March 16, 2021 — (Vancouver, BC) good natured Products Inc. (“good natured®”) (TSX-V: GDNP), a North American leader in earth-friendly plant-based products, is pleased to announce today that it has launched food safe Bio-PET, a game-changing thermoformed packaging material designed to successfully co-mingle in the recycling stream with petroleum-based packaging. good natured® Bio-PET material will be used to make packaging and extruded rollstock sheet that contains 20-30% plant-based content, up to 50% recycled content and is readily accepted in curbside recycling programs across both Canada and the US.
Following the Company’s announcement in Spring 2020 that it expanded its plant-based materials to include 3 ingredient families: Fiber, Bioplastics and Biodegradables, this Bio-PET material is part of the Company’s Bioplastics portfolio. good natured® Bioplastics are chemically equivalent to petroleum-based polymers, such as PET #1 and HDPE #2 that are commonly used in plastic packaging applications. Bio-PET processes, forms and performs identically to PET and can be fully mixed with traditional PET in recycling streams. This new material helps businesses reduce their reliance on fossil fuels without having to consider any changes to their end-of-life or recycling programs.
Until now, many retailers, product manufacturers and food producers with sustainable packaging mandates have been limited to choice between petroleum-based, curbside recyclable and plant-based compostable options. good natured® Bio-PET is food safe and provides an additional choice to businesses to continue using curbside recyclable packaging while increasing their use of renewable materials.
“We’re very happy to announce that we have added Bio-PET to our growing assortment of plant-based products, another critical step in our mission to become North America’s leading earth-friendly product company”said Paul Antoniadis, CEO of good natured®. “By securing the North American supply of Bio-PET for thermoformed packaging, we continue to make it easy and affordable by providing the market with the widest possible choice of earth-friendly materials to begin their transition to sustainable plant-based packaging,”
