ecoSweetie™ sells Cornflower brand tableware, containing PLA made in the USA. The field corn used to make the PLA is “already grown for many industrial & functional end-uses. In North America, corn has been used first because it is the most economically feasible source of plant starches.” All Cornflower products biodegrade naturally in landfills and are compostable in industrial composting facilities.
Cornflower tableware is designed as a healthy alternative to petroleum-based products for you and your children. The plates, bowls, and utensils are extremely durable, with a lifespan of approximately 5 years. They are non-toxic, BPA-free, PVC-free, phthalate-free, and do not contain plasticizers or heavy metals. The tableware is top-shelf dishwasher-safe. Not recommended for microwaves or for use with temperatures over 100°C or 212°F.
