ECO FOR LIFE® WATER BOTTLES ARE MADE FROM POLYLACTIC ACID (PLA)
As we know oil is a finite resource and is running out, PET bottles which are made from oil are now seen as bad not only for the environment but also our well being. The complete alternative is………….
Eco for life, the bottles made completely from plants, yes that’s right plants.
We have created Europe’s only 100% plant based bottle from a substance known as PLA (Polylactic acid) a substance derived from sugar starch, commonly found in sugar based crops, we currently use corn.
There are huge benefits associated to this:
As crops grow they consume harmful greenhouse gases such as CO2
Only 0.04% of the annual global crop is used to produce PLA, this means there is little to no impact on world food pricing.
All eco for life bottles are certified GM free.
The Eco for Life bottles can be recycled into a product that can be used as a valuable soil supplement, the bottles undergo a two-step degradation process. First, the moisture and heat in the compost pile attacks the polymer chains and splits them apart, creating smaller polymers and finally lactic acid, a fully sustainable source. They can also be sent to Waste for Energy sites where they produce a high temperature and burn without releasing pollutant or can be returned back to a polymer.
