Yes you read that correctly, marine degradable straws will be in stock soon! Yes this is a very big deal!
We tested them here at the office and in 4 short weeks, in an office plant, the straw disappeared, it completely degraded back to dirt. We also tested in a glass of water, the water was city water with chlorine, but is disappearing as well. This is 100% legitimate, the material is called PHA; this material is going to be the next big thing.

The long word for PHA is polyhydroxyalkanoate. What it means to you is that it is a product with a short life span that is transforming the narrative around disposable plastics.
