CREATING THE FUTURE OF BIODEGRADABLE PLASTIC
Truly Green Plastic™ is ground-breaking, eco-friendly cleantech born at the intersection between biotechnology, chemical engineering, and cannabis agriculture. Simply put, we take the leftover plant material from harvesting cannabis and convert it into a fully-biodegradable plastic using a bacterial conversion process.
THE TRULY GREEN JOURNEY
At first, it was a simple idea – why didn’t dog waste bags have the capacity to break down when they made it to landfill? Especially considering that fact they were filled with organic matter, shouldn’t they be designed to dissolve based on contact with their contents?
Once we investigated the existing options at the time, we quickly realized that products on the market were over-engineered – they were able to do much more than hold dog waste and, as a result, needed a much longer amount of time to break down. Many of the so-called ‘biodegradable’ options required either industrial composting plants or significant access to oxygen and sunlight in order to break down, circumstances which are not always practically available.
Our team discovered that cannabis plant biomass was capable of producing degradable plastics with enhanced mechanical properties and we pioneered the method through which to create this eco-friendly, Truly Green Plastic™.
