FAQ

 

1. IS THIS REAL?

We get this reaction a lot, and we can assure you that 100BIO foam products are completely real, and completely compostable!

GO ON...

100BIO foam products are made from polylactic acid, or PLA, which is derived from plants such as corn. Not only does that make our products 100% compostable, but being derived from renewable resources also lowers the carbon footprint by needing less fossil energy. 

2. DOES THIS MEAN I CAN EAT IT?

While 100BIO products are approved for food packaging materials, they are still plastic objects. Your body would consider this a foreign substance if ingested. Thus, we do not recommend that you make a meal out of our packaging.

3. THIS STUFF SOUNDS EXPENSIVE!

Our products are cost-competitive to plastic (ps, pp, pe) and paper items (recyclable, compostable). 

4. AHA! WHAT ABOUT REGULAR FOAM PRODUCTS?

Ok, you got us. We cannot beat the cost of disposable polystyrene foam products. But we passionately believe the difference is a small price to pay for something so drastically more beneficial not only to the environment, but also to your health. 

5. ANY OTHER ADVANTAGES TO 100BIO PRODUCTS?

In comparison to non-foam plastic, 100BIO is much lighter. 100BIO is cold-resistant, heat-insulating, and shock absorbing. The end of life options are plentiful as well. Not only can our products turn to compost in a commercial facility,  they can also be safely incinerated, recycled, or even converted back into lactic acid!
