Aug. 22, 2011 - PRLog -- Plastics are both a fortune and a tragedy. Because they are light weight, affordable, and durable they have been adopted as a first choice in design. Unfortunately billions of tons of plastic waste have accumulated in landfills and nature. Worse, these durable plastics have been engineered to remain on our Earth for 500 -1000 years or longer…until now. The future of plastics has landed in South Africa.

A bold, cutting edge technology has been engineered to reduce the millions of tons of discarded plastics accumulating in South Africa’s landfills and precious natural environments. Together, ENSO Plastics and their exclusive South African Distribution partner, Wild Water Bottling and Distribution are bringing long awaited environmental improvements to the plastic industry.

ENSO Plastics™ is an organic biodegradable blend- technology that is added during the plastic manufacturing process. Products using the ENSO additive are biodegradable in anaerobic (landfill) environments and result in the exact same byproducts of biodegradation as an apple core or banana peel. Polymers using the ENSO additive are recyclable and retain the same SPI resin code and base polymer throughout manufacturing, use and recycling, without any negative effects on the host resin.

“ENSO plastics are not corn-plastics or oxodegradable plastics, both of which have serious problems with processability, shelf-life and stability in warm climates. Only when placed into a waste environment where there are microorganisms breaking down other organic material will the ENSO additive come into play.”

“As the exclusive distributor of ENSO products in South Africa we are committed to bringing easily-incorporated technologies which will minimize humankind’s impact on our environment. By bringing the ENSO technology to South Africa, we have sparked economic development and youth job opportunity in our effort to reach sustainability. Companies such as Earth Water International, House of Juice and Wild Water, have set the high standard of using the ENSO additive in their product packaging, while educating local manufacturers and consumers on the importance of getting involved in saving our global village.”
