Complete consumption by micro-organism and return to compounds found in nature. Simply, if you throw 100% biodegradable product on the ground, it will degrade into natural compounds and be absorbed into the soil in 30-60 days.
What is Sustainable Sources (annually renewable resourse)
Plants sources are sustainable if they are renewable in a very short period of time, (less than 1 year).
Paper in comparison is not sustainable since it is made from trees. Trees take 30-40 years to reach maturity.
What is Carbon Footprint
A carbon footprint is a measure of the impact of human activities on the environment in terms of the amount of green house gases produced, measured in units of carbon dioxide.
It is useful for individuals and organizations to conceptualize their impact in contributing to global warming. A carbon footprint can be seen as a subset of earlier uses of the concept of ecological footprints. Ecological footprint being the greater impact of many carbon foot prints.
What does it mean Composting
Composting is breaking down of organic material by bacteria, eg. yeasts and fungi into healthy fertile soil. Product will break down completely in a compost pile for use in waste management or biogas production.
Recycling is a process to change (waste) materials into new products to prevent waste of potentially useful materials. Reducing the consumption of fresh raw materials, reducing energy usage, reducing air pollution (from incineration) and water pollution (from landfilling) by reducing the need for "conventional" waste disposal. Greenhouse gas emissions are lower compared to plastic production.
Recycling is a key component of modern waste reduction and is the third component of the concept, "Reduce, Re-use and Recycle", waste hierarchy.
There are some ISO standards related to recycling for plastics waste and for environmental management control of recycling practices.
What is Bagasse
Bagasse is the fibrous matter that remains after sugarcane or sorghum stalks are crushed to extract their juice. It is used as a biofuel and in the manufacture of pulp and building materials
What is Corn Starch
Corn starch is obtained from the endosperm of the corn kernel. Corn starch is a popular food ingredient used in thickening sauces or soups, and is used in making corn syrup and other sugars.
What is Biodegradable plastic
A solution to the environmental disaster is biodegradable plastic.
Bioplastics are a new generation of compostable & biodegradable plastics which are made from readily renewable resources such as corn, soybeans, potato, etc.
What is PLA plastic
PLA stands for Poly Lactic Acid and it is the chemical name of a plastic made from corn, tops the list as the most talked-about alternative. PLA decomposes into water and carbon dioxide in 47 to 90 days. But conditions have to be just right to achieve these kind of result. PLA breaks down most efficiently in commercial composting facilities at high temperatures.
PLA plastics look and act like the traditional petroleum base plastics (PS, PP and PET) but it is very environmental friendly.
The PLA clear products are heat resistant to 110 degrees Fahrenheit. So, PLA products are good for cold products. PLA is not microwave safe, but PLA is freezer safe.
What is CPLA plastic
CPLA (modified PLA) Crystallized nature-based material made from corn starch, an annually renewable resource. CPLA is a translucent bio-plastic that stands up to hot foods and beverages in limited applications (such as lids for cups, knife, spoon, fork, stirrer) . This material tolerance up to 200 degrees Fahrenheit. They are also 100% biodegradable and compostable.
At the end of life, PLA based products can be recycled or composted in a commercial composting facilities.
