This means that biodegradable products, such as those made from PLA, win hands down in comparison with petroleum-based plastics.
Does PLA also exist in other colors?
The bioplastic USB stick is only available in the color shown.
Is the memory different from the standard USB stick?
This USB flash drive comes with high quality branded memory as standard. Alternatively, high-speed memory can be installed, which ensures faster data transfer and is designed for higher demands.
Is PLA sustainable?
The benefits of sustainable promotional products cannot be underestimated in times of climate change and high environmental impact. Ecologically sound promotional products help to conserve valuable resources, avoid unnecessary waste and appeal to people’s environmental awareness. Sustainable promotional gifts stand for high standards of quality and environmental protection.
Are there also disadvantages to PLA?
As with many other things in life, the saying also applies to PLA: All that glitters is not gold. While PLA is biodegradable, it can only be decomposed in industrial composting facilities. Home compost is out of the question here, as the climatic conditions are not present to decompose PLA products.
