Aardvark creates unique eco-friendly yet durable paper drinking straws manufactured using 100% chemical free and FDA food-grade approved ink. Aardvark’s ‘Made in the USA’ label is the only safe brand consumers should trust not to bleed or decompose in their beverages.


Our Story

Aardvark paper straws were re-introduced in response to an anti-plastic moment. The straws are made in the USA and are the most sustainable and durable.

Our Story

In 1888, a man named Marvin Stone invented the original paper straw and patented his idea. That patent became the foundation for the company Stone later created—the same company that manufactures Aardvark®, The Original Paper Straw, today. Stone’s patent and his innovative spirit for all things round and tubular lives on with Aardvark®.



Aardvark paper straws were introduced in 2007, in response to a growing anti-plastic movement. Restaurants, hospitals, and other services industries, the main buyers of plastic straws in the US, were forced to look for more sustainable, eco-friendly options.

As a leading US manufacturer of small-size cylindrical tubing solutions, Precision Products Group was asked to create a straw that was more environmentally friendly. The answer was in their archives: Marvin Stone’s original 1888 patent for the first paper straw. Putting a modern spin on Stone’s original concept, Aardvark®  was able to create a straw, using natural papers, that was more sustainable and more durable than any other paper straw on the market. 

Today, Aardvark® paper straws can be found at retailers that offer Made in the USA and Eco-Friendly paper straw products. Aardvark® paper straws are the only paper straws on the market that are made in the USA, use only FDA compliant, food-grade materials, and are biodegradable and compostable.
