The 4th R - Renewable
Often, we all talk about 3Rs: Recycle, Reuse, and Reduce. However, in real life, 3 Rs are somewhat challenging to practice at all time. But what about the 4th R – Renewable
If it can’t be recycled, if it’s not reusable, and if we can’t reduce the usage, but at least, we can use products that are natural and renewable to minimize the impact to our environment.
Impossible Recovery & Possible Prevention
Nowadays, we heavily rely on the use of plastic products on a daily basis. The constant use of plastic ensures that we will not be able to recover our environment, but we can at least reduce the impact by switching to greener products.
Get to Know Compostable Materials
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.
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
