Our Consumption and Environmental Dilemma Our Consumption and Environmental Dilemma

Plastic has greatly influenced our modern lives, offering affordability, food protection, lightweight convenience, and more. However, its widespread use also leads to environmental pollution, contaminating soil, waterways, and food supplies, posing risks to our health.*

Key Challenges

Key Challenges

Plastic requires centuries to fully decompose: Initially fragments into harmful microplastics for a long while, seriously threatening our environment and health before able to be biodegraded by bio-organism.

The problem can only get bigger until we solve it: Each year, millions of tons of plastic enter the ocean due to human actions and poor waste management. This amount is projected to increase as global plastic usage rises.

Sustainable plastic use involves carefully considering its entire life cycle: where the material comes from, how it's made, and what happens to it when we're done. We can't tackle plastic pollution by emitting more carbon emissions, which only makes climate change worse.

Less Ego More Eco is needed; No single “R” or solution is adequate to solve this. Local context and holistic approach matter in creating technically and economically viable as well as scalable solutions. Collaboration is critical.

Our Dream for the (Near) Future

We imagine a flourishing world and prosperous people without harmful plastics. Where Consumers are thoughtful in their consumption, voting with their wallet and behavior on sustainable products and packaging. Where Innovative Sustainable Materials that meet the functionalities of plastic while having none of the negative impact are used by the most loved and progressive Brands. Where Circularity happens in a truly economically viable way instead of conveniently exporting the negative impact elsewhere. Nature and people live harmoniously for generations to come.
Commonly Used Approach is Far from Enough, Each Still Has Huge Homework Commonly Used Approach is Far from Enough, Each Still Has Huge Homework
Reduce

Benefit:
Using fewer items and more readily biodegrade materials like paper can reduce plastic waste pollution.

Limitations:
Some items need plastic-like functionalities such as waterproof, good oxygen barrier (prolong food life). We also need to avoid cutting more trees (for paper) to mitigate climate impact.

Reuse

Benefit:
Reusing, refilling, and/or reconstituting the items for different functions can reduce virgin plastic usage.

Limitation:
Many items need to be hygienic therefore not suitable for Reuse. The infrastructure, carbon footprint, water, energy required to recollect, wash, reuse, can be prohibitive.

Recycle

Benefit:
Recycling the plastic waste into recycled resins to be made into other products can reduce waste and virgin plastic.

Limitation:
Plastic items that are too small, contaminated, flexible films, multi-layer, etc. often are not economically viable for recycling. Massive water usage during the process produce and leak microplastics if not treated properly.

Return to Earth is the critical missing piece, that offers Biodegradable and Bio-based solutions to solve both plastic waste pollution and climate crises:

  • Biodegradable End-of-life: Reduce the accumulation of plastic in landfills (and if accidentally leak to nature). Safely speed up the material's bio-assimilation by nature.
  • Bio-based Source: Renewable, locally-sourced to shift reliance on fossil fuels, reducing carbon footprint.

The Return to Earth, material solutions is suitable for replacing plastic items that are too small and contaminated, neither suitable for reuse nor economically viable for recycling. For those real unsalvageable "plastic waste". For post-consumer items that are net negative in terms of energy, water, time, money, to try and save.
