Vita Go Beverages introduces biodegradable bottles

Biodegradable Future is pleased to announce that Vita Go Beverages will be rolling out with Biodegradable Future Bottles. The companies are at the forefront of their industry and this alliance further strengthens the companies product offering while keeping health and sustainability at the top of the brands focus.
Only 9% of all plastic waste ever produced has been recycled. About 12% has been incinerated, while the rest – 79% – has accumulated in landfills, dumps or the natural environment.

Microorganisms are naturally attracted to carbon, a compound that plastic contains. However, the carbon strains in plastic (polymers) are too long making them impossible for microbes to break them down. Our additive changes the DNA of regular plastic to make it easily biodegrade when it comes into contact with microbes in landfills, soil and oceans.

By 2050 plastic could emit 56 billion tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions, as much as 14% of the earth’s remaining carbon budget. By 2100, it will emit 260 billion tonnes, more than half of the carbon budget.

Leviticus Bentley, CEO of Vita Go Beverages, says: “Our company is very happy to announce Vita Go’s collaboration with Biodegradable Future. We are now able offer a truly authentic Vitamin Water that has far more sustainable packaging than any other bottle on the market. At Vita Go our purpose is to deliver the best tasting, healthiest beverages for people to enjoy. Now we are able to add one of the most sustainable packaging solutions in the world. It’s a dream come true for our team.”

Dean Lynch, president of Biodegradable Future, adds: “We have always admired Vita Go Beverages and their brand ethos. They are one of the very few beverage companies in the world that offer a genuine vitamin water, through their innovative cap technology. We are delighted Vita Go has once again pioneered their way forward, now offering a much more sustainable packaging solution for their healthy minded customers and the rest of the planet”

The companies have signed long-term agreements and plan on delivering both domestically and internationally.

Filtech collaborates with Biodegradable Future to produce Biodegradable PPE

The Covid-19 pandemic has increased the amount of single-use products used by the health industry and the general public, with disposal masks being a recommendation for daily use and wear in many countries worldwide now.
Single-use masks that are not homemade from material and washed for re-use, are generally made from polypropylene (PP), a fossil fuel-derived plastic that takes hundreds of years to degrade. These masks are now becoming litter that is found in the oceans where marine life come into contact with them. The masks also shed harmful microplastics into waterways, which may be consumed by fish.

Biodegradable Future has collaborated with Filtech to create a biodegradable mask, and with Filtech’s more than 20 years of experience in air filtration, they are uniquely qualified to respond to the need for protective masks that are not harmful to the environment and further exacerbate our problems with plastic pollution.

Frank Shen President of Filtech “It is important to encourage the use of biodegradable masks going forward, whether simple ones for the general public, or medical masks with a higher level of protection.”

Current PPE masks are made from a complex mix of materials that require specific technology to recycle them, which costs more than the value of the recycled material.

Leviticus Bentley CEO of Biodegradable Future says “Our team is delighted to be partnering with Filtech to create a more sustainable footprint with in the single use PPE space”.

Barry Cocks, Director of Biodegradable Future, Dubai added “ Thanks to Biodegradable Future, We are at the end of an era where plastic products lasted for hundreds of years”.

The initial production roll out will be focused on Surgical, FFP2 & FFP3 masks whilst moving to a full Biodegradable offering of Personal Protective Equipment PPE.

Biodegradable Future starts production of biodegradable bottles and bags

Biodegradable Future has also started production for client companies which include small – medium size businesses who are embracing a greener way forward. The drive for more sustainable products and way of life has been brought on by the consumer and small businesses. We are working diligently to get the big corporates to also adopt a Biodegradable Future.

Leviticus Bentley, CEO: “Biodegradable products break down much faster than other types of products. These types of products break down into carbon dioxide, water vapor, and organic material, which isn’t harmful to the environment. Plastic waste is a pervasive and global problem. Even as recycling rates rise, not all plastics can be recycled, and many end up in landfills. Biodegradable plastics help solve the problem of plastic waste and is a clean energy source.”

Biodegradable Future’s organic additives do not affect the integrity, quality, strength, durability, or other desirable properties of plastic. Untreated plastics have the same shelf life as those that are treated. The additive is available for EVA, HDPE, PET, LDPE, LLDPE, GPPS, PP, HIPS, Nylon, PVC and Polycarbonate plastics.

Dean Lynch, President: “Sustainability is critical for our planet’s survival. Our team is extremely encouraged by the positive response from the brands and consumers that we are engaging with. Our recent announcement of Biodegradable Masks and PPE was an exciting milestone and now we are proud to announce our range of biodegradable bottles and bags for commercial use. It’s wonderful to be involved with like minded people who are helping create a more sustainable environment.”

Biodegradable Future treated plastics are able to be recycled in normal recycle systems, and meet compostable, landfill and marine biodegrading standards. They are also able to degrade in the ocean.
