Sustainable materials behind The Wheat Way
Plastic as an invention has now become a huge environmental problem with more media attention being drawn to the issue in the past decade.
A more environmentally friendly alternative to plastic using sustainable materials is required as a means to help push people into a lifestyle that are more aware of sustainable consumption.
Humans have produced 8.3 billion metric tons of plastics since large-scale production of the synthetic material began in the early 1950's. Out of this 8.3 billion metric tons 75.9% (6.3 billion metric tons) of this has become waste and only 9% (567,000,000 metric tons) was recycled and 79% (4,977,000 metric tons) ended up in landfills.
The current use of plastic cannot go on. This is why our products, made using wheat, a sustainable material, are ideal alternative to plastic products.
As an example Our wheat straws only use sustainable materials and are completely bio - degradable.
