Using 100% Plant made Bottles enables companies to improve their sustainable practices and step away from using plastics which are made with finite resources such as fossil fuels and reduce their carbon footprint.
No plastic taste, no potential harmful effects. They look great and are great for companies to be seen using, great for the Environment and great for you.
DIN V 54900-1 (Germany)
Our bottles are made from Polylactic Acid (PLA), an annually renewable plant source, rather than scarce fossil fuels. The bottles produce 60% less greenhouse gases and use 50% less fossil fuels in their production. PLA is derived 100% from plants such as corn, cassava and sugar beet. As the plants grow they consume harmful greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide (CO2). Only 0.04% of the annual global corn crop is used to make all PLA plastics from our supplier, so there is little to no impact on food supply or prices. PLA bottles will bio-degrade in conditions >60° C, and will burn without releasing pollutants into the atmosphere. Plant made bottles produce an acceptable compost material under industrial composting conditions, according to standard BS EN 13432, having shown that they biodegrade under industrial composting conditions, fully compostable without releasing pollutants into the atmosphere.
With the strategy of Europe and the world committed to Zero Landfill, 100% Plant made Bottles are the future.
