Beach toys are only the beginning

We want to make it better. 

Now you too can purchase the material used to make our compostable beach toys. 

Have a vision for a compostable product? 

We can help.

WHAT'S IN IT

The material we use is made from a proprietary blend of 100% compostable plastics derived from renewable feedstocks including corn starch and glucose. This unique compostable material not only reduces the impact of traditional plastics on our environment, it also delivers the strength and heat resistance needed for functional parts.  

 

The material used is 100% compostable according to ASTM D6400 standards.  

 

Selecting bio-based material obtained from renewable resources increases bio-based content and reduces the carbon footprint of the plastic itself. Some calculations show that this process can reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 50% to 80% compared to petroleum-based counterparts (Cok et al., 2014).
