A bioplastic is a substance made from organic biomass sources, unlike conventional plastics, which are made from fossil resources (oil and gas), bioplastics are made from a number of renewable resources such as plant oils, cellulose, starches, sugars, carbohydrates, bacteria and algae. The production of almost all bioplastics results in less CO2 than that of conventional plastics.
This bioplastic we use is also compostable meaning it can be diverted from landfill at the end of its life, returning nutrients back into the soil.
