Question about the bottle
The BE O Bottle is modular, which means that you can disassemble it into several parts. This way you can easily clean it. You may also clean the bottle with a dishwashing brush.
Good question! We can talk about this for hours, but in short it means this:
The BE O Bottle is a climate positive bottle. Here’s why: the BE O Bottle is made from sugar cane, a fast growing crop takes up a lot of CO2. So much that more net CO2 is absorbed than is emitted during production and shipping. After harvesting, the sugar cane is processed into cane sugar and a residual product is released. This residual flow is used to make bioplastic. In this way we also prevent parts of the plant from being wasted.
Bonus for the climate: we plant a tree for every bottle sold through Trees for the Future.
The BE O bottle is made from a minimum of 94% bioplastic from Brazilian sugarcane. The producer of the material keeps a margin of 6%, this is because they produce also “oilplastic” in the same factory. You can compare it with food that writes on the package that there may be remnants of nuts or milk, because these products are also made in the same factory. Together with the producer of the material we are researching how we could guarantee 100% bioplastic in the future. List of all materials:
- Bottle and cap: BIO-HDPE (BIO-High Density Polyethene)
- Middle part ring: BIO-TPE (BIO-Thermoplastic Elastomer)
- Cap ring: BIO-TPE (BIO-Thermoplastic Elastomer)
- Natural pigments: residual sea shells (white bottle) and charcoal (black bottle)
Good question! Before bioplastic can be made from sugar cane, the cane has already provided many other products. From the first two pressings juice is created that you can turn in to cane sugar. From the thrid and fourth presses bioethanol can be made. And that material is the basis for our bioplastic.
Yes. The bottle is 100% recyclable, you can dispose the bottle with other old plastic. But to be honest, we hope you will enjoy your bottle for the rest of your life! well, maybe not that long but in any case for a while 🙂
Absolutely. The BE O bottle is free of BPA and other toxic substances. Bisphenol A is a plasticizer that can dissolve and end up in the food chain, we definitely do not want that. Grose.
Yes! The producer of the material has a
Sure. With printed water bottles made from bioplastic, your organization shows that it takes the transition to the new, good plastic seriously. We print the bottle from 50 pieces and more. Your logo/name/image is printed on the cap and be printed with up to 5 colors.
Ideas and remarks
That is unfortunate to hear. We are happy to help you find a suitable solution. Please
