visit. The straw will be thrown into the ordinary trash can along with the rest of the garbage and eventually enter the landfill. However, when the paper straw is thrown into the trash can, it may never biodegrade, which means that the paper straw will only increase the trash on the earth. Nowadays, many paper straws are made of food-grade paper and environmentally friendly glue, so they are recyclable, but once they absorb the liquid, they may not be able to recycle it. For example, after you drink a smoothie, some smoothies remain If it is on the inner wall of the straw, it cannot be recycled.
So, what can we do to reduce our environmental impact? In fact, the easiest way is to reject all straws, but this measure is obviously not easy to implement. Replacing plastic straws with paper straws is like using McDonald’s food instead. KFC’s food is the same-both are not good for our health, just like plastic straws and paper straws will also affect our environment.
