Plastic products are notorious for leaching toxic chemicals into food. This is because disposable plastics are treated with chemical mixtures including dyes, bleach and ink.
Some of these products are safe and some are not so safe.
On January 16, 2020, China promulgated the opinions on further strengthening the Control of plastic pollution (plastic ban). Since then, various provinces and cities have issued plans for the treatment of plastic pollution. Relevant regulations have been made to prohibit the use of disposable plastic straws, plastic bags, plastic tableware and hotel supplies. Disposable straws made of biodegradable materials are more environmentally friendly because they do not leave toxic chemicals or residues. In addition, over time, these products will degrade and release nutrients that are good for the earth into the soil. However, we should pay attention to the safety of food contact even straws are made from biodegradable materials.
BOXAI independently developed CPLA milk tea straw, not only heat resistance can reach 100C, the level of food safety is also much higher than the PLA+PBS straw in the market.
