Good Natured is a Canadian brand that offers better everyday products made from plants !     


Good for the home and great for the earth. Clean up with good natured™ products that will help you tidy up and look good doing it! Made using up to 90% annually renewable, plant-based materials and no BPAs, phthalates or other nasty stuff, these gems are first step toward kicking fossel fuels to the curb in style.



Good Natured products are manufactured from materials developed by Good Natured Products Inc. (former Solegear Bioplastic Technologies Inc.), creator of next-generation bioplastics since 2006, and in collaboration with world-renowned bioplastic producers.



Rewarded by several awards, its ambition is to fundamentally change the way plastics are designed. Research and constant development allow Good Natured Products to improve the quality of its bioplastics and increase its biobased content.







Products made of plants, not petroleum


The traditional plastics industry consumes about 8% of the world's annual non-renewable fossil fuel production. Alternatively, Good Natured Products bioplastics are made from the maximum possible amounts of renewable annually material, sometimes up to 100%.


In addition, we prove that biobased plastics do not provide inferior performance. Biosourced starches and sugars from agricultural resources can actually help improving the performance of any plastic, and the technology used to use easily accessible agricultural by-products is constantly improving. Bioplastics can also biodegrade much more easily, can be produced almost infinitely and even consume carbon as the plants that supply these raw materials grow.

Materials


Every year, the world produces 270 million metric tons of Chemicals of High Concern (CoHCs). including BPAs, phthalates, styrene… Unfortunately, the list goes on and on. Estimates show that up to 90% of them have been used in the petroleum-based plastics industry. The principles of Green Chemistry are designed to change this by encouraging the development of chemicals and processes that reduce or eliminate the use of hazardous materials.


At Good Natured Products, we use the principles of green chemistry to ensure that no chemicals of concern are introduced into our plastics. By eliminating chemicals that are untested or already known to cause harm to our health and the environment, we are creating safer products that can be part of a truly sustainable bio-economy.


Good Natured's bioplastic products are made from a variety of materials developed by Good Natured or its partners, such as Braskem (Brazil). These USDA Biopreferred or other certified bioplastics consist of unique blends of components and are biodegradable, recyclable or compostable and environmentally friendly. These materials are mostly derived from renewable plants each year and natural resources.




Life Cycle


Good Natured products and packaging are in compliance with food safety and environmental health regulations throughout their life cycles – from design, development and selection of material formulations through manufacturing, packaging, product end use and disposal.


At good naturedTM, we believe our planet and our people deserve products that are not only free from chemicals of concern, but also won’t leach hazardous chemicals during their manufacture, use or disposal.


Good Natured products are manufactured from the compostable, biodégradable ou biobased materials and can be recycled. In case of bio-PE recycling is possible existing installations used for conventional PE. Please, address to your local regulations to understand how the material can be collected.    


However, the Swiss facilities can not yet accept most of compostable and biodegradable products in their recycling or composting facilities, because there must be a specific process that allows to biodegrade or compost these products quickly that is not yet available in Switzerland. This also sometimes explains the absence of certification related to biodegradability or compostability because it is considered costly and useless at this stage of development of the sector.
