The Studierendenwerk Karlsruhe is relying on the use of recyclable materials as part of its sustainability activities. We only use plastics in our cafeterias where it is absolutely necessary for hygienic or other reasons. All other packaging, straws and our disposable tableware including the cutlery are made exclusively from so-called renewable raw materials. Specifically, we rely on the material polylactic acid (PLA), which is derived from lactic acid and is biodegradable. We also try to use recycled paper packaging wherever possible.
