We are doing away with plastic straws and are also looking for alternatives. 

One I saw recently was a pasta straw: https://www.pastastraws.org/

and this one...

We are going to see if one of our local Italian Restaurants can make the pasta straws.

We us Stainless Steel straws.  Three different sizes.  Wash, rinse, sanitize, repeat.

We have a much larger and intricate sustainability program then most other distilleries so I wouldn't recommend everything we do to everybody but this one is great. We purchase compostable napkins and straws for our tasting room and add them to our organic compost matter from he tasting room itself instead of throwing them in the trash. We acquire these from Gordon Food Service, which you probably have in your market. They also have compostable to go containers for food as well as compostable "silverware". If you don't have a GFS in your market try the other restaurant supply stores. It essentially comes out to the same price as the non compostable. The recipients of our compost have not complained about them not breaking down etc.
