The advent of fast-food chains all around the world spawned the proliferation of every day items like tableware and other table utensils that are made out of petrochemical-based plastics that can be used while dining and then thrown away that easily.
Most of the time, many people even buy these plastic utensils from the supermarket, thinking that they don’t have to worry about washing them since they’d easily end up in the waste basket. Simply throwing away plastic utensils like spoons, forks, knives, drinking glass is oh-so convenient, but have you ever realized the harm it can do to the environment, especially since many of those items don’t break down since they are non-biodegradable?
Focusing on research and development of natural waste plant-based materials to replace petrochem-based plastics, JuTian Cleantech Co. Ltd. came up with tableware such as spoons and forks, straws, drinking tumblers and other lifestyle accessories that are not only sturdy and light but are also completely compostable and biodegradable that it won’t hurt the environment.
Their products are made out of renewable materials and are naturally compostable such as leftover plant fiber that would have been thrown away. These agricultural by-products come from either bamboo fiber, sugarcane pulp or “bagasse,” or even coffee grounds, then sun-dried, chopped and shredded into powder then modified to make it compostable and completely biodegradable. JuTian products are guaranteed to break down in a backyard in just 12 months.
JuTian, which established the “100% ZHI (/Plant/) brand in 2018, with “reuse of waste” as its core brand value, specializes in environment-friendly technologies that can develop compostable products so that the Earth’s limited resources can be recycled and sustained. This helps create a friendly economic and industrial system while implementing the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), particularly SDG 12 (“Sustainable Consumption and Production”) and SDG 13 (“Climate Action”) to create carbon-reduced and sustainable life for everyone.
With JuTian, creating better alternatives to plastic ware for lifestyle use is no mean feat, but when the environment is talking because it needs to be taken care of by reducing—or removing—harmful plastic wastes, JuTian listened, and they listened very well.
