Social Responsibility

Research is showing that plastic can have detrimental effects on our environment and our own health. But that doesn’t mean plastic has to be the enemy. It just means that we have to be more responsible about how we use it, dispose of it and of course, how we create plastic in the first place.

  • Reduce your CO2 emissions

    CO2 Emissions

    At over 400 parts per million, greenhouse gas emissions in our atmosphere are at an all-time high, and they’re having an impact on the equilibrium of our planet.

  • Remove hazardous chemicals

    Green Chemistry

    Every year the world produces 270 million metric tons of Chemicals of High Concern, and estimates show that up to 90% of them are used in petroleum-based plastics.

  • Renewable Resources

    Traditional plastics consume about 8% of the global annual production of fossil fuels. Alternatively, Solegear’s bioplastics are based on plant-based materials.

  • Recycling

    The recycling industry is optimized to sort the most valuable after-market materials, and only about 9% of all plastic consumed is actually recycled into new products.

  • Compostability

    Products made from renewable resources can be readily composted back into soil and thus regrow into more plants that can be turned back into more products.
