Sustainable entrepreneurship is an important aspect within the policy of Groener Evenement. That is why we completely reprocess the waste generated during production.
We even go a step further with our ECO-COINS ™, a biodegradable consumption coin.
These environmentally friendly coins are made from a bioplastic based on starch. We obtain this starch from potato peels from the French fries processing industry. In other words, these coins are made with natural and renewable resources. The ECO coins ™ are 100% biodegradable in nature.
If the ECO-coins ™ end up in nature and are exposed to air, moisture, sunlight and bacteria for months, the ecological coins will break down completely. The tokens will be reduced to CO2, water and biomass, in short natural fertilizers for plants. In the absence of one of these four conditions, the tokens will not perish. Attention! For the maintenance of our ecological tokens, we recommend cleaning the coins with a slightly damp cloth. Due to their degradable properties, contact with water and washing-up liquid is expressly not recommended.
The material that we use for our ECO coins ™ meets the European standards regarding biodegradation (EN13432). In addition, our biodegradable coin is patented.
