PLA (Poly Lactic Acid) is one of the most environmentally friendly bioplastics available today. It has multiple end-of-life options (i.e., 100% recyclable and biodegradable). PLA is a highly efficient plastic. To make 1 kg of PLA requires just 1.6kg of sugar. Other types of bioplastics can require significantly more natural resources to produce the same amount of end-product. Plastics products may take upto thousand years to degrade while PLA products biodegrade within 3-6 months in a composting system.
