In September 2015, the United Nations General Assembly adopted 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) with the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. Over the next decade, the SDGs allow for an action plan to free humanity from poverty and put the planet back on the road to sustainability.
PLA as a Perfect Solution to the UN’s SDG Proclamation
Because PLA is processed from the starch of plants such as corn, sugar cane and sugar beet, it is sustainable and environmentally friendly. PLA is also fully biodegradable, meaning that it could be completely decomposed by bacteria and microbes in landfills.Moreover, the PLA fiber manufacturing process uses lower non-reusable energy and emits lower greenhouse gases than similar products sourced from petrochemical-based inputs.
