Why Choose Intrinsic Straws

Why choose Intrinsic Paper Straws?


Our straws are made from sustainably sourced materials which are biodegradable, thus offering a real eco-friendly alternative to traditional plastic straws.

Food Safe

All our printing inks are DFC (Direct Food Contact) approved and are compliant with BfR, EU (1935/2004, 10/2001) and US (FDA) regulations.

Long Lasting

Designed to deliver outstanding drink performance, ensuring shape and integrity of straw is retained for many hours and not fall apart instantly.

Sip in Comfort

Product aesthetics (inc. touch / feel) carefully selected in order to create a premium drinking straw that looks great and comfortable on your lip.


Whether it be fizzy drinks, smoothies, milkshakes or cocktails, our paper straws are fully functional for use with various cold beverages.

Reduced Impact

Paper is a natural fibre that disintegrates much more quickly than plastic, thus reducing their impact on the World around us.
