From the Earth To the Earth
Pela™ is a biodegradable consumer product line made with Flaxstic™.
Flaxstic™ is a plastic alternative created by Open Mind Developments (OMD). Flaxstic™ is a proprietary biocomposite material comprised of bio resin and flax straw components. The bio resin is certified to compostable standards ASTM D6400 and EN 13432. When consistently exposed to a composting environment Flaxstic™ fully breaks down into organic compounds in a matter of months.
The Pela Name
The word ‘pela’ loosely translates to ‘peel’ in Spanish. The idea is that the apple peel protects the apple fruit, then it naturally biodegrades and becomes compost at the end of its life, like how the Pela Case protects the Apple iPhone and biodegrades at the end of its life.
