Polylactic Acid coated Cups

Here is a way to solve an environmental diaster...
Make companies produce PLA Coated cups and stop making PE Coated cups
PolyLactic Acid starts as a corn kernel that is milled and separated into starch ,sugar and dextrose.
The dextrose is then fermented into lactic acid and converted to the lactide polymer, polylactic acid (a bio-plastic that requires 65% less energy to be produced and generates 68% fewer greenhouse gases than conventional plastics).
