Our biodegradable packaging
PLA PLASTIC PACKAGING
A more sustainable future with biodegradable, compostable and eco friendly packaging starting here with the bod society. Our day and night creams are in PLA plastic pots which are a special formulation of natural materials that create the look and feel of plastic but can break down in landfill, composted, recycled and more.
Ways to dispose of your PLA plastic
Composting- PLA can be 100% biodegradable within 180 days under composting conditions. The best environment for breaking down PLA is in soil, water and sunlight.
Landfill- It is slower for PLA to biodegrade in landfill than it is in a composting environment which takes about 2-3 years normal plastics take over 1,000 years to break down in landfill with more environmental impacts. The final outcome causes no pollution to the underground water, no harm to plants and wastes no cultivated land.
Recycle- The regrind of PLA can be completely reusable.
Incineration- The combustion heat of PLA is low, when sufficiently burned, recode only producesCO2 and H20 and causes no pollution to the air.
BIODEGRADABLE CARD/PAPER PACKAGING
We have a range of products that are in biodegradable paper/card packaging which is completely biodegradable in landfill and composting. This is an alternative to plastic and other hard materials.
HOW DOES IT WORK.
Once you have finished using your products you can then recycle the tubes as a seed pot. Simply remove any remaining product and fill each tube with soil, add a couple of seedlings, water daily & leave in the sunshine. Make sure you place your bio tubes in the garden so when they start to break down they will do so into soil leaving behind a beautiful plant.
Why use glass and how is it more eco friendly.
Glass doesn't contain BPA or chemical additives therefore it doesn't leach hazardous chemicals into its contents. glass is non toxic and less porous which makes it harder to be damaged by environmental factors which means it can be recycled multiple times without the quality being diminished.
