We are enabling you how to change your way of thinking about investing in corporate promotional gifts.
We will show you how to tap into products that minimise your carbon footprint – through Eco friendly products that that are recycled, biodegradable and sustainable.
We are very lucky to live in a society that we have the power to change and adopt new ways of doing business.
Being in the corporate industry for more than 20 years I have come across seen first hand how most of the companies unintentionally invest in products that go to waste – products that aren’t helping our ECO systems.
Our aim is to introduce and educate my clients on alternative products that they can also feel good about.
- Renewable materials like bambo
- Organic products like organic cotton
- Recycled materials like recycled leather
- Clean energy like solar energy
- Fairtrade products and Fair Trade products (IFAT)
- Ethically sourced products
- Biodegradable materials
- Recycled packaging
Where do these products come from?
Our products come from recycled, biodegradable, sustainable and fair trade product. We have partnered with suppliers that believe in producing ethical products that are our environment.
Products made from BioGreen Plastic are fully recyclable. They can be recycled in the normal recycle stream right alongside all of the other plastic items.
When looking for “green” products, recyclability was a must for us. That immediately eliminated the corn-based plastics. Recycling is very important for the world and us. We encourage everyone to recycle.
However the sad truth is that surveys show that approximately 95% of plastic products are still thrown into landfills and dumps. That is why we use plastics that are environmentally friendly (biodegradable) even if the people using it fail to recycle.
Biodegradation is the secretion of acids, which break down the molecular structure and emit either Methane Gas or CO2 and leave behind highly nitrous soil. The entire mass must be broken down into these three things to be considered biodegradable. By this definition products made with BioGreen Plastic are biodegradable.
Degradable means the plastic is only broken down into smaller pieces and will never completely disappear, as is the case with starch based plastics. In many cases these products begin to degrade the moment they are made which leads to a shortened useful life. However this is not the case with BioGreen PlasticTM.
Products made with BioGreen Plastic do not begin biodegrading until they are placed into an active microbial environment such as landfills or compost piles. The bio-active compounds are activated In the presence of naturally occurring organisms found In both aerobic and anaerobic environments. The process takes from approximately 1-5 years.
The additive is completely organic, non-starch based and non-destructive to the environment. It is also non-toxic and actually helps the environment. This additive creates an accelerated biodegradable cycle that occurs in the common anaerobic environment you find in landfills or compost facilities. The final product left behind with BioGreen is Humus and Methane (Bio-Mass and Bio-gas). The humus can be used as new soil to grow plants in and the methane may be harvested into fuel.
Fairtrade labelling is based on a set of international standards guaranteeing producers in developing countries a fair and stable price, regardless of global market fluctuations. 3Fish is a proud licensee of Fairtrade Labelling Australia and New Zealand for a range of Fairtrade certified cotton garments, bags and headwear which can all be custom-made to your requirements.
Fairtrade Certified cotton brings many social and environmental benefits to the farmers involved in its cultivation including increased income, community development, organisation of co-ops, responsible and mostly organic farming, prohibition of genetically modified cotton seed and crop diversification.
Each of our Fairtrade certified supply partners must undergo a rigorous independent evaluation to guarantee their Fairtrade Certification.
