This is a great question. The blend of organic bio-resins is proprietary but rest assured our PLA plastic is made from plant-based materials and won’t take 400-1000 years to decompose such as conventional plastic would if placed in a landfill (Boonee et al. 2016). 

Tayst compostable pods completely break down after use with proper disposal and give back fertile nutrients to the soil as it naturally decomposes. All the parts of the pod are made from the Earth – the lid is created from biological materials and water-based compostable ink, the ring is made from compressed corn starch combined with bio-resins, and even the unique mesh filter is designed with renewable bio-resins. No plastic, no harmful materials, no fuss. Only great coffee that’s great for the ecosystem.
