WHY BONNIE BIO IS HERE
Since the invention of petroleum-based plastic, around 165 million tonnes of it has been reported to find its way in our oceans. Estimates suggest that more than 8 million tonnes of plastic currently end up in our oceans each year and that number is growing.
The research shows that up to 50% of plastic is used only once and then thrown away and that we’re only recycling 9% of the plastic we’re using. Traditional petroleum-based plastic not only takes up to 500 years to decompose but also leaches toxic chemicals into the environment while decomposing. We are slowly ruining our planet and it’s time to change this.
Bonnie Bio wants to make a difference. We believe that the use of our certified compostable and biodegradable products will contribute to the sustainability of the planet for our current and future generations by offering alternative options to petroleum-based plastics, without compromising the useful need for plastic-type materials.
Our products are toxin-free & environmentally kind.
Our products are all made from natural corn and vegetable ingredients with no chemical additives to ensure non-toxicity and allow for complete composting and biodegradability, yet they are as sturdy as traditional plastic. They are incredibly environmentally friendly as they break down back to CO2, water and biomass, which are renewable resources and they don’t leach any toxins into the environment whilst breaking down. We even use soy-based ink to print, which is eco-friendly.
