Plastic is everywhere. You probably have several pieces of Plastic somewhere around you right now. We benefit from plastic every day but what if there was a way to make it even better? There is a “new” type of plastic product on the market that you may not have heard about and it is referred to Biobased plastic .
Biobased plastics are products that HELP the environment. At Samsill, we have researched bioplastics for years and now incorporate this material into our own Earth’ Choice Biobased 3 Ring Binder.
We put together 3 reasons why biobased plastics are better than traditional plastics.
- Help save fossil resources
Biobased products help save fossil resources, including: natural gas and oil. By switching to renewable resources we create an improved environment. Sugarcane is one of the highest producing plants for biobased plastic. There are many other crops that are used for renewable resources, including: switchgrass, corn, bamboo, hemp, willow, etc.
2. Reduces CO2 emissions
Braskem’s polyethylene (which is what we use in our biobased binders) is made from sugarcane ethanol. Which “removes 2.15 kilograms of CO2 from the air with each kilogram produced” states an article written by Braskem.
Basically sugarcane eats CO2.
3. Creates Jobs
“According to a report USDA released in 2015, bio-based products contribute $369 billion to the U.S. economy each year and support, directly and indirectly, 4 million jobs” stated a press release by Braskem.
Anything that is a job creator is good in our book!
Overall, by creating a small difference in a person’s purchasing ways can contribute to a better way of living. If you are curious as to how to look for these products, they will be labeled.
Look for the label below.
