What Are Compostable Spoons Made From?
Compostable spoons are made from natural Corn PLA Resin. Corn starch is heated and processed to form a resin, which is then poured into molds. A natural mineral filler, such as talc, is often added to provide strength and stiffness. These non toxic natural materials allow the cutlery to biodegrade in a compost pile. The composability is tested and certified by BPI®.
Almost every type of restaurant is expected to offer its customers spoons with which to eat, and there is no reason why those can’t be compostable utensils. Compostable spoons are ones that are made of natural materials, such as cornstarch. They are still a type of plastic, but because they are made from natural materials that are found in agriculture, they are known as bioplastics. These types of plastics decompose much more readily than traditional plastics that are derived from petroleum. Therefore, they are considered to be more eco-friendly than traditional plastics.
