100% Bio-degradable Christmas tree Netting is here...........
We are immensely proud and excited to provide the first truly eco-friendly tree netting to the Christmas tree market. VacuBioNet® is made from PLA (Polylactic acid) polyester yarn which is typically sourced from renewable plant resources such as fermented corn starch, sugar cane, sugar beet pulp or cassava. It is a 100% natural polymer requiring 65% less energy and emits 75% less harmful greenhouse gasses in production than the petroleum-based plastics it is designed to replace.
PLA will naturally break down by hydrolysis, thermal and photo-degradation, returning to the earth without causing damage. It is compostable in commercial composting plants and completely bio-degradable. In laboratory conditions, PLA is fully recyclable, breaking down to monomers which can be re-manufactured into new PLA: truly ‘Cradle to Cradle’ recycling.
This technology is so new that this form of recycling is not currently commercially available. What's more, our VacuBioNet® has the same strength and resilience and will work in exactly the same way as our standard LZ Netting. Do note that it must be stored between -10°C and +40°C out of direct sunlight and used within two seasons.
Warning! Our VacuBioNet® is a unique product and must not be confused with other netting products manufactured from OXO-degradable plastic. OXO plastics are merely conventional plastics derived from petrochemicals with added amounts of metal salts which enhance the break-down of the plastic into shorter polymer chains and eventually to micro-plastics, which remain in - and potentially harm - the environment and are unsuitable for recycling and composting.
