What is Plantplastic®?

Last Updated: Feb 17, 2016 10:43AM PST
Like you, we recognize that plastic packaging is a major problem—it’s made from crude oil, an increasingly scarce resource associated with pollution. That’s why we have worked to harness the power of nature to implement an innovative new PolyEthylene (PE)—a green plastic we call Plantplastic® that's renewable, reusable and recyclable—and made from sugarcane! Manufacturing our new Plantplastic® is unbelievably simple. Sugarcane is harvested to produce sugar, which is then fermented and distilled to produce ethanol. This ethanol is dehydrated to create ethylene, which is polymerized into Plantplastic®. That’s really all there is to it.
