PLA (polylactic acid) plastic is made from corn kernels and then processed into lactic acid. Plastic is degraded by biological processes during composting to yield CO2, water, inorganic compounds, and biomass at a rate consistent with other known compostable materials.

Cellophane Package Protection

Each box is shrink-wrapped for added protection and to prevent messy situations.
