The Only Home We've Ever Known
"There is perhaps no better demonstration of the folly of human conceits than this distant image of our tiny world. To me, it underscores our responsibility to deal more kindly with one another, and to preserve and cherish the pale blue dot, the only home we've ever known."
- Carl Sagan, Pale Blue Dot, 1994
In short, our plastic addiction comes at great cost - to all of us, and to the only home we've ever known.
Solving the plastic problem
Our material is made from a proprietary blend of compostable plastics derived from renewable feedstocks. This unique compostable material not only reduces the impact of traditional plastics on our environment, it also delivers the strength and heat resistance needed for functional parts.
And our favorite part? It’s compostable per ASTM D6400 standards. Selecting bio-based material obtained from renewable resources reduces the carbon footprint of the plastic itself. Some calculations show that this process can reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 50% to 80% compared to petroleum-based counterparts (Cok et al., 2014).
