The Greenest Bottles

100% Biodegradable and Recyclable

Blue_Bottle_500ml_1_-215x332.jpgThe bottles that we use at Texas Rain are the greenest bottles in the entire world. You can recycle them, and they will get made into wonderful new bottles or other plastic items. Or, if you throw them away, they will turn into dirt in 2 to 5 years depending on the microbial activity of the landfill as they are plastic that microbes just love to eat.

Claim: Landfill Biodegradable  Qualifier: Testing of bottles show 32.7% biodegradation in 10 months.

RecyclePhotoWeb.gifIsn't that just amazing. You don't have to feel guilty when you need to throw the bottle in the trash. No more plastic trash that hangs around for up to 1000 years. A perfect bottle for every lifestyle. Some bottles have low shelf life ( a few months) but can be biodegradable. Other bottles can be biodegradable but not recyclable. Our bottles are 100% biodegradable and recyclable with a very long shelf life If you would like to learn more about our ENSO bottles, and how they stack up against the competition, please read the following paper.

Making Plastics Biodegradable

In an effort to help reduce the millions of tons of discarded plastics accumulating in our world’s landfills, ENSO Plastics™, brings biodegradable technology to the plastic packaging industry. ENSO Plastics™ is dedicated to providing packaging solutions to customers seeking a biodegradable alternative.

ENSO accelerates the natural biodegradation of plastics in biologically active landfills and anaerobic digesters as validated by independent certified laboratories using ASTM International test methods (ASTM D5526 & ASTM D5511).

ENSO Plastics are not Oxo biodegradable or PLA (corn based) plastics. Traditional plastics made with ENSO biodegrade in anaerobic (landfill) environments, breaking down through microbial action into biogases and inert humus; leaving behind no harmful materials. Plastics utilizing ENSO are also fully recyclable and can be mixed into existing recycling streams without resulting in contamination.

*Independent 3rd party testing has shown up to 24.7% biodegradation within 160 days in optimized conditions. Actual rate of biodegradation will vary dependent upon environmental conditions and the biological activity of microorganisms surrounding the plastic.
