Product Description

E-Staples are a revolutionary biodegradable turf and ground anchor staple comprised of a natural plastic that originates from materials in the United States. The E-Staple composition is Polyhydroxyalkanoate (PHA) plastic that is derived from plant sugars and oils. One benefit of using “Natural plastics” is that it eliminates the use of petroleum-based plastics which in turn helps to reduce our dependency on oil. The E-Staples PHA is actually made by the bacterium “ralstonia eutropha” which converts sugars directly into plastic in the case of PHA.

Works great with DeWitt Garden Weed Barrier®!
