Corn PLA Straws
World Centric biodegradable and compostable cold cups are made from NatureWorks polylactic acid (PLA), which is derived from plants grown in the USA. Our cups meet the most stringent scientific requirements for biodegradabilityandcompostability, 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 alternatives.
- Are best used for beverages below 110F
- Need to be stored below 110F and away from heat, hot surfaces and direct sunlight
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.
