Are PLA Straws Compostable?
PLA Straws are compostable but they can not be broken down at home. They must be degraded under a controlled environment and therefore recycled in the proper way.
What’s more, these are not paper straws, they are actually made of biodegradable PLA Plastic.
PLA is made from renewable resources, such as sugarcane or corn starch. Other benefits are that it does not produce toxic fumes when breaking down.
