SIG has launched the first paper straw market-ready alternative to plastic straws in the beverage carton industry.

Available in the next couple of months, the aseptic packaging giant worked closely with a manufacturing partner to develop paper straws robust enough to pierce the closed straw hole of SIG’s aseptic cartons.

The wrapper for the straw has also been redesigned to help prevent litter by remaining attached to the pack to be recycled along with the rest of the carton.
