The SPTek ECLIPSE™ Straw is up to the challenge. Satisfying all of the quality requirements for hot, cold, foamy and frozen beverages while remaining environmentally sensitive, our straw is ready to take on the plastic waste crisis.
Made with our patent pending SPTek ECLIPSE™ technology, the straw will completely bio-assimilate into nothing more than CO2, water, and biomass, resulting in zero microplastics.
Our society uses a lot of conventional plastic straws, and once discarded, they take a long time to break down...
How many straws do we use?
How much waste is that?
How long does it last?
Being an alternative to the single-use plastic straw doesn't mean it has less of an environmental impact. There's always more to the story, so we've gathered some important statistics below on the true impact of popular alternatives.
We're revolutionizing single-use plastic and the straw is a perfect place to start.
The SPTek ECLIPSE™ Straw represents a real-world, scalable solution that can be adopted immediately to mitigate the impact of single-use plastics. We are able to work with the world's biggest companies to implement a realistic solution to the plastic waste crisis. By creating a straw that can be adopted by global organizations, we're reducing the burden on consumers regarding the future of our planet. We're changing the plastic together, one straw at a time.
Our straw works like magic (that's backed by science) to ensure plastic lasts months, not centuries.
Made with our patent pending SPTek ECLIPSE™ bio-assimilation technology, the straw will turn into nothing more than CO2, water and biomass in 12-42 months. That's right, no microplastics.
*Mass production of plastic (including single-use straws) didn't start until the mid-20th century! Since the material has only been around for a little over a century, it's impossible to know exactly how long it will take to decompose. Recent estimates say it could take over 450 years, but we can't know for sure. In fact, these fragments of plastic or microplastics may never truly decompose...
Plastic is one of the most ubiquitous materials on the planet, and the proliferation of microplastics is one of our greatest challenges. By providing a scalable solution that can be implemented immediately, we can truly make a difference.
