Please note Vegware are not responsible or party to any current or future plastic bans in Australia. Any questions or concerns regarding the plastic bans, and their impact on available choices for your business, should be directed to the NRA (National Retail Association).

PLA (Polylactic Acid) is a compostable bioplastic made from plants - primarily corn - not fossil fuels.

Manufacturing bioplastics such as PLA produces significantly less carbon than conventional plastics such as PS or PET, and all Vegware PLA products are commercially compostable where accepted. 

More info...

PLA straws have a general shelf life of 12 months if stored correctly*. Due to the nature of compostable bioplastics, performance can be affected by age. While the product will not biodegrade in storage, it could become brittle and discoloured.

*All PLA products should be stored away from heat & sunlight, as the material can warp and melt at temperatures as low as 40°C.
