Saving the planet!

Our daily lives are full of cardboard. It comes as packaging in almost everything we buy. The UK produces around 8 million tons of cardboard packaging each year. It is actually made up of cellulose fibres that are created from wood pulp. Sadly this means fresh cardboard requires cutting down trees. Fortunately cardboard is fairly easy to recycle, so by using recycled cardboard we can help save our forests! The other great feature of recycled cardboard is that it is biodegradable. This means that becoBowls are not only easy to recycle, but are also safe if they do ever end up in landfill sites.

Plant fibres

Our most important material in the Becothings range is the plastic replacement made from natural plant fibres. It is actually a biocomposite which means it is a mix of biodegradable materials.

Around 80% of the material is made up of fibres from bamboo and rice husks. Rice husks are a by-product of rice production, so it is a great material to use as it is normally thrown away! Although you might picture bamboo as tall thin trees, it is actually a breed of grass and so grows incredibly fast. This means all the bamboo we use can be sustainably grown.

Both these materials are mixed with a resin created from amino acids. It is this resin that bonds all the fibres together. Importantly it also allows the mix to break down. When you place a plant fibre product in warm, damp conditions, like a compost heap or buried in the ground, the resin will start to break down. This in-turn allows the fibres to break down, eventually the product will fully biodegrade away. This process will usually take around 2 to 3 years depending on the environmental conditions.
