BioPak Bioplastic clear salad bowl lids are made from Ingeo PLA. Ingeo is made from plants and has a CO2 footprint 75% smaller than conventional plastics even if it ends up in landfill. Present your customers with a complete bio packaging solution by sealing your clear salad bowls with a Bioplastic lid.
The unique blend of physical properties of Ingeo biopolymer makes it well suited for rigid thermoformed food and beverage containers. Coupled with its unique environmental attributes, it is the only packaging material with significantly reduced greenhouse gas emissions to combine performance with environmental benefits.
BioPak plant-based salad bowls have the same look and feel as traditional sho bowls. However BioPak PLA salad bowls are made from Ingeo, a renewable plant-based plastic that is 100% derived from corn, not oil. PLA bioplastic requires 68% fewer fossil fuel resources to produce than traditional plastic.
- Are made from plants, not oil
- Are compostable in a commercial compost facility in as little as 45 days
- Have universal fit lids to reduce storage space requirements
What is Bioplastic?
Bioplastics are plastics derived from renewable sources, such as plant starch. Some, but not all, bioplastics are designed to biodegrade. The production and use of bioplastics is generally regarded as a more sustainable activity when compared with plastic production from petroleum, because it relies less on fossil fuel as a carbon source and also introduces fewer, net-new greenhouse emissions if it biodegrades. They significantly reduce hazardous waste caused by oil-derived plastics, which remain solid for hundreds of years.
BioPak Clear PLA containers provide the following attributes
- Flavor and odor barrier
- Anti-fogging characteristics
- Grease and oil resistance
The inherent stiffness of NatureWorks polymer also allows containers to be downguaged compared to polystyrene containers
