Our new utensils are made from TPLA 70% non-GMO PLA and 30% talc. They are also heat resistant up to 200 degrees F, and are certified under ASTM-6400 standards and now have BPI Certification.
Most current utensils on the market made from corn starch are NOT compostable. Current technology does not allow for manufacturing corn starch utensils without adding some plastic fillers. These are normally priced cheaper and do not meet compostability standards. Please be aware that these corn starch utensils are not compostable or biodegradable.
These utensils will take 120+ days to compost in a commercial composting facility. Home composting is not recommended and it may take 1-2 yrs to compost in a home composting system.
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 PLA has been known for more than a century, it has only been of commercial interest in recent years, in light of its biodegradability.
|World Centric utensils are certified compostable by the Biodegradable Products Institute and meet ASTM standards for compostability.
