What’s the Difference between Traditional Plastics and PLA, or Corn Plastic?
Traditional plastics are constructed from petroleum, which is one of the world’s most valuable but non-renewable resources. In contrast, polylactic acid (“PLA”) is made from annually renewable resources, not oil, and can, therefore, be composted to help divert waste from landfills. In fact, composting is a great way to both improve vital soil resources and divert landfill waste.

These Eco-Products disposable cups are 100% certified compostable so that you can be assured your drinking cup returns straight to the soil. Please compost these PLA products in commercial compost facilities as they are not compatible with your home compost.
