The company that we represent in the USA began making PLA milk bottles in 2004. . They may have been the first company in the world to produce a PLA bottle for dairy products.
We can still provide the white preforms as well as the transparent ones. Our compostable full bottle shrink sleeves can be added for an amazing marketing tool. This way the full compostable milk bottles becomes an advertisement.
At the start of the dairy production line in 2004, our CEO asked himself the question. “Why are organic and all- natural products actually packed in petroleum bottles and why is there no plant-based alternative?”
At that moment, the search for an alternative started. And later that same year, this alternative was found in PLA. A 100% plant-based bioplastic that does not contain petroleum or other harmful substances.
As far as we know, this may have been the first company in the world to develop plant-based PLA compostable milk bottles. All this more than 15 years ago. To this day, we still ask ourselves the same question———————- “Why are organic and natural products actually packed in petroleum bottles?” It never had any logic behind it—and it still has no logic.
By using PLA bottles when packaging milk, yogurts, drinking yogurts, etc., a 100% natural end product can be created. No toxic packaging for your natural product. In our opinion, there are countless advantages.
Our Compostable milk bottles are 100% compostable in an industrial composting facility. They are 100% safe to incinerate if they end up in the incinerator and if this is present, our bottles can also be recycled perfectly as mono-stream PLA at a special PLA recycler.
Various end of life solutions that you can use to set yourselves apart from the “crowd” as a company. Your CO2 footprint will be reduced with the use of our bottles and having 100% plant-based packaging adds value to your product line.
To make optimal use of the marketing we can also supply full bottle plant-based shrink sleeves. This makes the entire bottle usable from top to bottom as a means of communication to the customer.

In 2004 we started with the first in the world PLA milk bottle. In 2008 we switched to solving the problem of one of the most pollution single-use fossil plastic products of the world. “The plastic water bottle.” The PLA juice bottle is the newest member of the family. Our R&D team is working on the next solution. PHA home compostable bottles.
With our head-office in the USA, an office in the Netherlands and several representatives all over the world. We have a wide network of specialists that can support your plant-based packaging questions.
We distribute our plant-based bottles of water only within “closed-loop” venues, whereby used containers are collected on-site and undergo proper end-of-life processing. Our goal is to get 90% of the PLA bottles back after use, 90% of the time. Collecting the bottles and send them to the right end of life option. (For our compostable milk bottles a closed-loop is not needed.)
We believe in leaving future generations a healthier planet where consumer product packaging has a softer environmental impact, generates less waste, and is both compostable and sustainable.
Consumer education regarding composting and the use of other more environmentally-friendly waste management actions accompany the distribution of Single Use Solutions’ marketed products.
