ØPACKS are made from a strong, sustainable substrate containing Calcium Carbonate (approx. 80%) sourced from waste products and a small quantity (approx. 20%) of non-toxic, recycled resin (HDPE).
When limestone is quarried, a substantial amount of waste is generated. The Calcium Carbonate component of ØPACKS is sourced from this and ground down to a powder which is ten times finer than a human hair.
In this way what previously would have been discarded and rendered useless is converted into a new and truly revolutionary product, one far removed from its humble beginnings. This is a truly sustainable way to collect raw materials and does not result in any deforestation, use of food resources (or the land required to grow food), burning of fossil fuels or depletion of oil reserves.
