Wine brand Trinity Oaks has begun bottling its wines with new plant-based biopolymer capsules In honor of Earth Day (April 22) and Arbor Day (April 26). The capsules are made using EarthFirst® PLA (polylactic acid) film manufactured using renewable technology. The EarthFirst PLA film material used in the capsule is certified compostable, and the aluminum top disk on the bottle is recyclable. Flexographic printing is being done on PLA Capsule. The technology was developed in partnership with Plastic Suppliers, Inc. and capsule producer Maverick Enterprises. Less energy is used to make these capsules and they are made in a greenhouse-neutral facility that uses wind, solar power and other energy offsets. The aluminum top disk on the bottle is recyclable, while the EarthFirst PLA film material used for the capsule is certified compostable.
