What does Nature Bio do?

For more than a decade, Nature Bio has been creating a cleaner world and a healthier global product marketplace.

We also provide our business partners with research, development and toll-manufacturing services for biobased materials and other applications.

Our products do not actually expire. Any date codes seen on the products are indicated as best before dates and are placed on box to adhere to specific local production labeling requirements.

However, all our products are 100% safe for use months and even years after the past end date. We hope you don’t hold on to our straws for too long though – they’re meant to be enjoyed versus as a decorative storage item!
