It was on a short stay at the resort that one of the founders of Eco for Life was offered water in a what they quickly realised was a remarkable bottle. It wasn’t the design of the bottle that struck them. They discovered something far more important: it was made from Polylactic Acid (or PLA for short).
Digging deeper, they learned that the bottle produces 60% less greenhouse gases and uses 50% less fossil fuels in its production, which is good for the environment. But even more fundamental is that 100% of the bottle’s material comes from plants, like corn, cassava and sugar beet. So, not only is it fully biodegradable, but it is also kind to its contents. Eco for life bottles won’t leach any pollutants into the contents because they do not contain any chemicals. Wonderful for us, and wonderful for the world.
