What is PLA?

EnviroTakeout’s selection of PLA and CPLA lined products are made from polylactic acid (PLA) which is made from corn starch. This material is a great alternative to harmful plastic and does not include petroleum which is found in most plastic products. Non toxic and renewable, this material is a great eco-friendly substitute to plastic.

PLA products can take up to 6 months to compost fully in an official commercial composting facility. Some of our products such as our PLA clear cup lids are made from CPLA which is a modified version of PLA. CPLA products are designed to withstand hotter temperatures so they can be used with coffee, tea, and other hot beverages or dishes. PLA lined products such as our selection of PLA lined hinged lid containers provide superior moisture and grease barrier protection for hot foods to ensure that customers can enjoy their meals without worrying about leaks or spills.

It is important to note that PLA products need to be separated when recycled and taken to a composting facility.
