These bottles are made from PLA (Poly Lactic Acid) which is a compostable bioplastic. This type of plastic is made of the lactic acids found in corn starch. The lid is made from Bio-PE which is a 100% natural product made from sugarcane, but this material is not compostable. The transparant material of the bottle is not heat-resistant and can deform at temperatures higher than 50 degrees. Even though the bottles are made from PLA which is a compostable material, the bottles are quite thick which makes them less suitable for composting. The focus of the advantage of the use of PLA should be on the fact that they are 100% plant based and are therefore perfect to use for detox and fresh juices.
The PLA bottles can be sterilized under pressure, with alcohol, UV-ray and gamma rays. Our PLA bottles can withstand temperatures of up to 50 °C
