Paladone brings biodegradable plastic to gift space
Gift designer and supplier Paladone is bringing BDP (naturally decomposing plastic) to the gift trade via a new range that uses Breakdown Plastic technology.
Breakdown Plastic’s organic additive, BDP, is designed to be used in synthetic polymers to enhance the biodegradation of plastics in landfill, allowing microbes to consume the plastics in a matter of a few years instead of centuries or longer.
From this summer, Paladone will be introducing a line of its popular themed and licensed egg-cups using this organic additive, with more items lined up to use the additive from 2019 onwards.
“Our aim is to bring sustainable and naturally decomposable products to the global gift market and by trialling the new Egg Cup range we hope to achieve creativity and affordability with the lowest carbon footprint possible,” said Paladone marketing manager, Alex Ryan.
“We pride ourselves on a strong ethical trading practice and take a planetary approach to the product development process. Eco-design principles have become part of our creative process, and as a company, we constantly review materials used, their construction, and the way in which products are packaged.”
