Why do everyone choose PLA material disposable tableware?

PLA (polylactic acid) disposable tableware is very popular for the following reasons:

1.Degradability: PLA is a biodegradable plastic made from plant-derived materials such as corn starch or sucrose. Compared with traditional petroleum-based plastics, PLA can naturally degrade under certain conditions, reducing its negative impact on the environment. This has important implications for reducing plastic pollution and waste accumulation.

2.Renewable resources: The raw materials for PLA usually come from renewable resources, such as corn. This means that the process of producing PLA is relatively environmentally friendly and reduces reliance on non-renewable resources.

3.Low carbon footprint: The carbon footprint of producing PLA is generally lower than traditional plastics because it does not rely on fossil fuels and the plants absorb carbon dioxide as they grow.

4.Health and safety: PLA is generally considered food safe and does not release harmful chemicals, making it suitable for food contact.

5.Widely used: PLA material can be used to make various disposable tableware, such as lunch boxes, cutlery, straws, etc., so it is widely used in the catering industry.

6.Market Demand: As concerns about environmental protection and sustainability continue to increase, consumer demand for the use of environmentally friendly products is also rising, which drives the market demand for PLA disposable tableware.

7.Regulatory support: Some regions and countries have introduced regulations to restrict the use of traditional plastic tableware and encourage the use of more environmentally friendly alternatives, including PLA.
