Our Green Mission
Envy’s mission is to carry out our business operations in a way which manages, minimises and continually reduces our adverse environmental impacts and demonstrates pollution prevention. Our on-going ambition is to actively reduce our carbon footprint.
It is said that by 2050, there will be more plastic, by weight, than fish in the sea. To help the planet and to take the next step in our mission ENVY will now only use NONPLASTICSTRAWs.
NONPLASTICSTRAWs are a bio-based plastic drinking straw alternative. They feel, taste, sip just like plastic, but they are NOT ANOTHER PLASTIC STRAW, and they do not cost the earth.
SUSTAINABLE AND ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY
NONPLASTICSTRAWs are made from a renewable plant-based material created from sustainable resources, such as sugar cane, corn-starch or yam. The key words here are renewable and sustainable. This means these resources can be replaced or replenished in the same or less time it takes to use up the supply. For the health and future of the planet, we want to be using more (if not mostly/ all) renewable and sustainable resources.
Using this bio-based alternative uses 65% less energy, and releases between 30-80% less toxic emissions than plastic!
Unlike their paper counterparts , NONPLASTICSTRAWs are extraordinarily robust, and will hold their shape and strength for the entire hydration duration!
100% BIODEGRADABLE AND COMPOSTABLE
NONPLASTICSTRAWs are 100% biodegradable and compostable in industrial composting facilities, where they will fully degrade with other compostable materials into humus (not hummus ;)) in just 12 weeks!! This organic matter can then be put back into the system and used by farmers to fertilise plants and crops.
As a company ENVY are an Albert Affiliate (full info here) and we are always striving to be as environmentally compliant as possible.
