Who We are: The Sustainable Agave Company strives to eliminate agave waste and eliminate single use plastics. We upcycle agave waste as a primary ingredient to create environmentally safe, biodegradable and compostable agave products. Single-use plastics are ubiquitous and environmentally devastating - it is our goal to take these products off the market and out of circulation. We started with straws, and the demand for much more has led us to develop a portfolio of agave fiber products for the foodservice and retail industries. We are constantly innovating - creating new products from agave fiber.
