Q: What is PLA?
A: Polylactic acid or polylactide (PLA) is a biodegradable, thermoplastic, aliphatic polyester derived from renewable resources, such as corn starch (in the U.S.) or sugarcanes (rest of world). Although PLAhas been known for more than a century, it has only been of commercial interest in recent years, in light of its biodegradability.
Corn plastics are plastics made from PLA. Corn plastic products look and feel just like regular plastic, but they are 100% biodegradable and 100% compostable. Corn is a renewable resource which makes corn plastics much more sustainable than regular plastic which is made from petroleum.
These products are BPI (Biodegradables Product Institute) Certified.
Please note that composting is required for biodegradation. These cups will biodegrade within 180 days in a commercial composting facility but can take up to a year or more to biodegrade in a home composting system.
