WHY WE CREATED 100BIO™ COMPOSTABLE PRODUCTS

 

The world produces over 2.6 trillion pounds of trash each year.

  • It is estimated that in developed countries, the average person produces 2.6 pounds of trash a day.
  • About 1/3 of an average dump is made of packaging material (mostly plastic).
  • Out of every $10 spent buying things, $1 (10%) goes for packaging that is thrown away. 
  • In the Los Angeles area alone, 10 metric tons of plastic fragments—like grocery bags are carried into the Pacific Ocean every day.
