Product F.A.Q.’s

What is Bagasse?

Bagasse is made from sugarcane, which is a rapidly renewable plant. Bagasse is a by-product in sugar production that would traditionally end up being burned, or put in a landfill. Because of its ability to be used in the production of 100% compostable items, this sugarcane by-product has earned a second life.. Bagasse takes about 160 days to completely compost in a commercial composting facility.

What is PLA?

Polylactic acid — commonly known as PLA — is a USA made, 100% compostable polymer that is made from renewable and sustainable corn starch. PLA can be used as an alternative to petroleum plastic-based products, and new PLA products are becoming available everyday. Products made using PLA usually compost in about 160 days in a commercial based composting facility.
