FORT WAYNE -

Fort Wayne-based Aardvark says its paper drinking straws will be sold throughout the U.S. and Canada. Shoppers will be able to buy the straws at more than 900 Party City stores.

Customers will be able to buy 24 paper straws for $2.99 or 80 paper straws for $7.99. The straws will be offered in colored stripes and other designs. Seasonal straws will also be featured throughout the year.

"As the original and only 'Made in the USA' paper straw, we are thrilled to partner with a company like Party City that has a powerful influence across the nation," said Aardvark parent company Precision Products Group Inc. President and Chief Executive Officer Dave Hooe. "We pride ourselves in creating the safest, strongest and most dependable paper straws that coordinate with any celebration and will not deteriorate mid-use."

Aardvark says the eco-friendly and biodegradable paper straws take 45-60 days to decompose.
