Clear PLA Cups - 400 ml (50 pk)

  and then
The cups are made from Poly Lactic Acid (PLA), which is made from a corn base. PLA will be able to be composted in the future, once high temperature compost facilites are established in New Zealand.

The Recycling Operators of New Zealand association appreciates that "PLA is made from annually renewable materials that themselves can be produced with lower environmental impacts than synthesised oil."

For now, the main advantage of PLA is that is it made from renewable resources (corn) and it not petroleum based like plastic cups.
