Best before 4 months from manufacturing according to current test results. Longer tests are underway. Results will be provided as soon as they are available.

Packaging?

Primary (for each straw) - Paper

Secondary - boxes, with moisture-absorbing desiccant and cushioning to protect straws.
Please note that we are in the process of exploring more eco-friendly alternatives such as seaweed and orange fiber packaging.

Straws are US FDA approved. The factory is US FDA, GMP, and HACCP certified. Factory quality checks happen periodically. We would be happy to share the weekly or monthly results as needed. Tests in HK labs are ready as well. Happy to share them if needed.

Product Performance?

In our testing with hot drinks, the straws lasted for 40 mins (Avg. of 5 people) before bending in the lower half, however they were still functional, and all our subjects could successfully finish their entire drink. In our tests, we observed that our straws lasted 1.2 - 1.5 times longer than paper straws.
