Go Green and Save our Planet!

Everyone wants to give their family the best, be it food or the highest quality healthcare. When looking into products for families it is important to consider all their effects. Many manufacturers are circumspect and use harsh or even toxic chemicals to cut costs, completely disregarding the safety and health of consumers.

Some consumers, however, have become savvy in their choices, opting out of dangerous, chemical-laden products and choosing the eco-friendly way instead. But what are these products, and why are they a better option?

What does “eco-friendly” mean?

This term simply describes a product that is not harmful to the environment. However, it can get more complicated than that, such as not using proper procedures when disposing of products. Yet, there are many benefits to using eco-friendly products that are not simply centered around the health and well-being of the Earth, but all animal species as well.

All our products are made from biodegradable materials such as plant starch, or includes patented additives and fillers, that make them biodegradable.

About Bio-Plastics:

  • Bio-Plastics are generally made from plant-based materials instead of petroleum oil, the raw material used to make conventional plastics.
  • Plant-based raw materials are renewable and sustainable unlike oil which is a limited and finite resource.
  • The carbon footprint of manufacturing bio-plastics is reportedly 75% lower than that of plastic alternatives i.e. their manufacture is kinder to the environment.
  • Bio-Plastics are non-toxic and won’t leach chemicals into food. According to a study conducted by The National Center for Biotechnology Information in America, plastics leach estrogen-like chemicals into food.
  • Bio-Plastics are biodegradable and compostable.
  • Bio-Plastics offer a variety of zero-waste end-of-life options. Bio-Plastics can be recycled with conventional plastics and they can be cleanly incinerated and industrially composted.  This makes bio-plastics a great material for food packaging. The additional benefit of composting is that bio-gas (a renewable energy source) can be collected from the composting system.

Our Latest Products

Coconut flesh is highly nutritious and rich in fibre, vitamins C, E, B1, B3, B5 and B6 and minerals including iron, selenium, sodium, calcium, magnesium and phosphorous. However, the coconut milk available to us in the UK is typically canned and potentially lacking in many of these valuable micronutrients. Unlike cow’s milk, coconut milk is lactose-free so can be used as a milk substitute by those with lactose intolerance. It is a popular choice with vegans, and makes a great base for smoothies, milkshakes or as a dairy alternative in baking. Coconuts contain significant amounts of fat, but unlike other nuts, they provide fat that is mostly in the form of medium chain saturated fatty acids (MCFAs) in particular, one called lauric acid. Lauric acid is converted in the body into a highly beneficial compound called monolaurin, an antiviral, antifungal and antibacterial that destroys a wide variety of disease-causing organisms. It is therefore thought that consumption of coconut milk and other coconut-derived foods may help protect the body from infections and viruses.
