Conventional Synthetic Desiccants Contribute to Micro-Plastic

Toxic Micro-Plastics are Overtaking our Planet and Our Bodies! These Biodegardable Desiccants Reduce Landfill Pollution and Eliminate Plastics From the Global Supply Chain.


Large volumes of plastic enter the environment every year resulting as persistent mismanaged waste. Plastic pollution is perhaps the most pressing and critical environmental issue facing the planet. It is an environmental, wildlife, climate, humanBull Dozer Moving Landfill health and social justice issue that impacts everything including the water we drink and much of the foods we consume.


Plastic pollution is the accumulation of plastic objects and particles in the Earth's environment that adversely affects humans, wildlife and their habitat. 

Plastic products include every day, single-use items such as bottles, razors, toothbrushes, pill bottles, food wrappings, cups, deli containers, bags, microbeads used in cosmetics and moisture absorber packets known as desiccants.  While individual desiccant sachets may be small in size, the cumulative quantity of plastic packaging material is adding up very quickly.


The chemical structure of most plastics renders them resistant to many natural processes of degradation referred to as oxo-degradable. Oxo-degradable plastic products do not biodegrade. Instead it slowly breaks down into smaller and smaller pieces and eventually into fine toxic microplastics resulting in particles smaller than five millimeters in size. These fragments remain in the environment where it eventually makes its way into the food chain.

Environmental concern has led to new efforts and innovations in product development concentrated on developing sustainable alternatives in mold and moisture management within packaged goods traveling along supply chains.

Don’t Contribute to the Problem-Be Part of the Sustainable Solution
