I’m green™ Polyethylene
I'm green™ Polyethylene is a plastic produced from sugarcane, a renewable raw material, while the traditional polyethylene uses fossil sourced raw materials such as oil or natural gas. For this reason, I'm green™ Polyethylene captures and fixes CO2 from the atmosphere during its production, helping to reduce greenhouse gases emission.
