Additives make polymers into plastics: lightweight, durable and versatile. Heavy metals, flame retardants, phthalates, BTEX’s ,bisphenols, and fluorinated compounds – are directly associated with plastics production. These compounds can cause cancer, neurological disorders, infertility and impotence.
No one is protected from chemical leachate. phthalate exposure is linked to early death, particularly due to heart disease and causes 91,000 to 107,000 premature deaths a year among people ages 55 to 64 in the US alone. BPA is directly linked with childhood obesity and heart disease
We study plastic degradation. We have found something very disturbing: even in cases where toxic chemicals were banned, they were still leaching into products that we get into contact with every day. The data indicates that most coffees that we drink, take away food that we eat and shampoo that we use might not be safe. We have started asking questions and decided to fight this danger.
We are a start-up founded by scientists dedicated to ensuring our safety from toxic chemicals. We operate based on a main mission: Make Plastics Safe! The first step to achieve this is providing safe alternatives for everyday use.
