MixedEco.com was created by two adolescents in 2019. We've set MixedEco.com up after we came to the realization how easily we have been a big part of the problem with damaging our environment by using the products in our life.
We already made some efforts to decrease our waste by using reusable bottles but realized that although this was a lot better than single use, the materials were still non-biodegradable.
The latter is still a problem because eventually it will end up in landfill or in the ocean, as recycling is difficult at the end of its lifecycle. That?s when we decided we wanted to start looking for other more eco-friendly options.
So after we did our research, we came across BPA free plastic, bamboo and wheat straw as materials. These materials are not only durable but also biodegradable, so it is our mission to get these materials more widely used.
Our goal is to replace products made of plastic by products made of more sustainable materials and encourage other people to do the exact same thing!
How can we make the world a better place?
We all need to use less damaging products in our daily life, from single use coffee cups to plastic bags. Billions of tonnes of waste is polluting our earth so the more we can use sustainable or biodegradable products the less harm we cause. We would like to see habits change and everyone feeling that they can do there part without having to make too much effort.
What We Offer?
We offer an alternative to plastic and other harmful materials used in everyday life by having products made from rice husk, wheat straw or other more sustainable materials. Rice husk is an agricultural waste by-product which instead of causing more pollution by burning and releasing harmful substances in the air is instead utilised to make a natural product. The products are durable and can be reused for years but when eventually it completes its life cycle and ends up somewhere on the planet it is easily biodegraded. The material will biodegrade anywhere from 9 months to 3 years depending on the conditions. There are no unnatural dyes, colourants or chemicals in our products.
