DESCRIPTION

desintegra.me offers an alternative to the indestructible material - plastic - mostly used for packaging, by using an organic material to create eco-friendly packaging that can easily break down. According to the designer, the material only includes natural matter, including the dyes used to colour it, which are extracted from the skins of fruits and vegetable such as blueberries, purple cabbage, beetroot and carrot. The basic mixture is made up of a polymer, a plasticiser and an additive, with the amounts of each ingredient varying depending on the desired consistency of the final product. This versatility means that it has the potential to generate many different types of bioplastics – some more rigid and others more flexible. The bioplastic packaging is especially suited to containing dry food products. It is best sealed with heat rather than glue in a bid make the end result as natural as possible.
