McClellan Mountain Spring Water just sent me their video showcasing their earth friendly ENSO bottles!
“McClellan Mountain Spring Water utilizes PET plastic bottles with a specially formulated additive that makes the bottle 100% biodegradable. This ENSO additive allows the bottles to maintain the same physical properties (shelf life, texture, clarity, appearance, etc) as traditional PET plastic bottles, however once these bottles are placed in a landfill , ocean, stream or other outdoor location, the bottle starts to breakdown in 250 days. At the end of 5 years, the biodegradable bottle returns to the environment a biogases and inert humus. In landfill disposal, our bottles promote the use of biogases, for use in creating clean energy.”
You might be thinking, Wow this ENSO plastic product not only sounds green but it actually is green! Biodegradable and Recyclable, you will no longer experience guilt because you cannot recycle and your effort to be green has failed because ENSO plastics WILL biodegrade. It is just so simple and natural, the way things should be. The way all plastic products should be.
But what once seemed like an easy decision like running into the store and grabbing the first water bottle you see, now comes with options and requires a second thought. That thought being, which one of these bottles offers the best environmental benefits? The answer is ENSO. Make sure to check for our logo, if it’s not there read the labeling to be sure you’re choosing a Naturally Biodegradable bottle that is also Recyclable. (Not all brands choose to include our logo in their marketing strategy)
For those wanting to make decisions that will nurture our Earth I have compiled a list of some of the brands that use ENSO plastic (not all inclusive). Next time you are in a store look for these brands ! Some of these you probably see quite often and had no idea they were made with ENSO, right? Well now you know, so make the wiser more informed decision and choose products that use ENSO every chance you get. The more consumers are aware and wanting to choose the ENSO option, the more manufacturers will be willing to make a change and go ENSO as well. Lets take control of our waste and get this world on the right track.
