What are PLA and CPLA?

Plant sugars are used to create PLA or polylactic acid, which is a compostable bioplastic derived from plant sugars, such as corn starch, cassava, sugar cane or sugar beet. PLA is made with the glucose extracted from the starch, which is fermented to produce lactic acid. This acid will be transformed into a polymer useful for a huge range of applications, including Eco-Friendly Canteen & Welfare products.

CPLA stands for crystallised CPLA. This material is ideal for higher heat use as PLA has a low melt point. CPLA has more heat resistance, which is why our range of compostable cutlery is made of this material.

How to dispose of plastic cutlery?

Canteen and workplace welfare officers can encourage employees to recycle. Recycling bins can be placed so that compostable cutlery can be recycled instead of going to landfill. This also prevents cutlery from becoming contaminated, which could hinder the recycling process.

This measure not only will save your company money, but also protect the environment as approximately 75% of waste plastic is sent to landfill. We can help you recycle plastic waste if your products are coming to the end of their life and you are having trouble disposing of them.

Tiger Supplies has a dedicated plastic recycling facility that recycles over 10 million kilos of plastic waste every year, which we transform into highly reusable products for the construction sector. 

To support the construction sector, we have also implemented a plastic waste collection scheme from construction sites throughout the UK. We aim to support responsible construction sites by collecting their disposed plastic waste. 

If you are looking for other cutlery options, we also offer stainless steel cutlery sets, which are ideal for site canteens and offices. This option of cutlery includes knives, forks, spoons, etc. 

We can help you be more sustainable. That is why, at Tiger Supplies, we provide eco-friendly products. Check out our vast range of Eco-Friendly Canteen & Welfare products, which include Compostable Tableware and Compostable Cups. We also have Eco-Friendly PPE, Workwear and Eco-friendly Cleaning Products.
