THE MOST ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY RAIN PONCHO
100% plastic-free. - 100% biodegradable. - 100% compostable.
After use, return it to the ground it came from.
The corn starch (MaterBi®) used to make our ponchos,
is GM-free and sourced and grown under strict EU regulations.
MaterBi® corn starch is a granulate obtained from Italy's Novamont, a pioneer in the field of bioplastics.
The bio-poncho has the seal of approval "OK Compost" from the Austrian TUV Institute, based on the standard DIN EN 13432.
With a unique CO2-neutral and methane-free decomposition, within 8 - 12 weeks (occurs slightly longer under home conditions). Degrades to naturally occurring, renewable and non-toxic organic materials.
The degradability in the ocean of 35 - 39 weeks has even been tested and confirmed within the EC ETV pilot programme.
The colours used for finishing, dyeing and printing are water-based, free of harmful substances, odourless and harmless to the environment.
The bio poncho is reusable for up to 2 years if stored in a warm and dry place away from direct sunlight after use.
After 2 years of storage, a natural, passive and slow decomposition will take place.
