Bayart Innovations has launched 100% plant-based, compostable PLA pouches for amenities.
The company claims the material decomposes a lot quicker than standard plastic, with an average time of 360 days taken to biodegrade in home compost.
In addition, it takes 180 days for PLA to biodegrade under industrial composting conditions – that is a 65c temperature and 65% humidity.
The pouches are available in three sizes with three different thickness options of 80, 90, 100 microns.
Printings upon the pouch use ecological and biodegradable inks, and according to design requests can be printed with up to nine colours.
