Introducing PLA Packaging,
A sustainable solution

PLA stands for Polylactic Acid, and is commonly known as corn plastic. It's produced under controlled conditions using renewable resources such as corn starch or sugarcane.

PLA packaging products can be fully degraded into carbon dioxide and water after composting without environmental pollution. Want to see how PLA compares to other thermal insulates? Read our thermal insulates comparison blog here.
