Biodegradable and compostable food containers are made from NatureWorks polylactic acid (PLA), which is derived from plants grown in the USA. Our biodegradable containers meet the most stringent scientific requirements for biodegradability and compostability, and are ASTM D6400-99 certified for "compostable plastics". Even though they are as light and strong as plastic, they fully biodegrade when composted.
Instead of using petroleum based plastics which create toxicity and environmental pollution, you can now use our compostable.
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.
