PLA is polylactic acid and is made from corn starch. It is a bioplastic that is both compostable & biodegradable.

What's the difference between TPLA, clear Ingeo and Plant Fiber products?

Ingeo products are made from corn starch. TPLA products are made from 70% cornstarch & 30% talc. Plant Fiber products are sourced from multiple fibers, which can include sugar cane, wheatstraw or bamboo. Ingeo products work better with cold materials, TPLA products work with materials under 200 F, while plant fiber products work with both hot and cold materials.

What does biodegradeable mean?

Biodegradation is the chemical breakdown of materials by bacteria or other biological means. For example shipping peanuts that are starch-based will breakdown with water to the starch powder and return easily to soil. Therefore the breakdown of materials with water or micro-organisms return the product to materials found in nature.

Examples of biodegradeable products would include:

BioTuf Bags
