I want to know where my strow come from

Not all paper straws are the same

What happens when u purchase paper straws from a supplier outside of european regulation jurisdiction

"It is worrying that paper, which is the second most used food packaging after plastics is used in contact with our food without a safety net. With the ambitious ban on single-use plastic around the corner, the EU must enture that alternatives such as paper and board food packaging are safe for consumers."

Monique Gayens, Director General of The European Consumer Organisation

"The Office for Consumer Protection and Veterinary Affairs for the Canton of St. Gallen in Switzerland has reported to have found paper drinking straws contaminated with chloropropanois, mineral oil hydrocarbons, and photoinitiators."

"Chloropropanols can be carcinogenic, and they can be formed during the paper's production. Minelar oil hydrocarbons exist as different fractions, can be carcinogenic and mutagenic, and can enter food contact with processing equipment, or though recycling and using previously contaminated paper. The primary source of photoinitiators are printing inks."
