The threat of `Biodegradable` Plastics

Australia will soon be banning ‘biodegradable’ plastic because of the threat it poses to the environment and ecosystems. Even plastic noted as being ‘biodegradable’ breaks down into micro-plastic particles that go into the earth and ocean and are ingested by wildlife.

Biodegradable plastic is not held to any standard or certification – many of the plastics sold as
‘biodegradable’ will indeed take decades or even centuries to properly break down.

The only way to avoid this is to eliminate the problematic plastics and Ecorite is proud to offer one of the largest collections of cotton totes and accessories in the promotional marketplace.
