SETTER-PAPERSTIX are made of TCF (Total Chlorine Free) cellulose. Contrary to plastic sticks, our products are made of raw materials from a renewable source from controlled forest certification schemes (PEFC and FSC®), unlike the crude oil used as the raw material for PP sticks, which will only be available for a limited number of years.

SETTER-PAPERSTIX dissolve completely, which makes them biodegradable and therefore they pose no threat to the environment.

We at SETTER Germany take our responsibility for the environment and the future generations of our children very seriously and therefore use a few environmentally harmful materials as possible when manufacturing our sticks. We are a longstanding member of the FSC® (Forest Stewardship Council®). FSC-C113192 and PEFC (Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification Schemes) PEFC-BV/CdC/8666434.
