EcoAid Bioplastic Straws are made from PLA which stands for “Polylactide” and is produced by Nature works, LLC in America. It is derived from corn sugar or dextrose that comes from plants with starch. The dextrose is fermented and distilled into lactic acid. The lactic acid is then transformed into plastic-like resin called PLA, which can be used in conventional plastic machines.
