Changing petroleum-based bottles into plant-based bottles.
We represent a manufacturer of PLA bottles – preforms. Compostable, recyclable, burnable bottles for water, milk and juices. We believe in leaving future generations a healthier planet where consumer product packaging has a lower environmental impact, generates less waste, and is recyclable, compostable, and sustainable.
In 2004, the USA company started with the first-ever PLA milk bottle. In 2008, they switched to solving the problem of one of the most pollutant products in the world—— the petroleum plastic water bottle. The PLA juice bottles and PLA milk bottles are the next logical products that will reduce the single-use plastic waste issues. Some of our plant-based preforms are still in development. If you have questions and would like to know more about the work that is underway, contact us with the button below.
Petroleum-based, single-use plastics such as bottles, caps, straws, and food utensils clog landfills and contaminate our landscapes and watersheds. We are dedicated to reducing the usage of environmentally-unsound, single-use plastics. We favor non-GMO, plant-based PLA, and PHA resins for manufacturing unique compostable preforms which make earth-friendly bottles.
PLA bottles can be disposed of through industrial composting, recycled, incinerated, or digested with food waste which converts the mash to greywater. We are looking for “closed-loop” venues which allow ‘point-of-use” collection of empty bottles and caps, which then will undergo proper end-of-life processing.
To get our compostable bottles on the market we work together with bottlers to covert the preforms to bottles, and fill them with superior water, which will offer consumers the “best water in the best bottle in the world”.
Do you want to lower your CO2 emission?
Have less single-use fossil plastic waste?
Have a great marketing tool and create a circular environment?
You are at the right place—at the right time. We would love to work with you to make the Earth a better place to live.
We choose our sites very carefully.
We want to ensure that our PLA bottles are processed in the correct end-of-life solution. This way we/you create the highest environmental impact with our PLA bottles. That is why we have chosen to only use our plant-based bottles of water in closed-loop locations. This ensures that there is a controlled way to arrange the end-of-life waste stream.
Our goal is to collect 90% of our bottles 90% of the time in order to process them with an “added value” end of life solution.
Our PLA bottles have multiple end of life solutions, and together with our clients, we look for the best one for their situation. We can use: recycling, industrial composting, anaerobic digestion, incineration and digesting machines as a solution.
Many locations are “closed-loop” by definition. Airports, airlines, cruise lines, corporate dining areas, catering companies, sports events, music events, island nations, military bases, universities, hotels, resorts, and restaurants.
Our company is part of www.goPHA.org. (GO!PHA) is a member-driven, non-profit initiative to accelerate the development of the PHA-platform industry. They provide a platform for sharing experiences, knowledge, and facilitating joint development initiatives. www.GoPHA.org
With our head-office in the USA, an office in the Netherlands and several representatives in key locations of the world, we have a wide network of specialists that can support your plant-based packaging questions.
We believe in leaving future generations a healthier planet. It is time for consumer product packaging to have a softer environmental impact, generating less waste, and is both compostable and sustainable.
Consumer education regarding composting and the use of other more environmentally-friendly waste management actions accompany the distribution of the product line that we represent.
We distribute our plant-based bottles of water only within “closed-loop” venues. Whereby used containers are collected on-site and undergo proper end-of-life processing. Our goal is to get 90% of the PLA bottles back after use, 90% of the time. Collecting the bottles and converting them to an acceptable and even “value-added” end of life option, is a part of our mission.
In 2004, we started with the first in the world PLA milk bottle. In 2008, we switched to solving the problem of one of the most polluting single-use fossil plastic products of the world. “The plastic water bottle.” The PLA juice bottle will become the newest member of our product line. Our R&D team is continuously working on more solutions to the single-use plastic problems around the world. We believe that PHA will have a major role to play in that effort.
Bioplastics are an essential part of the bioeconomy and a fast-growing, innovative industry that has the potential to decouple economic growth from resource depletion and environmental impact. Bioplastics are a diverse family of materials with differing properties. There are three main groups:
PLA is the bio-plastic that we use for our plant-based bottles, caps, and labels. PLA is one of the bioplastics that has the highest volume of production and is the most widespread bio-plastic in the industry. Our PLA bottles are made from sugarcane and are NON-GMO.
The much newer bio-plastic PHA is at the moment researched and tested within our company to become a candidate for making preforms and bottles.
