The optimal solution is to direct these materials to an industrial composting facility where things like controlled temperature and the presence of microorganisms accelerate decomposition. Unfortunately finding such a facility in your locale may prove to be difficult. Industry has yet to develop the infrastructure needed to effectively sort and properly process PLA or “bioplastics” which currently results in the majority of PLA being landfilled. When this happens, it can take a considerable amount of time for these materials to break down entirely. For these reasons we have made the decision to not include many PLA-based products. PLA-based products that are included in our offerings were selected based on their size and estimated time for disintegration.

Felt good to switch to these. Felt bad everytime I took garbage out!
