As from today, flashy ORANGE Bio Rizo Straws are now available in Belgium and in Europe. You can find these on our webshop ZotiYuri.com or on bol.com. As from beginning of January 2020, you will find these also in different web stores in Europe. 🙂
As you know, Bio Rizo Straws are 100% Natural, the main ingredients are rice, corn starch and natural products. Because of that, the Bio Rizo straws are also edible. But we do not recommend to eat too many straws, as it is not that good for the waste 🙂
Bio Rizo straws biodegrade in a natural way within 90 days. In water or seawater the Bio Rizo straws are gone in 7 days. In comparison, palstic straws need 200 years to disappear. After you have used the Bio Rizo straws you can put them in a compost bin, put them in the trash can, eat them yourselves or give them as food to your fish.
NATURAL and COLORFUL INGREDIENTS
The Bio Rizo drinking straws are all made of natural materials, such as Rice and Tapioca. No chemicals or chemical adjustments have been made for getting the firm structure. Coming in a myriad of 5 colors which are, the new color orange (carrot), white (rice), green (amaranth spinach), purple (beetroot) and grey (sesame seeds), they’ll surely look stunning and lively on your Instagram, Pinterest and Facebook media posts.
The Bio Rizo Rice Straws are tested to prove it’s safe for users. They got FDA certification for US market and BRC certification for Europe market. In addition, all the straws are manufactured following strictly ISO 22000 standards.
The drinking Straws are made for single use, with cold drinks. Straws can be kept for more than 1 hour in a cold drink. We do not recommend using them for hot drinks as the straws may melt and will give a lightly rice flavor. The straws are fully natural and edible, but we recommend the straws to be used for drinking only. Do not put the straw in a can of a soft drink, as you will have a foaming effect. Once you put the soft drink into the glass, you will not have a foaming effect. There is no contamination whatsoever, it is just a chemical reaction between the gas of the soft drink, the air tightness of the can and the rice straw.
PACKING AND CONSERVATION
The straws are packed in paper bags of 500g – 1.10 lbs. There are about 85 straws per bag, should be stored in a dry place in normal room temperature. They can be kept up to 18 months after production date. The production date is mentioned on the backside of the bag.
