Oxo biodegradable plastic: supreme eco-friendliness
In the world of the green footprint, the single main problem that we have created is our dependency on fossil fuel based products. Plastic is all around us. From the minute we get up in the morning and use a toothbrush to almost every aspect of our lives, we are surrounded by plastic produced from oil. It has taken a lot of yelling to bring corporations to the realization that they must seek renewable and sustainable alternatives. The general public needed to buy-into the green effort and now companies see that there are dollars to back the products. While bioplastics have been around for many years, not all offer the ability to biodegrade in any kind of an ecologically conscious manner. Research has continued and thus enter Oxo biodegradable plastic.
What makes Oxo biodegradable plastic different from other bioplastics? The techniques developed to create this new wonder product gives it the ability to use oxidization as the key for biodegrading. Whenever this plastic is exposed to oxygen or micro-organisms that produce oxygen, it reduces the time period to around one hundred and twenty days. The elements that make up the Oxo biodegradable plastics are tested for ecotoxicity; which means the natural products are completely recyclable and have no impact on the earth or soil.
There is no doubt that the Oxo biodegradable plastics have come of age. They seem to answer all of the cons of past bioplastic issues. The product cost is low, they have a better biodegradable rate, they can be used in many facets of our lives to replace oil based plastics.
