This Indiana Company is Helping the Planet One Paper Straw at a Time
Paper is the New Plastic
Nowhere is the demand for sustainable alternatives to plastic more evident than in the straw industry, where paper is the new plastic. Aardvark, a Fort Wayne-based company, is carrying on the legacy of its founding father, Marvin Stone. By using natural papers and creating colorful and eye-catching designs, Aardvark straws bring a bit of fun to any occasion, not to mention the peace of mind that comes with sipping responsibly. The company sells its paper straws, which are 100% manufactured in the U.S., to distributors and consumers alike. Consumers love them because they last longer than the typical paper straw, three or more hours in liquid, and decompose in 45 to 90 days, making them sea turtle-friendly.
