Stephenson’s new Manchester Bee Paper Sip Straw is suitable for use in rocks glasses.

Light equipment distributor Stephensons has added to its Manchester Bee Paper Straw series.

Initially conceived as part of a project to help reduce single-use plastic waste in the Greater Manchester region, the range was first launched 12 months ago in partnership with the Greater Manchester Combined Authority.

A donation from each box of straws sold in the range is made to the We Love MCR Charity. So far over £1,000 has already been raised to help young people and communities across the city.

The latest addition is the Manchester Bee Paper Sip Straw. At 5.5” (14cm) with a small bore, it is suitable for cocktails, mixed drinks and any beverage served in a rocks glass.

The sustainable straw is 3ply, printed with soy ink and made from food safe, sustainable paper. It’s also FSC certified, 100% recyclable and said to be much stronger than many paper alternatives.

The bee sip straw will be offered at a specially discounted price for hospitality operators, with purchasers asked if they would consider signing the Plastic Free GM Pledge.
