The 3 Rs: Recycle, Reuse, and Reduce

Did you know how often plastic products are recycled or reused?
The answer is rarely. Only some of the plastic products we use are recycled, but the rest usually ended up in landfills.


Impossible Recovery

Nowadays, we rely heavily on the use of plastic products. The constant use of plastic ensures that we will not be able to recover our environment, but we can at least change this outcome.


Possible Prevention

At Eco-Packaging, we believe that if we change, we can prevent further damages to our environment.
It is up to us to decide whether to change or not. So, what is your next move?


Get to Know Corn-Plastics PLA

- PLA stands for Polylactic Acid, or Polylactide, a versatile polymer produced by NatureWorks LLC.
- PLA is made from lactic acid. Lactic acid is made from dextrose by fermentation.
- Dextrose is made from starch and starch is made from carbon dioxide and water.
- The introduction of PLA is the world's first and only performance plastic made from 100% annually renewable resources.

 

Why PLA?

  • PLA is made from renewable resources
  • Fewer fossil resources are required to produce PLA
  • PLA production emits less carbon dioxide because it uses renewable resources as a feedstock.
  • PLA fits into any waste management system with a benefit
  • PLA has performance equal to or better than comparable petroleum-based products in many aspects
