PacknWood Food Service Supplier Now Carries Eco-Friendly Kraft Reed Straws

PacknWood is excited to add Kraft reed straws to its catalog of eco-friendly restaurant and hospitality supply solutions. 

The new straws are made from reed, a natural plant that is part of the grass family. It is found naturally on the water or in marshes. As a straw, it is durable. It can withstand hot temperatures and will not become completely soaked in water. It is 100% biodegradable and will not release any natural fibers into beverages, as other natural straws might.

The reed straws are available in four different sizes: 5.5 inches, 7.9 inches, 8.7 inches, and 9.9 inches. All of the straws have a 0.2-inch diameter, except for the 8.7-inch straw, which has a larger 0.4-inch diameter. The larger diameter straw can be used for boba drinks or smoothies. Plus, you can customize these straws to have your restaurant branding, creating another brand impression in customers’ minds. 

The new products are: 

  • 210RDSTRW145 – 5.5” x 0.2”
  • 210RDSTRW205 – 7.9” x 0.2”
  • 210RDSTRW2210 – 8.7” x 0.4”
  • 210RDSTRW255 – 9.9” x 0.2”

According to Adam Merran, Chief Executive Officer at PacknWood USA, “Reed straws are a natural and sustainable alternative that offer a unique look with a high-class experience. Many eco-friendly disposable straws are single use. However, with these, you can have customers take home the straws to reuse them. It’s almost like a little gift for your eco-conscious customers to enjoy.
