Recycled within circular economy

Renewable wood fiber material is the most ecological choice for Dolea drinking straw. Dolea’s virgin material can be recycled as fiber in a conventional paper recycling process according to PAP 21 standard. It can be completely repulped and reused as highly valued recycled material and a genuine part of the circular economy.


No stain on nature

Dolea straw is biodegradable, leaving no remains to land or ocean. Both the base fiber material as well as the coating of the board are compostable. If not recycled, Dolea straws take about the same time a maple leaf to biodegrade.


Zero glue

Dolea straws contain no additional ingredients, like glue. As natural as possible by the raw material choice, simultaneously Dolea straws have a sturdy, liquid-resistant structure and enjoyable drinking experience. The straws will not leak melting glue in your mouth. Touch and feel second to none.
