I’m old enough to remember paper straws from the days before everything began to be made of plastic. So I was delighted to see the revival of the paper straw on this website. “ They’re Safe And FDA Food Grade Compliant Approved. Aardvark® only uses materials that are non-toxic, BPA-free and ELEMENTAL chlorine free. In fact, many straws made overseas claim to use safe inks, but the colorants and the processes used to dry the inks are anything but safe. Aardvark® doesn’t use un-safe dyes or materials in our straws, and we have had independent, 3rd party testing done to prove it. We’re proud to say that Aardvark paper straws are the strongest, longest lasting on the market. All other paper straws on the market are made in China. But Aardvark straws are 100% Made in the USA — and they always have been. Ours is the original paper straw, based on a design patented by Marvin Stone in 1888. ”
