EcoAid Bioplastic Straws are made from PLA which stands for “Polylactide” and is produced by Nature works, LLC in America. It is derived from corn sugar or dextrose that comes from plants with starch. The dextrose is fermented and distilled into lactic acid.
The lactic acid is then transformed into plastic-like resin called PLA, which can be used in conventional plastic machines. PLA comes from renewable resources.
The PLA products are compostable. These products will usually compost within 47 days in a commercial composting facility and may take 12 months or more in a home composting system. Best results in a commercial composting facility.
Our bioplastic material is comparable in strength and weight to normal plastic, yet they are made from readily renewable resources. They are compostable as compared to the petroleum-based plastic items which are polluting and do not break down.
