ECOLOGICAL BENEFITS –
TICKING THE GREEN BOXES
Ethically and sustainably sourced raw materials.
Deco Bioglitter™ is based on naturally derived raw materials that are ethically and sustainably sourced. They are cellulose based which is extracted from hardwoods, preferably eucalyptus, sourced from responsibly managed and certified plantations operating to PEFC™ www.pefc.org standards.
Bioglitter™ is designed to biodegrade quickly and safely in natural freshwater environments.
Ronald Britton Ltd uses TÜV OK biodegradable WATER certification as a simple and clear means of communicating this fact to our customers. We have taken this approach as terms such as ‘100% plastic free’ and ‘100% biodegradable’ can be used without qualification and don’t necessarily describe the eco credentials of a product.
At Ronald Britton, we believe OK biodegradable WATER certification cuts through the confusion. Moreover, the ISO14851/ISO14852 tests at the heart of this certification are also specified by ECHA (European Chemicals Agency) in its proposed EU Microplastic legislation due to be published in 2022. These tests are used to determine whether or not a polymeric material is considered a microplastic.
