Biodegradable PLA Plates
According to statistics, more than 8 million tonnes of plastic waste, enters the oceans globally every year, causing serious impacts on marine life, fisheries and tourism and causing economic losses of US$8 billion. When plastic waste enters the ocean, it kills millions of seabirds, 100,000 marine mammals and untold numbers of fish every year. If we ignore the situation, by 2050 the weight of plastic litter in the oceans will exceed the total weight of fish.
The danger of plastic litter is not only to marine life, but also to human health. Through the accumulation of small plastic molecules in the food chain, they will eventually enter the human body and endanger our health.
Plastic has a major impact on our lives and there is an urgent need to reduce the use of plastic products, however, we have become so dependent on plastic dinnerware in our daily lives that it is impossible to stop using them altogether, so we needed to find a product that could replace them completely.
The design department at Lekoch has been researching natural materials and experimenting with new ones to come up with biodegradable plates-- PLA plates、 PLA salad forks and Spoon. Our Plant-Based PLA biodegradable plate set includes dinner plates, salad plates, cups and salad forks, and spoons. PLA biodegradable plates, as the most advanced environmentally friendly composable tableware, is the best substitute for melamine plates.
The Cycle of PLA Plates in Nature
The production of PLA plates has four main stages:
Plant material production and transport to sugar mill;
Natural plant conversion into raw sugar;
Fermentation of raw sugar from sugarcane to produce lactic acid by Corbion and
Conversion of lactic acid into lactide and PLA by Total Corbion PLA.
Biodegradble PLA Coffee Cups

Biodegradable PLA Salad Fork and Spoon
⭐Alternatives to plastic dinnerware
Lekoch biodegradable PLA Plates set material is made by polymerizing lactic acid extracted from plants. The product is made of safe and environmentally friendly raw materials. In certain conditions, PLA dinnerware can be broken down into carbon dioxide and water.PLA biodegradable plates are the best alternative to plastic dinnerware.
The lightweight plant-based biodegradable plate set is a perfect choice for picnics, BBQs, parties， and outdoor & indoor parties. Being available for all kinds of temperature foods, hot and cold foods."
Recycling and degradation of PLA Plates
Polylactic acid (PLA) is the most widely used commercial bio-based plastic with properties similar to polystyrene, polypropylene or polyethylene. PLA offers a wide range of end-of-life options: In addition to mechanical or chemical recycling and (renewable) energy recovery, it also provides a variety of end-of-life options related to its inherent biodegradability; PLA can be used for industrial composting or anaerobic digestion. In many applications where recycling is challenging, options such as composting or anaerobic digestion can help divert organic waste from landfills or incineration. These end-of-life options promote recycling through the use of compost in agricultural soils through the recycling of carbon and mineral nutrients.
Therefore, under certain conditions, we bury PLA biodegradable plates in the soil. After a period of time, the biodegradable PLA tableware will eventually decompose into carbon dioxide and water and disappear into the soil.
