What are bioplastics?

Bioplastic is plastic, but made from plant sources such as hemp oil, soy bean oil and corn starch. It looks like conventional (petroleum based) plastic but the big difference is that bioplastic is made from annually renewable resources while petroleum based plastic is made from non-renewable resources.

  • Most bioplastics are made from industrial grade corn. It does not compete as a food source and is sustainable & renewable. Corn regrows in a year.

  • Manufacturing bioplastics produces significantly less greenhouse gasses and uses less non renewable energy than conventional plastics.

  • Growing plants is better for the environment than drilling for oil.

  • They are non- toxic: no harmful toxins will leak into the food

  • Plant based plastics are compostable. Best case scenario it ends in a well maintained (or commercial) compost facility where it composts, and is used to feed the soil and grow more plants.

  • They are biodegradable. Bioplastic will biodegrade if it is exposed to bacteria, moisture and heat. Optimum conditions will enable this to happen in 4 to 6 months – like all your other green waste. It is unlikely that these optimum conditions will be found in landfills – so it will take longer to break down. This is why composting of all your green waste is the way to go.

Let us know if you have any further questions, we would love to help and make South Africa a greener place to live.
