PLA production is a popular idea as it represents the fulfillment of the dream of cost-efficient, non-petroleum plastic production. The huge benefit of PLA as a bioplastic is its versatility and the fact that it naturally degrades when exposed to the environment. For example, a PLA bottle left in the ocean would typically degrade in six to 24 months. Compared to conventional plastics (which in the same environment can take several hundred to a thousand years to degrade) this is truly phenomenal. Additionaly, PLA is also extremely robust and resistent.

We are proud to announce that Lurdes Sampaio with the support of INOVAFIL developed a new fabric blend with Organic Cotton, PLA and Yak wool, and will be presenting it at Première Vision Paris show at our booth 5N41 – Hall 5.
