Composition:

Bio-based composite made of LEFTOVER AGAVE FIBERS and does not use food in its production

 

Biodegradation Process:

Will abiotically degrade in the presence of oxygen. It is also 100% recyclable.

 

Biodegradation Time in NATURE:

12 to 48 months

Composition:

Polylactic acid made of corn starch or sugar cane and depends on large fields of crops which can be used as food supply for the world’s growing population

Biodegradation Process:

PLA can only break down when all oxygen is removed and constantly heated above 140°F or 60°C for at least 10 days. Does not break down into natural elements. It needs to be sent in a commercial composing facility for processing. Cannot be recycled as it contaminates the process

Biodegradation Time in NATURE:

800 to 1400 years. Entering oceans, PLAs become “regular” plastic, consumed by marine wildlife and fish, endangering or killing them.
