PLA Biodegradable Plastic Straw

Biodegradable plastic straws are also called PLA. The raw materials of these straws are made from vegetable starch and fat (usually corn).

Since these straws are made from plants, most straws will decompose naturally in commercial composting facilities.

Biodegradable straws are a great way to protect your teeth while protecting the environment.

Thousands of straws are used every day all over the world. Replacing them with biodegradable straws can greatly reduce the amount of plastic in the environment.

 PLA is biodegradable and has properties similar to polypropylene (PP), polyethylene (PE) or polystyrene (PS).

It can be produced using existing manufacturing equipment (equipment designed and originally used for petrochemical plastics).

This makes production relatively cost effective. Therefore, PLA has the second largest yield of any bioplastic (the most common one is commonly referred to as thermoplastic starch).

The PLA \”biodegradable\” straw is positioned as a straw made of plants that can decompose in the environment.

They are made from natural plant materials, such as renewable resources such as corn starch or sugar cane.

Although PLA plastics are generally a better alternative than their close relatives (traditional petroleum-based plastics), they are not the most environmentally friendly choice.
