Almost all plastic is derived from materials (like ethylene and propylene) made from fossil fuels harmful to our environment. The process of extracting and transporting those fuels(fracking), then manufacturing plastic creates billions of tonnes of toxic greenhouse gases. 4% of the world's annual petroleum production is diverted to making plastic, and another 4% gets burned in the refining process. We already know that fracking is bad for the planet -- it pollutes water, soil and air with toxins, it creates underground cavities that collapse into sinkholes, and it raises pressure in underground rock formations, destabilizing them and leading to earthquakes, even in places where earthquakes are uncommon. Adding insult to injury, one of the main products of fracking is ... plastics. Petroleum based plastics are an enormous contributor to climate change. We at Plant Plastics aim to reverse climate change back to normal.
PlantPlastikz contain absolutely NO petroleum whatsoever. Our products are made 100% from annually renewable resources so fracking isn't necessary, eliminating those toxic gasses, resulting in cleaner and clearer skies, and reversing Climate Change-- protecting a world that needs it and championing a generation of consumers that demand it.
In our oceans, which provide the largest natural carbon sink for greenhouse gases, plastic leaves a deadly legacy. There are an estimated 270,000 tons of plastic floating through the world’s seas where it threatens 700 marine species with its presence . Further, there is growing evidence that plastics play a role in rising rates of species extinctions. Traditional plastic directly chokes and smothers a host of marine animals and habitats and can take hundreds of years to break down. Our products are certified compostable which means they’re biodegradable and won’t last a year, and a fraction of a year in an industrial composting facility. Disposable products used for mere moments shouldn't last forever... ours don't!
As it does, sunlight and heat cause the plastic to release powerful greenhouse gases, leading to an alarming feedback loop. As our climate changes, the planet gets hotter, the plastic breaks down into more methane and ethylene, increasing the rate of climate change, and so perpetuating the cycle. Our products are made 100% from plants which absorb the toxic greenhouse gasses in the air rather than emit them.
The Circular Economy redefines growth models by integrating environmental and economic aspects. It proposes a continuous development cycle in which the value of products, materials and resources remains the same for as long as possible and includes maximum reductions in waste generation.The aim is to become a competitive, sustainable economy, with a reduced carbon footprint and efficiency in terms of resources.As a strong believer in The Circular Economy and taking advantage of our renewable resources, We make our products from harvested corn starch broken down into Polylactic Acid.
At PlantPlastikz we aim to give you the opportunity to apply these Circular Economic principles, in turn making you more; eco-efficient, and environmentally conscious while reducing your Carbon Footprint. To achieve this, we offer a variety of 100% Biodegradable, Bio-based, Compostable alternatives for your everyday needs.
