As part of our #EarthDay eco conscious conference series – we are looking at the top 10- earth friendly materials for promotional items. . To make the list items must be made with earth friendly, sustainable, recycled, recyclable or biodegradeable materials. 

Putting on an eco-friendly event is much easier than you think, and with so many choices available, delegates can still get the same swag buzz they know and love! Eco Friendly does not have to cost the earth so why not make 2021 the year we make can make a difference.

corn starch : the natural choice

Corn Starch plastic is made from corn starch polymers.

A wonderful thing called PLA (polyctic acid) is made mixing fermented plant starch and alkenes

Will PLA and corn starch plastic replace oil based plastic and become the biodegradable replacement of choice? 

Let’s hope so! With corn being the cheapest source of sugar and available everywhere – corn starch plastic is cost effective, and endlessly renewable.
