Plastek Cards Inc. offers biodegradable cards made of PLA.
PLA corn cards are a new family of Plastek Card’s eco-friendly biodegradable plastic cards. They are manufactured from corn oil or polylactic acid from corn. Corn cards look and feel just like the PVC cards, which promises the same durability as PVC. The environmental advantages of PLA corn cards are significant. They require 35% less energy and produce 25% less green house gases. PLA corn cards are biodegradable and produce no toxins when destroyed during incineration. And, the durability, life span and printing of the PLA corn cards are all very similar to PVC plastic cards.
