OMAO Biodegradable Straws - Drink guilt free!
Play Video

You can use OMAO straws as you normally would with any traditional plastic straw, but without worrying about the disposal method as it is truly biodegradable. You can throw it away after you are done, knowing the straw will disappear in about 90 days! While most of the so-called "green" straws are made of PLA (Polylactic acid, or "corn-plastic"), OMAO straws are made of PHA (Polyhydroxyalkanoates), a naturally-occurring material derived from vegetable oil that will naturally breakdown to CO2 and H2O.

FAQ

How are OMAO straws better than paper straws?

OMAO straws do not fall apart in your drink nor do they alter the taste during consumption. When you drink your iced coffee and cocktails, you can use OMAO straws as you normally would with any traditional plastic straw, but without worrying about hurting the environment because they are truly biodegradable. You can throw it away after you are done, knowing the used straw will disappear in about 90 days!

Are OMAO straws recyclable and/or compostable?

Home compostable. OMAO straws are fully biodegradable and non-toxic, earth-friendly alternatives to plastic straws, and will decompose in about 90 days.

What kind of material are OMAO straws made of?

OMAO straws are made of PHA (Polyhydroxyalkanoates), an advanced, groundbreaking bioplastic that will naturally breakdown to CO2 and H2O. PHA is a naturally-occurring material derived from vegetable oil.

What makes OMAO straws different from all the other ‘green’ straws I’ve seen?

Most of the so-called ‘green’ straws are made of PLA (Polylactic acid, or ‘corn-plastic). PLA straws only break down in a strictly controlled composting environment. Indeed, PLA straws could take anywhere from 100 to 1,000 years to decompose in a landfill, just as bad as traditional petroleum-based plastic straws!

Love these biodegradable straws. I can’t tell a difference between OMAO straws and those traditional plastic ones. They work perfectly well.
