Canadian Gold Beverages (www.canadiangoldbeverages.com), a leading Canadian manufacturer of bottled water and KBev, Inc. (www.ultibio.com) ( www.aquatise.com )are pleased to announce their joint roll out of a new “Green Initiative” with BioSMART Ltd (www.biosmartltd.com ). This initiative focuses on adding BioSmart’s revolutionary Bi-X007 additive to PET water bottles making them fully biodegradable and recycle-friendly.
Canadian Gold Beverages and KBev, Inc. are the first North American companies to utilize the revolutionary Bi-X007 PET additive, making Canadian Gold Beverages bottles for water and flavored waters not only recyclable, but fully biodegradable when disposed in landfill. Finished products are now available throughout North America in a variety of package sizes with multiple shipping locations.
Canadian Gold Beverages and KBev, Inc. are committed to reducing their packaging footprint and have implemented a strategy of not only introducing a biodegradable water bottle but also using a new biodegradable shrink film for the case packs; degradable corrugated pads/trays and biodegradable pallet wrap. This leading edge technology will move Canadian Gold Beverages and KBev, Inc. into the forefront of conservation and provide their customers with product that is environmentally friendly and responsible.
This new technology for the PET industry does not rely on composting and does not interfere with the recycle chain. It does fully breakdown and biodegrade in a landfill between 14 -24 months. The caps, ring, label, bottles and packaging are all produced with the BioSmart additive giving the consumer a totally “Green Package”. Although Canadian Gold Beverages, KBev, Inc. and BioSmart continue to encourage consumers to recycle, there is now an alternative solution for the percentage of PET products that get thrown in a landfill or littered.
*Every year we make enough plastic film to shrink-wrap Texas.
( NEW: Now Biodegradable )
*Americans go through 2.5 million plastic bottles every year.
( NEW: Now recycle friendly and biodegradable)
*26 recycled PET bottles equals a polyester suit. 5 recycled PET bottles make enough fiberfill to stuff a ski jacket.
( NEW: Does not interfere with the recycle chain or re-use of recycle materials)
*In 1988 we used 2 billion pounds of HDPE just to make bottles for household products. That’s about the weight of 90,000 Honda Civics.
(New: BioSmart additive is not only food grade safe, but available for use in many types of plastics)
*If every American household recycled just one out of every ten HDPE bottles they used, we’d keep 200 million pounds of the plastic out of landfills every year. www.oberlin.edu/recycle/facts.html
In 2006, Americans drank about 167 bottles of water each but only recycled an average of 23 percent. That leaves 38 billion water bottles in landfills. www.earth911.com
