PLA Sleeves

You see and hear it everywhere: horticulture also needs to become more sustainable. That is why Koen Pack has added some 100 per cent biodegradable sleeves to our standard range. These sleeves are made of a durable and naturally degradable material. They are printed with water-based ink which it is better for the environment.

What are the advantages of PLA (Poly Lactic Acid)?
This material is not made of fossile fuels, in contrast to traditional plastics. These sleeves are made from renewable sources like sugar cane and corn. Because these sleeves are biodegradable, they can be composted after use. The consumer can simply throw the sleeves into the green waste bin together with the leaves. It is 100 per cent industrially compostable.
