Consumers are no longer plastic addicts, and are increasingly demanding earth-conscious alternatives. Konsiderate takes sustainability seriously, and our plastic alternative range reflects that.
Konsiderate offers our Degradable range as an affordable, considered base product. We understand it’s not always viable to take one giant leap into totally greenifying your entire product range or systems. So we created a tiered attack, starting with Degradables and followed by options for biodegradables and totally guilt-free Compostable products.
Information about “degradables” can be confusing. Most plastic will degrade...eventually (over centuries)!
But Konsiderate degradable plastic options can break down much faster. It is a type of plastic known as oxo degradable.
Konsiderate’s oxo degradable plastic is created by incorporating an additive called TDPA® which accelerates degradation. Within a few months to a few years, the plastic can break down to tiny molecules, which may then be biodegraded by micro-organisms.
TDPA Additives are non-toxic & safe for food.
Reduced water course blockages from plastic rubbish.
Small price difference to conventional plastic, and an easy first step towards greener products.
TDPA OXO Degradables can be reused and recycled, prior to the onset of degradation.
Breaking down to tiny molecules helps to reduce wildlife and livestock endangerment from eating single-use plastics.
Degradable options prevent damage to business reputation in a climate where consumers are demanding sustainable and socially responsible products & practices.
It makes a whole lotta business sense to investigate Konsiderate’s tiered attack for plastic alternatives - degradables are typically only slightly higher in price point than traditional plastics, plus you’ll get the Green Biz Benefits and bragging rights.
