Roc Paper Straws, the nation’s newest paper straw manufacturer, is on a mission to help save the planet

August 16, 2022

Owners Karrie and Kathryn Laughton have officially opened Roc Paper Straws, a new paper straw manufacturing company in Rochester, New York, that will make and distribute a range of standard and custom-designed high-quality, eco-friendly paper drinking straws throughout the United States.

The company is one of only a handful of paper straw manufacturers in the United States, and the only one in New York State and the northeast.

Roc Paper Straws was born out of need and a mission. Karrie is the owner of Lux Lounge, a popular and long-standing bar, located in Rochester’s trendy South Wedge neighborhood. Lux uses a lot of straws. And like her customers, Karrie wanted to do what she could to protect the environment. Replacing plastic straws with paper straws was one way she could do that.
