The Cello-Green brand Bio Straws are disposable with food waste—no separation is required—and will fully biodegrade in a municipal composting facility in 180 days or less. The Bio Straws are certified compostable by the Biodegradable Products Institute (BPI) and are Cedar Grove approved. Designed and produced for use in cold beverages only, the straws are not recommended for use in hot beverages over 120 degrees Fahrenheit. The Bio Straws are available in green, white or red, and the straw wrappers are printed with water-soluble inks. Cereplast 7003 and the Bio Straws are made in the USA.

Cereplast Compostable 7003 is BPI certified for industrial compostability* of films and other extruded applications with a maximum thickness of 60 mils (1.50mm). Compostable 7003 has been designed to have an excellent balance of translucency, strength, toughness and processability. This resin can be processed on existing profile extrusion and cast lines and is recommended for profile extrusion applications including straws and similar applications.

Frederic Scheer, Chairman and CEO of Cereplast, stated, "We are proud to be working with an established US company such as Cell-O-Core. Based on current market trends, we anticipate the demand for the Bio Straws to grow significantly in the coming months and years. The Bio Straws can be disposed of and composted with food waste, making them a convenient fit for fast food chains and other restaurants that are making the move toward more sustainable waste removal at their establishments."
