After long deliberation and consideration, we have decided to switch from our current 10oz
glass bottles to a larger 12oz eco-friendly plastic bottle and plastic quart bottles.
One of the main reason we originally used glass bottles was for their re-usability. The return
and re-use rate has not been as high as we hoped.
We selected a product that features cutting edge technology in next-generation sustainability
packaging: recyclable & landfill biodegradable plastic bottles. Studies show that the majority
(86%) of plastics are discarded in landfills. The bottles we have selected will biodegrade in 5
years instead of 700 years for a typical plastic container and does not contaminate the
recycling stream as they are 100% recyclable. Also, per Carnegie Mellon University study,
glass requires twice the energy to produce, produces 3 times more greenhouse gases and 7
times more global warming gasses than plastic.
Although our bottles are not meant for compost environments, nor is
it oxo-degradable in the open environment; the additive technology is
specially designed to naturally biodegrade through microorganisms
when disposed of properly in a landfill environment. These plastic
bottles are effectively converted into soil, water and gas within
landfills through a natural microbial process.
It is intentionally formulated for controlled biodegradation that is
conducive for Clean Energy capturing projects (US EPA LMOP), while
integrating seamlessly with today’s waste disposal infrastructure and
its performance is supported by internationally recognized ASTM
standards and Bio-Methane Potential (BMP) studies as well as End-
Of-Life Responsibility studies.
