What are BioStixTM?

As a proud American manufacturer of branded swizzle sticks, stirrers & picks, Royer Corporation takes great pride in producing custom, eco-friendly products that leave a lasting impression. While all of our products are 100% recyclable, we are now able to offer our iconic stirrers and picks in material that is biodegradable.

BioStix™ are crafted with Royer’s cutting-edge plastic additive, which allows us to produce eco-friendly products that have the same mechanical characteristics as traditional, non-degradable items. This is key, as the ability to customize stirrers and picks with unique shapes, sizes and colors is not compromised. With BioStix™, you get fully functional, environmentally friendly swizzle sticks—without sacrificing the branding value that Royer Corporation has delivered to clients for over four decades.

Royer’s BioStix™ fully biodegrade wherever they are disposed (where other things are biodegrading anaerobically and aerobically):

  • In Ocean or Fresh Water
  • In Landfills
  • In Compost (backyard as well as commercial facilities)
  • Buried in the ground or littered
  • In agriculture and erosion-control settings
