Miss America the New Face of Bioplastic Bottles

clipped from earth911.com

The Miss America Organization is partnering with Nature’s Bottles™ to promote the benefits of plastic bottles made from polylactic acid (PLA), which is generated using corn instead of petroleum.

Miss America will be the international “Go Green” spokesperson for Nature’s Bottles under the campaign slogan “Green is Gorgeous.”

The bottles are manufactured as a bioplastic, which creates a different resin than the polyethylene terephthalate (PETE) typically used to produce petroleum-based water bottles.

This means they cannot be recycled with other PETE bottles, but PLA bottles are biodegradable and can be industrially composted.
