WHY CHOOSE PLA DINNERWARE FOR KIDS?
PLA dinnerware for kids is made from plant-based materials such as cornstarch, sugarcane, or potato starch. It is biodegradable and compostable. Moreover, PLA dishes are a popular alternative to traditional plastic dinnerware, which can contain harmful chemicals such as bisphenol A (BPA) and phthalates.
Here are some advantages of using PLA dinnerware for kids:
1 Eco-Friendly: PLA dishes and cutlery are made from renewable resources, making it an eco-friendly alternative to traditional plastic dinnerware. It's also biodegradable and compostable, which means it won't contribute to the accumulation of plastic waste in landfill. PLA dinnerware is an excellent option for eco-conscious consumers who want to reduce their environmental impact.
2 Non-Toxic: PLA dinnerware is free from harmful chemicals like BPA, phthalates, and other toxins commonly found in plastic dinnerware. This makes it a safe option for kids who tend to put everything in their mouths. PLA dishes are safe for use with food as they do not contain harmful chemicals or toxins that can leach into food. Moreover, PLA dinnerware meets the FDA requirements for food contact and has been certified by numerous independent organizations, including the Biodegradable Products Institute (BPI) and the European Union’s EN 13432 standard.
3 Lightweight and Durable: PLA dinnerware is lightweight and durable, making it easy for kids to handle and less likely to break into pieces compared to glass or ceramic dinnerware. It's also dishwasher safe, making it easy to clean. Our PLA plates, bowls and cups are ideal for use in both indoor and outdoor settings.
4 Heat Resistant: PLA dinnerware can withstand temperatures up to 212°F (100°C), making it suitable for most food and beverage applications and microwave-safe.
5 Colorful and Fun: PLA can be molded into a wide variety of shapes and sizes. Hence, our PLA bowls, plates, cups , cutlery, and divided plates come in a variety of colors and designs, making mealtime more fun and enjoyable for kids
6 Cost-effective: PLA is a cost-effective material compared to other biodegradable materials such as polycarbonate or polylactic acid blends. This makes it an excellent option to get a sustainable dinnerware at a reasonable cost.
However, there are some considerations to keep in mind when using PLA dinnerware. First, it is not heat-resistant and can't be exposed to high temperatures. This means that it should be kept away from direct sunlight or heat source. Though suitable for microwaves, PLA dinnerware can be used up to 100° C only.
Additionally, PLA dinnerware may not be suitable for all types of food, particularly acidic food. When PLA is exposed to acidic substances, it can break down and release chemicals into the food.
So, as with any food-contact product, it is important to use caution and common sense when using and caring for PLA dinnerware to ensure that it remains safe for use.
Overall, PLA dinnerware is a great option for parents who are looking for an eco-friendly, non-toxic, and safe alternative to traditional plastic dinnerware for their kids. As consumer demand for sustainable products continues to grow, PLA dinnerware is likely to become an increasingly popular option for both indoor and outdoor dining.
