Unlike traditional plastic packaging, compostable material, such as PLA, it is made from organic materials that break down in a reasonable period of time and leave no toxic. PLA is a compostable bioplastic derived from plant sugars. PLA stands for polylactic acid. It can be made from any sugar, such as corn starch, cassava, sugar cane, or sugar beet. Compostable packaging is a type of packaging material that follows the principles of the circular economy.
