What makes Tembo Paper’s straws special?
Our paper straws are the only ones in the world that can withstand liquid immersion for up to 3 hours without deforming or disintegrating at the ends. There’s no effect on the taste or fizziness of drinks, and users get a completely safe drinking experience.
Long lasting, safe and tasteless paper straws
The first thing you need is the right materials. So, we partnered with two world-leading companies, both of whom are fully-invested in our sustainable effort; delfort and Henkel.
Tembo Paper’s straws are made using delfort’s unique FibreStraw® technology; soil and marine-degradable paper made with renewal materials, zero PFASs, and certified pulp from responsible managed forests. And, our paper straws need to be held together by adhesive, and Henkel’s AQUENCE® ST product is a brilliant food-safe, high-resistance glue. Its quality and strength mean that we can minimise the amount of adhesive in our paper straws, increasing sustainability and reducing production costs.
Tembo Paper brings these fine materials together, and crafts them into high-quality paper straw products. Our machines use our unique vertical spiralling technology, meaning we can produce u-shaped, telescopic, and straight paper straws at a high volume with low waste.
Food safety and Sustainability Standards
We follow strict food safety standards, and our paper and glue is BPO and GMO free.
We’re a member of the Sustainable Packaging Coalition (SPC) in the US; a membership-based organization that believes in the power of industry to make packaging more sustainable.
SPC is a trademark project of GreenBlue, which is a nonprofit organization dedicated to the sustainable use of materials in society. Together, we work towards innovation and best practices to promote the creation of a more sustainable materials economy.
