Holy City Straw Company was established to eliminate single use plastic straws!
These days, eco-conscious consumers are driving change by buying more eco-friendly products.
In the USA roughly 500 million plastic straws are used every day.
Over 350 cities have banned the use of plastic bags, with many of them also banning plastic straws.
Plastic straws are used once and then tossed in the garbage, which end up in our landfills and oceans, where they harm marine life and release toxic pollutants.
When you opt for our biodegradable, eco-friendly straws, you’re reducing the number of harmful plastics that end up in fragile ecosystems worldwide.
Show your customers that you’re paying attention, and swap out your plastic straws or less desirable paper straws with a simple biodegradable alternative. A small change with big results.
Holy City Straw Company will donate 5% of all profits to the Charleston Aquarium's Sea Turtle Rescue Unit.

Plant-Based Straws ("PLA")
Our line of compostable straws are made from PLA, a biodegradable resin made from corn starch.
PLA straws wont get soggy in your drink and are ideal for warm and icy cold drinks, water, coffee, soda, shakes, and smoothies.
Our PLA straws are ASTM D6400-99 certified for compostable plastics.
The Current Challenge: PLA straws must be taken to an industrial grade composting facility to fully become an eco-friendly option.
Our Solution: We have partnered with a local industrial composting facility to ensure that the straws get composted properly and don't end up back in our oceans
