There are many false claims on biodegradable plastic products on the market. Most are biodegradable in a minimum of 70 years if not thousands of years for heavier plastics. Below are a few studies and articles to review to assure your awareness of current products on the market, what purpose they claim to serve, what is the true time to break down, and the method they have to use to achieve the goal of biodegrading or composting.
Our bags are completely biodegraded within 30 days and the straws are 9-12 months max. We don’t have to go an extra step to take them to a facility that has to keep a controlled environment at 140 degrees Celsius for 10 days to compost our bags like most of our competitors’ products. We have clinical proof of our products, time lapsed videos and how our bags and straws do exactly what we stat they do. They are truly the most durable biodegradable straw and bag products in the World. Literally ridding our planet of plastic waste.
There truly is no other product like ours on the market. The Original Hemp Straw and Pura Vida Hemp Co are moving to make our product the standard across the World. We have set a high bar for all to reach. Pura Vida!
Current bioplastics in our environment are still plastics that are harmful to our World. Such plastics as PLA is a polymer made up of small lactic acid units. It is more biodegradable than traditional plastic that takes thousands of years to degrade. However, PLA still takes years to biodegrade if it is not recycled back to the remanufacturing plant to then be manufactured again and back out to the consumer. This remanufacturing process creates pollutants and does not solve the World’s plastic waste crisis. Our straws are biodegradable within 9-12 months.
