The Benefits of Using 100% Compostable Cutlery

Emerald’s Compostable Cutlery is made with PLA (polylactic acid), a
plastic substitute made from fermented plant starch. PLA is an
environmentally-friendly solution to traditional petroleum-based plastics.

The average time for traditional plastic to completely breakdown is
between 450 and 1,000 years! Emerald’s Compostable Cutlery will help to
reduce the amount of plastic pollution, while offering a healthier
alternative.
