Learn more about our products and how they are made.
Rogue Wave compostable beach toys are made from a plant-based polymer that is just as durable as conventional plastic (if not more so!). The big exception is that our material will break down after a long and useful life and not contribute to plastic pollution.
Toys made from recycled plastic are still made with conventional, petroleum-based plastic. Recycled plastic is a great way to use up plastic we’ve already produced, but plastic can only be recycled a few times—its properties change each time it’s recycled. Rogue Wave toys eliminate the need to recycle; our toys compost back to soil when you’re done with them.
Rogue Wave compostable beach toys will last as long as a conventional plastic beach toy.
Conventional plastic breaks down into smaller and smaller pieces but never disappears. We are finding microplastics in our food, water, even beer! Rogue Wave compostable beach toys are made from a plant-based material that will compost back into the soil, no microplastics or toxic residues.
Conventional plastic is made from oil. To make the plastic, oil is first extracted, then refined, then turned into a plastic. Extraction and refining is the second and third largest source of CO2 emissions in the U.S. CO2 is a green-house gas (GHG) that contributes to global warming. Our products use more plants and less petroleum, reducing our overall carbon footprint. And finally, once a product is made with conventional plastic, it will never disappear.
