Head and feet on sustainability
Biodegredable plant-based plasticizers:
A green flip flops inovation.
More and more, society demands ecologically correct raw materials, a demand that has also been ours forever, because sustainability is in Green Flip Flops’ DNA. That’s what led us on a quest for an alternative to primary plasticizers, a research that has resulted in flip-flops made from 100% renewable, high percentage of biodegradability plasticizers, prepared from plant-based oils, which are not derived from petroleum.
Green Flip Flops:
In addition to plant-based origin plasticizers, Green Flip Flops is also made of PVC resin, a plastic of lower presence in weight in urban waste and it is not (not 100%) originated from petroleum. The PVC resin is still more easily identified for recycling than the others, thanks to the presence of chlorine in its formula, which in turn is obtained from sea salt. That is, it is the environment, once again, showing the right path to sustainability.
Our greatest enemy
The Green Flip Flops composition does not contain phthalates, a chemical compound proven to be harmful to human health and constantly used as additives to make the plastic more malleable. Phthalates can cause damage to the liver, kidneys and lungs, and are considered a probable carcinogen. If our mission is to preserve the planet, it is our duty to preserve the health of the species that inhabit it.
