Goodies with alternatives to plastic!
Different natural materials can be an alternative to plastic to design your goodies! At Marketing Création, we make strong commitments to produce your goodies in a sustainable way with a limited impact on the environment. To do so, we suggest using alternative materials to plastic for more natural &and sustainable advertising objects. You will thus benefit from successful communication while preserving our planet a little more.
Produce your goodies differently with alternative materials to plastic
To do this, we have broken down the alternative products into two categories. First we will talk about materials, of natural origin, which can decompose in our environment quickly. We will then talk about the circular economy in the promotional object sector through the recycling of existing elements, which avoids the dumping of new products on the market, while reducing the energy impact of the creation of the goodies.
&Amp goodies; advertising objects made from natural materials:
PLA, or polylacticacid, is a plastic widely used in our society. It is more precisely a bio-plastic, made from corn starch, sugar cane, beet, etc. It is fully biodegradable, a goodies in PLA does not pollute nature at the end of its life.
Glass is made from natural materials: sand, soda &ash and limestone. The latter is manufactured by combining mainly these 3 elements at high temperature. Although the degradation time of glass is long, on average 4,000 years, it is infinitely adaptable for goodies that renew themselves.
Bamboo is one of the plants requiring little water with a very important growth. It can replenish itself in as little as a year without fertilizer. Bamboo is renewable, strong and durable. Bamboo can be found in the category of advertising objects dedicated to the kitchen: mug, cutting board etc...
During roasting, the pod is usually discarded. It is an environmentally friendly resource that can replace plastic in some promotional items. After oil, coffee is the second most traded product in the world, which implies vast prospects for this material in the advertising sector.
Wheat straw is generally an agricultural waste product that remains after the extraction of the grain or the cultivation of wheat. This material can be reused in an environmentally friendly way by reducing the proportion of plastic used in goodies such as glasses.
Cork comes from the bark of the oak tree. When it is removed, a new layer is formed, so it is a% renewable resource. Cork is also elastic, waterproof and soft to the touch for very pure goodies.
Recycled materials for the upcycling of goodies
Cotton is the most widely used textile fibre in the world. Mainly cultivated in India, China and the United States, cotton needs a mild climate and a significant amount of water (about 11,000 litres of water for about 1 kilo of cotton). Recycling cotton using materials already used or losses from industrial production can drastically reduce water consumption, sometimes by as much as 98%.
Recycled paper is becoming more and more common, its price is getting closer to or even lower than conventional paper. Soon paper will no longer come from trees, but from recycling. Paper and cardboard contain biodegradable fibre that promotes recycling.
