ordinary plastic vs. our bioplastic:
Remarkably strong and comes in fun colors.
Most contains BPA, phthalates, and PVC.
Contains none of these harmful chemicals.
Made from earth-polluting petroleum.
Made from corn grown in the U.S.
Lingers on our planet for at least 500 years.
Totally gone in 2-3 years in marine environments (washed out to sea)*, buried in soil, or in everyday compost.
Merely breaks down into tiny bits which are responsible for killing millions of marine animals every year.
Biodegrades—which means micro-organisms happily feast on it and make it disappear completely.
*Our bioplastic, from Mirel™, is the only bioplastic certified to biodegrade in marine environments.
