Traditional plastic is an environmentally-destructive. At Pura Vida Bioplastics we provide an alternative, ecologically-efficient product. The plastic in a conventional materials are derived from oil or natural gas, i.e. through the use of a non-renewable resource. The materials that make up a Pura Vida Bioplastics products are from extrusion-grade bioplastic and a compound cereal flours and biodegradable polyesters.
Plastics glut landfills for centuries before they degrade, and their production does not support efficient and effective recycling of resources. Additionally, most plastics contain color additives and chemicals that further pollute the environment.
Our products are made from biobased material: the ingredients that go into making one of our plastics are naturally sourced, and can be produced again and again (through crop growing) without harming the environment.
Finally, biobased materials return to nature, sustaining the renewable material life cycle, rather than polluting the environment with plastic byproducts.
