HEMP PLA is a 100% plant-based commercially compostable Polylactic Acid resin blended with 25% hemp content.

HEMP PLA is designed to be a drop-in replacement for virgin PLA injection molding applications, but may be used for other forming methods as developed by individual users.

Hemp-based plastics have the potential to replace conventional plastics without significant additional capital or operating expense and are currently available at affordable volumes in pelletized form (natural brown color) from The Hemp Plastic Company.

Potential applications include sustainable packaging and films, medical components, bottles, and more product areas where PLA is commonly used.
