Today we celebrate World Environment Day.
This year, the theme for World Environment Day 2023 is #BeatPlasticPollution. It aims to highlight the urgent need to tackle plastic pollution and find sustainable solutions in reducing plastic waste and promoting a circular economy.
Plastic pollution is a global problem. The world produces about 400 million tons of plastic waste a year. Many of the materials used to replace plastics actually have a much higher carbon footprint than plastics themselves. With the largest share of carbon footprint coming from the primary material, the use of naturally occurring and low carbon footprint materials such as upcycled wood could be a game-changer in the alternatives to plastics markets.
At Innomost we believe in circular economy and offer a sustainable alternative to plastics. We use forest industry side streams as raw material and upcycle it to high value ingredients that can replace micro plastics and other fossil-based ingredients in various industries. The products are 100% natural and biodegradable, and have carbon footprint close to zero, according to the primary LCA-calculations. Our mission is to help our customers to have more environmentally friendly solutions by replacing fossil-based ingredients with a sustainable and ethical choice. Together we can make a positive impact for a more sustainable world.
Happy World Environment Day 2023!
