The government advocates protecting the environment and reducing the use of plastic products. In the deodorant packaging industry, deodorant bottle suppliers put the improvement of plastic deodorant containers and the search for new materials to replace plastics as the top priority.
The sustainable development of the environment is our economic goal. We all know that recyclable, degradable and compostable materials are environmentally friendly, and they are also issues that we need to consider when producing deodorant containers. So what's the difference between them?
What does recycling mean?
Recyclable refers to domestic wastes that are suitable for recycling and resource utilization. The first purpose of recycling is to avoid "the limit of growth" from the technical level; The second is to increase the overall life of material utilization and reduce the resource pressure; The third is to reduce the dependence on the international raw material market. In deodorant packaging, PCR material is a lot of recyclable materials used to replace plastics, and it has been widely used.
What does it mean to be biodegradable?
Under natural conditions or artificial control, materials can be decomposed and converted into small molecular substances under the action of biological life activities. Due to the extremely diverse metabolic types and variability of organisms, microorganisms that can degrade the previously thought non-degradable organic matter have also been found, so it is possible to turn the non-degradable organic matter into biodegradable. Paper deodorant tubes are made of paper material, which is 100% biodegradable and will not pollute the environment.
But what does compost mean?
Compostable refers to the ability of materials to be biodegraded during composting. Material includes paper, plastic, etc. If it claims to have the composting ability, it must be stated that the material is biodegradable and disintegrated in the composting system (as shown in the standard test method), and it is completely biodegradable in the final use of composting. Compost must comply with relevant quality standards. Quality standards such as low heavy metal content, no biotoxicity and no obvious distinguishable residues. Paper deodorant tubes are also compostable materials, which can be turned into sanitary and odorless organic fertilizers, which are beneficial to the environment.
Which one is most suitable for the environment?
Recyclable, biodegradable and compostable packaging, which one is most suitable for the environment? Compostable packaging, of course. Compost packaging not only does not need to be buried and incinerated but also the generated compost will return organic matter to the soil. Compost packaging is recyclable and available to the market. Not only is it no longer "garbage," but also has considerable economic value.
