Plastic Suppliers Inc., of Columbus, OH, USA, is the 2006 recipient of the Environmental Excellence Award from the Flexographic Technical Association (FTA). The award is given for the category of innovative technology for Plastic Suppliers’ EarthFirst PLA product, a corn-based film.

The award will be presented at the FTA’s annual forum, to be held April 30 to May 3 in Louisville, KY, USA.

EarthFirst PLA (which stands for polylactic acid) is compostable and does not rely on oil as a resource. The film, introduced a little more than a year ago, is used in the packaging, label and envelope markets. More information is available at
