Cafes, restaurants and cafeterias require paper products for their look, printability and general customer acceptance. Technologically, it's very hard to make something similar to paper cups from alternative fibers. We are still researching to see if paper cups and bowls can be made from a mix of alternative fibers, recycled fibers and responsibly managed wood/paper fibers to create a more sustainable product.
|These products are BPI (Biodegradables Product Institute) Certified.|
Please note, composting is required for biodegradation. These compostable cups will biodegrade within 30 days in a commercial composting facility, and within 90 days 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 PLAhas been known for more than a century, it has only been of commercial interest in recent years, in light of its biodegradability.
