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.
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 which is why our wheat products made using sustainable materials are an ideal alternative as they are made using wheat. This is a simple by-product of wheat harvesting. Our wheat straws only use sustainable materials and are completely bio - degradable.
