What is CPLA:
CPLA/PLA products are made from polylactic acid (PLA) which is made from corn starch.

Non toxic and renewable, this material is a great eco-friendly substitute to plastic. CPLA products are designed to withstand hotter temperatures so they can be used with coffee, tea, and other hot beverages or dishes. Learn more
