Glossary

Bagasse

The remaining product mass pulp after renewable and sustainable raw materials (Bamboo, Reed Rice, Hemp and Sugarcane) are processed from the fields.

Biodegradable

Solid materials that will degrade as a result of natural bacteria activity and will disappear into the environement over a period of time.

Compostable

Solid biodegradable materials that decay into a nutrient-rich, natural substance in a commercial composting facility utilising controlled conditions including micro-organisms, humidity and temperature.

CPLA

CPLA (Crystallised Polylactic Acid) is a nature-based NatureWorks® plastic made from corn, an annually renewable resource. A modified form of PLA, strengthened for hot food and liquids.

GoodPoly

A plastic material that contains a small amount of organic additive, causing the material to biodegrade within 2-7 years in landfill. Importantly, the material maintains its potential to be recycled.

Hazard analysis and critical control point

HDPE

High-density polyethylene. Featuring a high strength-to-density ratio and typically used to produce rigid forms of packaging. A recyclable material.

LDPE

Low-density polyethylene is lightweight material offering flexibility and durability. LDPE is recyclable.

PET

Polyethylene Terephthalate, commonly referred to as PET or PETE. A lightweight, strong and flexible material that is 100% recyclable.

PLA

Poly Lactic Acid is a biodegradable plant-based biopolymer derived from 100% renewable resources, such as corn starch.

PSM

Plastized Starch Material consisting of up to 20% petroleum based resin such as Polypropylene.

Recyclable

Material needs to be separated, collected, processed and then manufactured into a new product.

Recycled

Items produced from recovered materials such as boxes and newspapers, therefore protecting natural resources.

Sustainable

Raw materials, such as corn and sugarcane, that can be transplanted, harvested, and replanted within a year versus trees that require years to grow.
