Biodegradable Drinkware

The irresponsible disposal of plastic products is a major concern for both the industry and general public. Making plastic products more sustainable and environementally-friendly is extremely important to plastic producers and distributors alike. On-the-go or disposable food packaging is one particular area of concern. These items are often thrown away irresponsibly, or 'littered'. 

Polymateria™ is an advanced technology company developing a new standard in biodegradable and compostable plastics.

Cycle+ is an additive for supporting biodegradability in long service life products (6 months - 3 years). It brings advanced biodegradation technology to different types of plastic, without affecting its recyclability within the product’s use life.
