Our Clear PLA Multi Fit Lid is made from 100% renewable sources (in fact, they're made from the waste products of other industries), and degrades in a commercial composting facility.
• 100% suitable for food use.
• Derived from corn which is a renewable resource
• PLA products are compostable in industrial composting facilities
• PLA is cost competitive with regular petroleum-based resins such as PET and most likely cost advantaged in the future given rising petroleum prices
• Producing PLA uses 65% less energy than producing conventional plastics
• Producing PLA creates 68% fewer greenhouse gases than producing conventional plastics
• PLA contains no toxins. this product has no effects on the flavours of the food (fewer indeed, we believe, than the non-renewable alternatives available).
