Our Sugarcane fibre products are made from bagasse, the pulp material remaining after the extraction of the sugar-bearing juice from sugarcane. This fibre by-product can be turned into products normally made from plastic or paper and avoids the pollution from the normal burning of sugarcane pulp after juice extraction. Sugarcane is a readily renewable resource
These products have no plastic or wax coating and are a far superior alternative to polystyrene, plastic and paper products.
The sugarcane fibre products are fully compostable. These products will usually compost within 28 days in a commercial composting facility and 90 days in a home composting system.

BENEFITS OF SUGARCANE
• Renewable. Sugarcane polyethylene replaces 30 percent or more of the petroleum that would otherwise be used to manufacture the plastic.
• Lower carbon footprint. Each metric ton of bio – polyethylene produced avoids the emission of 2 to 2.5 metric tons of carbon dioxide on a life cycle basis.
