August 7 coincides with the beginning of autumn in the 24th solar term.
On this day, everyone was busy looking for their first cup of milk tea in autumn, but just when everyone drank with relish and sunburned happily, the editor found a question, do you know about the straw of the first cup of milk tea in autumn?
Under the influence of the “plastic restriction order”, traditional plastic straws have faded out of the market, replaced by paper straws and PLA degradable plastic straws, Xiaobian found in the survey that international brands such as Starbucks, McDonald’s, KFC, Burger King and other international brands use paper straws; However, domestic brands such as Naixue’s tea, Heytea, and Michelle Bingcheng use degradable plastic straws, and their materials are more environmentally friendly and costier than traditional straws!
According to Xiaobian observation, paper straws and PLA degradable straws are essentially environmental protection-oriented, as for whether there is a difference between domestic and foreign, there is indeed not much sophistication, Xiaobian feels that because the paper straw is more complained after the implementation in China, so it is changed to a more expensive PLA degradable straw. Today, I would like to take you to understand the difference between traditional straws and degradable straws.
As soon as the paper straw boom passed, it was followed by PLA degradable straws, which are resistant to temperatures from -10 °C to 80 °C, which is closer to traditional plastic straws, and has the physical properties of similar traditional plastic straws, and has higher stability. Degradable straws add food-grade eco-degradation additives to the production process, so that plastics that would have taken at least hundreds of years to completely degrade are accelerated to complete degradation into water and carbon dioxide within 2-3 years. However, in appearance, traditional straws are more diverse, colorful, bendable and so on, but traditional straws take a hundred years to completely degrade, which is undoubtedly a devastating disaster for the nature on which we live. Therefore, PLA degradable straws are the best among many straws and the best partner for milk tea!
Protecting the environment is everyone’s responsibility! Only by taking our homes seriously can nature give us better gifts!
