What is PLA? PLA, or polylactic acid, is a natural plant-based bioplastic derived from renewable resources like cornstarch and sugar cane that is both biodegradable and compostable and is an eco-friendly alternative to petroleum-based plastics.
What is BPA Free? Emerald paper plates are also BPA free. Bisphenol A (BPA) is a potentially toxic hormone-mimicking chemical used in some plastics and plastic sealants. BPA has also been found in the ink on newspapers and receipts, leading to the presence of BPA in recycled paper products. Emerald Brand Tree-Free products are naturally BPA free!
