From a young age, we are taught the 3 R’s, Reduce, Reuse and Recycle, in order to do our part for the environment in which we live in. From reducing the amount of waste we produce, to reusing plastic bags we receive from a trip to the super-market and to throw our plastic drink bottles and cans into the proper bins labeled for recycling, these are just some common daily practices ingrained in us.
To take it a step further, Bio-Plastic has dedicated themselves to providing a greener planet through the development of environment friendly solutions. By distributing Oxo-biodegradable plastic products and selling them to consumers and manufacturers who want a responsible and sustainable approach to protecting our environment, Bio-Plastic provides an umbrella of services which include in-house design of packaging, warehousing and scheduled distribution of inventory to your doorstep. Recently awarded the “Singapore Green Label” by the Singapore Environment Council, Bio-Plastic products retain the characteristics of regular plastic which is strong, tough and flexible, and are low in cost to manufacture, convenient and most importantly, biodegradable.
Reverte Oxo-Biodegradable master-batches consist of a micro-cellulose powder, together with a harmless metal ion, compounded into a Polyethylene carrier resin.
So what is it that makes Bio-Plastic products able to break down? A trademarked additive called Reverte, provides programmable degradation of plastics which is cost competitive and results in a complete and harmless disintegration in various environments. Don’t be alarmed by this additive because currently, there are Bio-Plastic products which are made to store consumables. You will be surprised that they provide food packaging for food & beverage outlets commonly found in Singapore. If that’s not good enough for you, they manufacture carrier bags for branded goods in the North American and European marketplace, even being safe enough to be used as apron material for hospitals!
Biodegradation can only occur (whether this is for Reverte® plastics or for grass cuttings) in environments which have warmth, bacterial activity and moisture. This fact is often overlooked when marketing oxo-biodegradable or hydro-biodegradable materials.
Currently, conventional non-degradable plastics can persist unchanged for many years, and Reverte provides the safest, most cost-effective, environmentally safe way to degrade plastic. As the largest proportion of single use plastics such as those used in disposable packaging which end up in landfills or worse, our oceans, Reverte’s technology safely biodegrades plastic waste from within a few months to a maximum of 5 years, thus reducing volume to help maximise capacity utilisation and aid in landfill compression. While not a total solution to littering, degradable plastics help avoid the accumulation of unsightly litter in our environment.
If you own a business or know of a business owner who utilises plastics quickly, help to save the environment and turn to Bio-Plastics for your solutions!
