Raw materials: Made from Plants


GREEN HOME plant-based Bioplastic look similar to petroleum based plastics, but are made from plants and are 100% compostable. The GREEN HOME product range includes items made from PLA and CPLA:

PLA

PLA is made from fermented corn starch. PLA products are transparent and heat sensitive to 40˚C. Our clear plastic products are made from PLA, for example, clear bags, deli containers, sandwich boxes and clear cold drink / smoothie cups and lids.

CPLA

CPLA is a combination of PLA, chalk and other biodegradable additives and can withstand temperatures of up to 95°C without deforming. It is opaque in colour. Our cutlery and coffee cup lids are made from CPLA and our coffee cups are lined with CPLA to prevent them from absorbing liquids.
