Introducing PLA Packaging, a sustainable solution

PLA stands for Polylactic Acid, and is commonly known as corn plastic. It’s produced under controlled conditions using renewable resources such as corn starch or sugarcane.

PLA packaging products can be fully degraded into carbon dioxide and water after composting without environmental pollution. Want to see how PLA compares to other thermal insulates? Read our thermal insulates comparison blog here.

Swiftpak offers a variety of PLA packaging products for the food and pharmaceutical industries who require safe, temperature-controlled shipping.

Reduced carbon emissions with PLA

Reducing your carbon footprint is easy with PLA packaging. The manufacturing process of PLA emits fewer greenhouse gases than other frequently used plastics. In fact, with carbon dioxide consumed during the growth of corn, net greenhouse emissions of PLA can even be considered negative. 

PLA packaging products from Swiftpak include:

  • Insulation felt with film
  • Insulation zip pouch
  • Insulation pouch with flap
  • Zipper
  • Zipper bag
