FORT WAYNE, IN, Aug. 7, 2018 (Local News) -The recent movement to reduce single-use plastic has meant big business for a Fort Wayne company.

Aardvark Straws came to Fort Wayne a little over 10 years ago and began manufacturing paper straws in 2007 when its parent company, Precision Products Group Inc., which manufactures small-size cylindrical tubing solutions, was asked to make a more environmentally friendly straw.

Business has picked up in the past two to three years, especially as of late.
