Sustainable packaging made from sugarcaneReading time 1 min
Everything we use has an impact on the planet. The environmental impact of the cosmetics industry is significant, especially due to the heavy use of plastics in packaging. At MIND Naturals, we are aware of this challenge and are committed to sourcing sustainable, recyclable options to plastics.
Through our search, we found an eco-friendly alternative with the same application, flexibility and performance as traditional plastic but with bioplastics made from sugarcane
Conventional plastics are part of our everyday lives, from the frozen peas we bought in protective packaging to pet treats in shelf-stables. However, the impact that these materials are having on the environment is increasingly worrying. Consumers today want to know not only what is in their food, but what is in their packaging. With a massive shift in demand for sustainable products, we have taken on the challenge to source more innovative solutions and reduce the environmental impact of our products
That’s why some of the packaging in our products is made with Sugarcane – a renewable source alternative to traditional polyethylene. Polyethylene is produced from fossil raw materials such as natural gas and oils and is found in many everyday products. However, Sugarcane, is a bioplastic made from a renewable raw material: ethanol from sugarcane.
Sugarcane bioplastic captures and fixes CO2 from the atmosphere during its production, helping to reduce greenhouse gases emission. As sugarcane polymers are a renewable resource and don’t depend on fossil fuels, there is a substantial environmental benefit. Sugarcane bioplastic exhibits the same characteristics as traditional polyethylene regarding application flexibility, performance, and especially in terms of recycling, so you are not making any compromises by using a sustainable solution. Our Sugarcane packaging is 100% recyclable, BPA free and FDA approved.
