Our products are made from PLA plastic, a strong, versatile plastic that is made from organic materials such as sugarcane or corn.
PLA stands for Polylactic Acid which is derived from renewable resources such as sugarcane or corn starch. PLA is biodegradable in industrial composting facilities where it is estimated to degrade in 6-12 months.
The poles will not degrade while you use them. While the poles are indeed biodegradable, PLA plastic requires an industrial composting facility in order to break down properly.
