Biodegradable Future Collaborates with Ocean Plastics Charter of Canada

Biodegradable Future has joined forces with Ocean Plastics Charter of Canada, the Canadian Government and Biodegradable Future are committed to taking strong actions that align with a greener future and share similar goals & objectives. Making a difference in the sustainability arena is of utmost importance and this partnership will ensure a positive sustainable impact in the fight against plastic pollution.

Ocean Plastics Charter of Canada the Canadian OCP (Ocean Plastics Charter) has formally recognized Biodegradable Future, this partnership between Ocean Plastics Charter and Biodegradable Future is just the beginning of recognition for organic biodegradable additives.

Half of all plastics ever manufactured have been made in the last 15 years. Production increased exponentially, from 2.3 million tons in 1950 to 448 million tons by 2015. Production is expected to double by 2050.

“Canada is taking ambitious action to reduce plastic pollution and waste, through a comprehensive approach that takes targeted action across the entire lifecycle of plastics. It aims to keep plastics in the economy and out of the environment, and reach zero plastic waste by 2030. As such, Canada has spearheaded the Ocean Plastics Charter since 2018, the only global framework that asks government, business and organization signatories to take a resource-efficient lifecycle management approach to plastic waste.”

Biodegradable Future’s biotechnology ensures that the additives make plastic and polymers react better with microbes in the ocean and in landfills allowing them to consume it while utilizing the plastic as a food source.

Every year, about 8 million tons of plastic waste escapes into the oceans from coastal nations. Some plastic products are estimated to take at least 400 years to break down. (Reference National Geographic’s)

Leviticus Bentley CEO of biodegradable future “We are extremely pleased to be working with Ocean Plastics Charter they carry a great amount of respect in the sustainability industry – they’re highly credible organization in the fight to create a more sustainable future for the world.

We have the solution and we are pleased to be acknowledged as a big player in the sustainability sphere with the likes of Nestle, PepsiCo, Unilever, Walmart, Volvo, IKEA and Coca-Cola to name a few. We are very pleased to be added to the list of endorsing partners and look forward to our inclusion in this project.

It’s encouraging to see so many of the worlds largest brands aligned with this charter and we are looking forward to working with them to assist in educating and creating awareness for a greener future.

The charter brings together leading governments, businesses and civil society organizations to support its objectives and commit to taking action to move towards a more resource efficient and sustainable approach to the management of plastics.

About Biodegradable Future:
Biodegradable Future is a major distributor of organic additives that help plastic and polymer products biodegrade. The additives do not change the appearance or characteristics of a product, but simply enable microbes to consume the plastic in landfills, oceans and soils.

With the staggering number of plastic products that end up in landfills and the ocean every year, there is pressure for companies to clean up their business practices and find alternatives when it comes to packaging and product design. There are a number of reasons why these additives are an excellent option for any company who wants to be environmentally conscious while working with plastics and polymers.

Our additives maintaining the strength of the material, are cost-effective, easily implemented, versatile and have been tested and proven to work.

Biodegradable Future’s C-level executives bring brand awareness to global sustainability market

Biodegradable Future – a sustainability sector business providing organic additives which make plastic biodegradable – has attracted a string of international C-Level partners, previously associated with a multitude of global brands.
Biodegradable Future’s C-level executives bring brand awareness to global sustainability market
Making inroads in tackling plastic pollution sustainably, Biodegradable Future works with additives that break down polymers (in plastic), making it biodegradable on contact with microbes.

C-Level executives have made a beeline for the business, recognising the opportunity being part of Biodegradable Future brings. Environmentally driven and sustainably active businesses currently enjoy the highest ranking. Particularly in a world where 79% of the all-pervasive plastic pollution still ends up in landfills, the ocean or the environment.

Many members of Biodegradable Future’s 36-strong team bring their knowledge from close associations with some of the world’s leading brands. Their understanding of how international organisations ‘think’ and having a more expansive vision will undoubtedly contribute to Biodegradable Future’s growth. As a bonus, one partner brings his prestigious mentorship as a certified Lean Six Sigma Black Belt recipient.

Comprising a versatile and skill-diverse team, they include a top-level coach, an environmental engineer, a multinational project director, a chemical technologist and a technology solutions specialist. There’s even a researcher-turned-assistant professor from Harvard University amongst them.

Additionally, there’s a sales leader, a sales and performance coach, a growth strategy specialist and an analyst/marketing expert. The analyst/marketing man’s top clients at The Nielsen Corporation (previously AC Nielsen) included the likes of billion-dollar revenue companies Coke, Unilever, Heinz and a range of Pepsi’s partners at Cadbury Schweppes.

Also working with high-profile brands, the growth strategy specialist’s achievements involved being responsible for iconic brands including Dove, Lucozade, Cornetto and Horlicks, amongst others. This member also worked with a British multinational pharmaceutical company, GlaxoSmithKline. Further illustrating his versatility, he worked with startups in video games at Nintendo. Nintendo featured in Forbes’ ‘top 100 most valuable brands’ list.

The sales and performance coach valued his working relationship with Gillette and Pernod Ricard India. Pernod Ricard is the world’s second-largest alcohol beverage company. Other multinationals he worked with include Johnson & Johnson and Ansell. The latter manufactures protective industrial and medical gloves.

British-founded footwear business, Clarks, was home to the sales leader who impacted positively here, delivering 10X to the company. The nearly 200-year-old Clarks employs 2,600 associates globally.

There’s also a mechanical engineer whose innovative technology solutions led to his working with global corporations including Spinnaker International (Banking Solutions), Schneider Electric (networking solutions), Gemalto (Global Leader in Smart Card), Biocryptology (Cybersecurity) and Solectron (Global EMS Provider).

While lubricant, coatings and speciality chemicals were the domain of a chemical technologist who cut his teeth with the likes of Royal Dutch SHELL, Hempel A/S, TOTAL SA and Asian Paints.

As much of a mixed bag geographically, partners come from five continents. Countries include the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, India, Malaysia, South Africa and the United Arab Emirates.

Sectors the team have worked in cover everything from industrial, healthcare, life sciences, education and retail to arts and entertainment, manufacturing, financials, science and technology, energy and the information and communications technology [ICT] sectors, to name some.

Members have also been involved in the private, non-profit and government sectors. An example of the latter is the partnership between a member and the Dubai government’s Planning and Design department. As head of sustainability, the engineer is responsible for multiple developers and environmental health and safety.

Health and safety are high priorities for both Biodegradable Future and some island countries, such as the Maldives and Malaysia who are banning plastic unless they’re biodegradable.

More than adequately equipped technologically and with the above-mentioned human resource know-how to successfully deliver on sustainability contracts, Biodegradable Future is evidently doing something right. Sales have been going extremely well internationally with their ‘green’ plastic pollution solution and they look forward to announcing some international brands shortly.

Biodegradable Future’s chief executive officer, Leviticus Bentley said: “We are extremely pleased with the addition of seasoned sales directors that have worked with industry-related companies such as Unilever, Coke, Heinz and Cadbury Schweppes. As well as holding high C-level positions in these companies and adding an immense amount of sales, marketing, operational and legal experience”.

We have developed an additive for plastic that will naturally biodegrade when it ends up in a landfill, ocean or soil. The additive does not compromise the plastic goods physical characteristics and also doesn’t negatively impact the recycling process. 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 biodegradable when it comes into contact with microbes in landfills, soil and oceans.

Biodegradable Future and Clearer Conscience Recycling Collaborate in 2021 to Ensure a More Sustainable Circular Economy

Biodegradable Future and Clearer Conscience Recycling have formed a strategic alliance with the common goal of informing, educating & collaborating with consumers and industry-related brands about the benefits of biodegradable additives which provide a crucial insurance policy against plastics & polymers that escape the existing recycling systems.

“After lengthy discussions, meetings, in-depth market and product research we feel it’s imperative to inform and communicate to the sustainability market that recycling on its own will not be enough to ensure an 100% circular economy for the foreseeable future,” suggests Leviticus Bentley, CEO of Biodegradable Future. Whilst recycling remains the #1 force to combat the global plastic crisis, it needs to be supported by various green initiatives, for example not using plastic and polymers where possible and if, if they do, to make sure they are biodegradable. Biodegradable Future additives biodegrade plastics and polymers into biomass. Should these products evade the recycling system and end up in landfills, the ocean or the environment they will biodegrade into biomass in hundreds of days as opposed to hundreds of years.

Leviticus states, “According to GreenPeace, less than 21% of the plastic we produce has been recycled. What happens to the other 79%? It pollutes our landfills, oceans and groundwater for hundreds, even thousands of years.” Greenpeace are pushing for single-use plastic to be banned. That is a huge development but will take time. In the interim, companies like Biodegradable Future have a solution: adding their compound to single-use plastics. Many islands are adopting a ban on single-use plastic unless it is biodegradable.

Andy Conder, CEO of Clearer Conscience Recycling stated “We are extremely pleased and impressed with the growth and adoption of Biodegradable Future internationally. All consumers need to recycle. We all know we should try and take our own bags when we go shopping, but do we ever consider the irony of the packaging that our items are wrapped in?” Online shopping and delivery services have seen huge growth during the coronavirus pandemic.
“When more households, businesses and industrial producers make sure they collect material that can be recycled there will be an increase in the facilities for recycling. This will lead to an increase in employment as well as a decrease in the volume of natural resources that are extracted from the planet each year and increased efficiency of these processes going forward,” The education, adoption and execution will take a significant amount of time – possibly generations – therefore it’s critical to make sure that there is a sustainable approach combining recycling, biodegration and alternative options to the use of plastics and polymers.

“In our experience, more people want to recycle more material than they currently can. I was surprised to observe that Cape Town recycles more materials that most London boroughs,” says Andy. “Factors to consider are costs involved, infrastructure, industry’s willingness and government perspectives.”
Both Biodegradable Future and Clearer Conscience Recycling agree a multi-faceted approach is required to speed up a sustainable situation that will address the issues currently faced that are hindering moves towards a circular economy.

About Clearer Conscience:
Founded in 2008, Clearer Conscience Recycling operates in and around Cape Town, benefiting charities and worthy causes. The teams are friendly, helpful and trusted.

About Biodegradable Future:
Biodegradable Future is a lead supplier of plastic additives that are changing the way we work with plastic. We have developed an additive will not compromise the physical characteristics of your plastic goods, will not negatively impact the recycling process or compostability and, if it ends up in a landfill, ocean or soil, it will naturally biodegrade.

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.

These products are of a commercial grade quality with no changes to quality and shelf life of the finished products.
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.
