ENSO Biodegradable Bottles: Better for California, Better for the Environment

MESA, Arizona, Oct. 28 - /EWire/ -- In the face of what most would call overwhelming odds, an environmental company in Arizona has established itself as the leader in biodegradable plastics. Unfortunately, the waters were muddied when California recently filed a lawsuit to forbid the labeling of ENSO products as biodegradable, despite scientific proof of biodegradation by internationally recognized testing. The general public, legislators and the media continue to be confused about biodegradable plastics. Danny Clark, President of ENSO, states, “Our industry is young, and we are still improving standards and dispelling false beliefs. Our products perform as we claim, and we have the data to prove it. The situation in California is a lack of education and misunderstanding new technologies; this is not an issue of false claims. We will take this opportunity to bring legislators up to speed with ENSO technologies and the value they bring to the environment.” “The citizens of California and the environment deserve better,” stated Del Andrus, VP of ENSO. “History is full of examples where science has provided the facts to overcome false beliefs, a principle that ENSO will continue through the pioneering of new information, technology and education.” At ENSO, we stand behind our claims and our mission to solve the world’s plastic pollution. Every one of us has contributed to this global problem, and it will take each of us, working together, to solve it. Companies like AQUAMANTRA and Balance should be recognized for rising above status quo and implementing environmentally sound solutions. We do not claim that biodegradability is a silver bullet, but it is a huge step in the right direction. Consumers should be educated on the true impact of the products they are buying and have the opportunity to take that step.

Hi Gwyn :-) There are compostible bags out there slplificaecy designed for your compost kitchen bucket - you take the scraps, bag and all out to your compost bin or worm farm. So yes, provided the bags are fully compostible like the cornstarch bags I provided the link to at Biome (and they are available elsewhere), they can go in the worm farm! I can definitely relate to your pyrex investments too :-) Since I\\\'ve been cooking from scratch and trying to conserve energy by cooking more than one dish at a time in the oven, I have needed to expand my freezerware by about ten-fold, LOL. And yep, although the lids are plastic, with care, they should last a long time.

Congratulations. One thing to keep in mind in switching to biodegradable plates, cups, cutlery, etc is to ensure that you have a waste management system in place for this new refuse.Compostables are vastly superior to plastic and virgin-timber based materials for lots of reasons, not the least of which being that they are produce from renewable raw materials.The problem is that you have to have a system that segregates them from non-compostable material and ensures that they are actually composted. If your university is willing to invest in (or has) the infrastructure, you could probably do it all on site and solve lawn and leaf waste at the same time. The university could even sell finished compost to the local community to help offset costs and provide a benefit to local agriculture.This could be an opportunity for hands-on student learning for an Ag or Civil Engineering program.Biodegradable materials won't degrade in landfills. They need to be composted in order to realize the ecological benefit. I think a university dining hall may be an ideal setting, since the food waste going into the garbage cans is already compostable and if you switch to all compostable plates, cups and utensils, and line the garbage cans with compostable bags, the whole bin is available for the process.
