1. If you could kindly send me a break down for the cost of one straw (Including cost of glue and paper) that would be much appreciated.
The cost of making each paper straw: $0.0018096, see details:
Each straw : 1.2g (standard straw size: diameter 6 mm, length 197 mm)
So 1000 pieces straw weight 1.2kgs.
1.2 kgs. straw made of: 1/10 glue, cost 1.7$ per kg (food grade glue cost: 1700$/ton)
9/10*(2/3) 120 gsm paper, 1.47 $ per kg (food grade middle paper & inside paper cost: 1470$/ton)
9/10*(1/3) 60 gsm paper, 1.52 $ per kg, (food grade surface paper cost: 1520$/ton)
So 1.2 kgs straw cost =1.2*[1/10*1.7+9/10*(2/3)*1.47+ 9/10*(1/3)*1.52]=$1.8096
