Why Willow's Choice
Willow's Choice thoughtful products are made from sugarcane bagasse which is a renewable source that actually removes carbon from our atmosphere.
Just like trees, as sugarcane grows it takes carbon out of the atmosphere.
The sugarcane bagasse waste is used as fertiliser by local farmers and also used for generating bio-electricity in the factory that makes our raw material, making the production process even more sustainable.
On top of that, our products have no impact on food supply, as the material is made from bagasse (sugarcane waste).
In addition to its eco credentials, our products have high strength, are durable and have better quality than less sustainable, non-renewable fossil based plastic products.
Willow's Choice is made from sugarcane bagasse and can be recycled normally.
However, if your local council choose to incinerate our products rather than recycle, it is worth mentioning that the captured carbon dioxide would be released back into the atmosphere thus creating a carbon positive effect.
Being carbon positive means that for every 200,000 tonnes of sugarcane plastic produced, 920,000 tonnes of CO2 is avoided, which is equivalent to the emissions of 1 million motor vehicles.
