We are proud to support this educative exhibition, helping the transition towards a more circular economy. CelluStraw™, a fiber-based solution for paper straws, was specially designed to address the emerging initiatives to phase out single-use plastic straws.
Our sustainable solutions
Whatever the end-use or the type of material used, single-use products should not end in any oceans and waterways. In order to better protect our planet, the use of appropriate waste streams to manage the product’s end-of-life is encouraged.
It is estimated that out of the 8 million tons of plastic that enters the world’s oceans every year, the majority originates from land-based everyday post-consumer waste leakages, such as plastic bags, cigarette lighters or plastic straws.
Ahlstrom-Munksjö is committed to contribute to a better everyday life by providing solutions that make end products more sustainable, better protect people and our planet.
