Using bioplastic rather than petroleum based plastic is more sustainable because when sugar cane grows, the plant absorbs carbon dioxide (CO2), a greenhouse gas, highly detrimental to our planet’s health.
Although bioplastic is currently the best alternative to conventional plastic, as an ethically driven company, we believe it is our responsibility to be as transparent as possible with our customers. For that reason, we would like to acknowledge that even though the green plastic tubes we use to package our products absorb CO2 in their production phase which makes them an overall better alternative to fossil fuel based plastic, the tubes remain plastic which is not currently an easy to recycle material.*
We are committed to bettering ourselves by staying up to date with the best available alternatives in the packaging industry. As innovation makes its way through the packaging industry we commit to choosing more environmentally conscious packaging as it is made more accessible.
*Only 9% of the world’s plastic is recycled
