PLA Bottles – Changing petroleum-based bottles into plant-based bottles.
We represent a manufacturer of PLA bottles – preforms. Compostable and recyclable bottles for water, milk and juices. We believe in leaving future generations a healthier planet where consumer product packaging has a lower environmental impact, generates less waste, and is recyclable, compostable, and sustainable.
In 2004, the USA company started with the first-ever PLA milk bottle. In 2008, they switched to solving the problem of one of the most pollutant products in the world—— the petroleum plastic water bottle. The PLA bottles for juice and PLA milk bottles are the next logical products that will reduce the single-use plastic waste issues. Some of our plant-based preforms are still in development. If you have questions and would like to know more about the work that is underway, send us an email for more information.

Our PLA Bottles are different

Petroleum-based, single-use plastics such as bottles, caps, straws, and food utensils clog landfills and contaminate our landscapes and watersheds. We are dedicated to reducing the usage of environmentally-unsound, single-use plastics. We favor non-GMO, plant-based PLA, and PHA resins for manufacturing unique compostable preforms which make earth-friendly bottles.

PLA bottles can be disposed of through industrial composting, recycled, incinerated, or digested with food waste which converts the mash to greywater. We are looking for “closed-loop” venues which allow ‘point-of-use” collection of empty bottles and caps, which then will undergo proper end-of-life processing.

To get our compostable bottles on the market we work together with bottlers to covert the preforms to bottles, and fill them with superior water, which will offer consumers the “best water in the best bottle in the world”.

PLA water bottles

We want to ensure that our bottles are always placed in venues where the correct end of life solution can occur. That is why we have chosen to only use our plant-based bottles in closed-loop locations. Our goal is to collect 90% of our bottles 90% of the time in order to process them properly.
We see that in normal retail it is difficult to create a good end of life for plant-based bottles. In normal retail, PET bottles are usually recycled separately or sorted out among the household waste. A PLA recycle flow in normal household waste has not yet been developed in most countries of the world, because the amount of PLA waste is still too small to be a factor to be dealt with. Within industrial composting, there is still a lot of uncertainty because there have been almost no bottles that have carried a compostable closure—until now. There is a lot of miscommunication about how to deal with plant-based packaging in the waste stream and some people think that every plant-based packaging simply composts in the wild. This is incorrect, there are different plant-based packaging and they do not compost the same. There are those that can compost in the wild and in water and some only compost in special circumstances such as in an industrial composting facilities. In the case of our compostable water bottles, they compost in an industrial composting facility and multiple other options as well.

Because of all these points above, we, therefore, choose not to sell our biodegradable bottles with water in normal retail, but only in closed-loop venues. If you are interested in switching with your company or brand to a more sustainable bottle for water, please contact us. We are happy to look at the possibilities of how we can use our water bottles in a closed loop to make your company come into the 21st century of environmental awareness.

Compostable milk bottles

At the start of the dairy production line in 2004, our CEO asked himself the question. “Why are organic and all- natural products actually packed in petroleum bottles and why is there no plant-based alternative?”
At that moment, the search for an alternative started. And later that same year, this alternative was found in PLA. A 100% plant-based bioplastic that does not contain petroleum or other harmful substances.

As far as we know, this may have been the first company in the world to develop plant-based PLA compostable milk bottles. All this more than 15 years ago. To this day, we still ask ourselves the same question———————- “Why are organic and natural products actually packed in petroleum bottles?” It never had any logic behind it—and it still has no logic.

By using PLA bottles when packaging milk, yogurts, drinking yogurts, etc., a 100% natural end product can be created. No toxic packaging for your natural product. In our opinion, there are countless advantages.
Our Compostable milk bottles are 100% compostable in an industrial composting facility. They are 100% safe to incinerate if they end up in the incinerator and if this is present, our bottles can also be recycled perfectly as mono-stream PLA at a special PLA recycler.
Various end of life solutions that you can use to set yourselves apart from the “crowd” as a company. Your CO2 footprint will be reduced with the use of our bottles and having 100% plant-based packaging adds value to your product line.

To make optimal use of the marketing we can also supply full bottle plant-based shrink sleeves. This makes the entire bottle usable from top to bottom as a means of communication to the customer.
If you are interested in the possibilities of our compostable milk bottles for your company and brand, please feel free to contact us.

Plant-based juice bottles

Natural Juices in natural packaging. For us, it is the ideal situation. A product/juice made from plants in a bottle made from plants. How natural do you want it?
We think that our PLA bottles for juice and compostable caps are a good alternative for juice producers to move away from petroleum plastic as a packaging material. We are finalizing the development of the 33mm cap and the 38mm preform. When it is in production, we can assist your company with compostable juice bottles. We are getting requests for different size bottles several times a week and we are working hard with our R&D team to put the plant-based juice bottle on the market.
If you are interested in the possibilities of transferring your production to plant-based bottles, please contact us and we will be happy to talk with you about what we can do in the near future. By using compostable juice bottles in the packaging of fruit and vegetable juices. a 100% natural end product can be created. No toxic packaging for your natural product.
Our bottles are 100% compostable in an industrial composting facility. They are 100% safe to incinerate if they end up in the incinerator. Our bottles can also be recycled perfectly as mono-stream PLA at a special PLA recycler.
To make optimal use of the marketing we can also supply full bottle shrink sleeves, of course also 100% plant-based. This makes the entire bottle usable from top to bottom as a means of communication to the customer.

All in all, it was time we started developing a 100% plant-based compostable cap. It took almost five years of trial and error to develop a compostable closure, but our biodegradable water bottles, cap, and label are finally 100% plant-based. A product that can be processed in recycling, compost installations, boilers, and/or possibly digested in a digester that has been in continued research and development for almost a decade.
At the moment, our PCO1810 preform and closure is ready for mass production. This 23.5-gram preform with a 28mm neck has a light blue color and is suitable for 500 ml. bottles.
