BIO-PLASTIC

Always more concerned about the impact of the industry on the environment, we have recently integrated a range of organic plastic in our panel of raw materials.

We propose you different spirits of composition more ecological and respectful of the environment:

  • In more classic, spirit of the fields: wheat, barley, hull of rice, corn.
  • In more original, marine spirit: mussel shells, oysters, scallops and seaweed.
  • Fruity: cocoa, coffee grounds, olive stones, grape seeds.
  • Vegetable fibers: wood, cork, miscanthus, linen.
  • Floral: rose, lavender.

Its texture (rough, smooth or soft) as well as its rigidity or flexibility varies according to the matrix used and its load.

The effects obtained with the mixture of these co-products can, in some cases, recall other materials.

The intensity of the odors can be modulated according to the coproducts.

By processing this type of plastic, we contribute to improving the environmental impact of our products. Firstly, through its biodegradable nature, offering an additional option for the end of life of our products and allowing a reduction in waste volumes.

Secondly, by using renewable resources for its manufacture, which allows a reduction in the use of fossil resources and greenhouse gas emissions.

It allows us not only to preserve fossil fuels, but also to decrease the rate of pollution caused by waste.

We are committed to putting in place all possible means to work for the protection of the planet.

 

LABEL MORE

In May 2020, our company was awarded the MORE label in recognition of our commitment to reducing our environmental footprint.

We have implemented new processes to promote the use of recycled raw materials in the production of our products.

By favoring the use of these materials, we are opting for a more sustainable consumption with products that concentrate more and more recycled plastics.

This label shows our integration in the circular economy but also our daily investment in reducing the content of virgin plastic raw materials in our product panel.

During a short survey, we listed by recycled polymer the tonnage used by our company during 2020 of recycled raw materials from mechanical or chemical recycling of the following waste:

  • Post-consumer: waste generated by households at home or away from home.
  • Commercial: waste generated by commercial activities (stores, supermarkets, offices…)
  • Post-industrial: waste generated by industrial activities (packaging, unsold goods, etc.) and treated outside the site that generated it.

We take very seriously our role in the circular economy, which consists of producing goods in a sustainable way while limiting consumption, waste of resources and waste production.
