OSTONE - SUPER RESISTANT PAPER STRAW

SIRET - 853 578 847 00016 | CODE NAF – 4690Z

OSTONE is a French company offering to actors of the restoration of consumer and event two alternatives ecological, economic and resistant to plastic straw. We currently offer the following two products.

Mineral Paper Straw| Strong Fibers Straw

Our company is born from a statement showing a desire for change on the part of consumers and businesses. This change in mentality, particularly towards the misuse of disposable plastic, has led to new French and European legislation. This environmental dimension has also led companies to think about a social-environmental dimension. OSTONE is the result of a growing demand for viable alternatives for both the environment and the consumer.

 

OSTONE - SUPER RESISTANT PAPER STRAW

 

OUR 3 VALUES

 

OSTONE AN ECOLOGIC SUPER RESISTANT STRAW

ECOLOGICAL

Our first solution is photodegradable in nature in 12 months, our second solution is biodegradable 4 months. The materials used are 90% biobased for straw mineral paper and 100% straw resistant fiber. Our products are recyclable and compostable in conventional centers.

OSTONE AN ECONOMIC SUPER RESISTANT STRAW
ECONOMIC

Our 2 unique solutions in the world have a very affordable price compared to other viable alternatives on the market. We want our customers to be fully involved in the change and evolution of the straw. Our 2 solutions are at the same price.

 OSTONE 2 SUPER RESISTANT STRAWS
 RESISTANTES

Our mineral paper straws are currently the strongest on the market, able to withstand 2 hours in water at 100 ° C.

Our strong fibers straw is able to withstand 1 hour in water at 100 ° C.

AN EVOLVING EUROPEAN LEGISLATION

 

IN EUROPE

In January 2021, a European law will ban to sell or provide some single-use plastic products such as plastic straws.

IN FRANCE

France has anticipated this legislation and the European calendar by advancing this bill to January 2020. The Environmental Code will also apply this law to plates, cutlery, cups and plastic bags.

 

MANDATORY BIO-SOURCED MATERIAL PERCENTAGE

The decree of August 30, 2016 specifies the minimum bio-sourced content of compostable disposable tableware. It will increase gradually:

-50% in January 2020

-60 % in January 2025

Bio-sourced products are non-food industrial products obtained from renewable raw materials derived from biomass (plants for example) such as corn starch, textile or cellulose fibers ...

The plastic straws will be on the list of the banned products on the French market for January 2020.

 

OUR STRAWS

The percentage of bio-sourced materials that our straws are made of is much higher than the 2020 or 2025 bill.

-Mineral paper straw made of 90% bio-sourced materials

-Resistant fibers straw made of 100% bio-sourced materials

  

A DESIRE TO CHANGE BUT CHOOSE THE RIGHT ALTERNATIVE

 

OSTONE 2 INNOVATIVE STRAWS - SUPER RESISTANT CHOOSE YOUR PAPER STRAW

 

CLASSIC PAPER STRAW ...

Several companies have tried to substitute their plastic straws with paper straws. Unfortunately, it was a failure for the majority. Conventional paper straws have a limited life in contact with water (~ 6 minutes). This degradation alters the taste of the drink and affects the consumer experience.

PLA GREENWASHING

OSTONE engages in a war against straws in PLA! PLA-based straws are not ecological alternatives. This product contains only 69% of biobased material. Due to their complex composition these straws are not recyclable in conventional centers. The 31% of toxic plastic component will be deposited in nature and at the bottom of the oceans in the form of "microplastic". This alternative is a solution for groups that want to economically upgrade in the 2021 legislation. Note that the government has not yet announced its decision on its authorization for 2021.

 

1st SOLUTION OSTONE

OSTONE 1 INNOVATIVE STRAW SOLUTION - SUPER RESISTANT STONE PAPER STRAW
 

THE PAPER OF THE 21ST CENTURY

Mineral paper is one of the most revolutionary innovations of the 21st century. More than two millennia ago, China created the first paper manufacturing process.

Today, it has developed a new technique: the production of waterproof paper without fiber. Made from stone residues, this patented eco-friendly paper is usually composed of 80% mineral powder [CaC03] and 20% non-toxic raw polymer [HDPE].

 

OSTONE STONE PAPER STRAW - NON-TOXIC GREEN PAPER SUPER RESISTANT PAPER STRAW

 

FIRST INNOVATIVE MATERIAL

Smooth with a surprisingly "peach skin“ feel, the mineral paper is also distinguished by its remarkable physical properties: resistant to both hot and cold water, 40 times stronger than cellulose paper, and also photodegradable, recyclable and compostable.

 

A RESISTANT AND ECOLOGICAL MIXTURE
OSTONE combines different materials to design this eco-friendly straw. Our straws are made of:

50% FSC cellulose paper

40% stone powder [calcium carbonate CaCo3]

10% brut polymer HDPE

Our mineral straws are resistant to stains, water, fat, wear, mold, moths and do not alter the taste of the beverage when it is used.

 

ECOLOGICAL STRAW

The mineral paper is nontoxic: it does not pollute the environment. No chemical component: no bleaching agents, acids, alkalis, heavy metals, halogens or phthalates. Our mixture of cellulose paper and mineral paper keeps the characteristics of the mineral paper while reducing the percentage of HDPE used.

 

OSTONE A CERTIFIED STRAW

Our mineral paper straw has certification:

SGS ISO 9001

Direct Food Contact Food Grade FDA

Cradle to Cradle certified mineral paper SILVER

FSC certified (Forest Stewardship Council)

RoHS and REACH certified

OSTONE A STONE-BASED STRAW - ECOLOGICAL PAPER CERTIFIED FSC CRADLE TO CRADLE

 

OUR PRODUCTION

OSTONE is based in France and our production is based in Asia close to one of the few factories that are accredited to manufacture this paper with exceptional properties. We deliver our products all over Europe (Incoterm DDP). Our production capacity is 50 million OSTONE straws per month. (around 20 containers 40 feet per month)

 

ORIGIN OF OUR RAW MATERIALS

Our wood pulp, our stone powder and our polymer come exclusively from suppliers based in Asia. Our stone powder is not synthesized in the laboratory, we use natural stone from certified, strictly controlled quarries.

The cellulose-based paper we use in our 2 straws comes from sustainably managed forests with Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certification.

2nd SOLUTION OSTONE

 OSTONE SECOND SOLUTION STRAW OF SUPER RESISTANT CELLULOSE FIBERS - A SUPER-RESISTANT PAPER STRAW
 
AN EXCEPTIONAL CELLULOSE FIBERS

A complex technique that will optimize the position of cellulose fibers in such a way as to improve the strength of the overall paper structure.

In addition, a biodegradable certified glue for food contact is added, allowing the fibers to attach to each other, thus locking the structure. The wet filaments are then dried. By retracting, they form a very strong cellulose fiber.

 

 

ECOLOGICAL INTERMEDIATE

This fiber is very resistant, giving an exceptional stiffness to this paper, 20 times stronger than conventional paper, 100% biodegradable and recyclable in nature in a few months. This formula is an intermediary between the strength of the mineral straw and the biodegradable aspect of traditional paper straw.
