Why is moulded pulp a great alternative to plastic?
We launched Pacific Pulp Molding in 1998 with the vision of “a world beyond plastics” – where the environmental toxicity produced by traditional packaging is replaced by recyclable, biodegradable and compostable molded pulp. Using only recycled newsprint, recycled cardboard and water, our molded pulp process sidesteps the chemicals and petroleum raw materials utilized in plastics.
Gentle on the environment, molded pulp will biodegrade in an outdoor garden in six months (449.5 years quicker than plastic!). Molded pulp can also be recycled in virtually all local recycling programs or composted at home, an attractive feature appealing to today’s informed consumers.
Compostable – appeals to broadest spectrum of consumers.
Biodegradable – completely disintegrates, versus plastic and foam that remain
100% Recycled – made from 100% post-consumer products, saving both energy and resources.
Cradle-to-Cradle – fully recyclable – in either curbside collection or back to source for re-use.
European Green Dot Compliant – broadens your market of European customers.
Conforms To ISO 14000 Standards – appeals to strict requirements of ISO-compliant purchasers.
