Application News Revolutionary dog plush toy line with starch based stuffing The Good Stuffing Company announced the launch of its first line of plush dog toys, which will be exclusively available at Petco and through the end of the year. What makes the Good Stuffing offerings unique is that, unlike almost any other canine plush toy that is filled with poly-fill, the Good Stuffing line is filled with SafeFill Stuffing. SafeFill Stuffing is a proprietary alternative fill made from natural plant starch. If a dog tears open a plush toy filled with poly-fill, there is a real choking hazard. Conversely, the SafeFill Stuffing will dissolve harmlessly in the dog’s mouth like cotton candy does in people. While the principle ingredient used in the manufacturing of poly-fill is ethylene, which is derived from petroleum, SafeFill Stuffing is derived from natural plant starch. SafeFill Stuffing, manufactured without any crude oil component or toxic byproducts, is eco-friendly, biodegradable, sustainable, fire-resistant, and hypoallergenic. The line at Petco is launching with over two-dozen fun and attractive animals for all sized dogs MT Natural Farm pet food packaging Braskem and Natural Farm, a leading provider of 100% natural pet food based in Atlanta, recently announced the adoption of Braskem’s I’m green TM Polyethylene (PE) bioplastic for the consumer packaging of its Natural Farm’s TM line of highquality pet food products. Marcus Maximo, Founder and CEO of Natural Farm stated, “Natural Farm was founded on a passion for dogs and the love we share with our pets. We’re delighted that as well as preparing the highest quality dog treats, we’re equally focused on being responsible environmental stewards. We’re excited to have found the perfect partner with Braskem and its bio-PE allowing Natural Farm so ensure we’re being socially responsible with our packaging.” Natural Farm is one of the few companies in the pet retail space who own and operate their own facility and The Natural Farm commitment stretches from its fields to its packaging, consistently supporting its people and the local communities where they live and operate. This spirit of “Care, Quality, and Transparency” extends to everything Natural Farm creates through its 360 Degree Plan towards sustainability. This includes integrating 51% bio-based, fossil fuel-free and fully recyclable, I’m greenT Polyethylene (PE) bioplastic into its packaging. Natural Farm also donates a portion of its proceeds to helping animals in local community shelters. MT Cushion for artificial turf Braskem and ProdTek, a product development and manufacturing company serving the artificial turf, flooring and textile industries with innovative solutions announced the integration of Braskem’s biobased Polyethylene in ProdTek’s new Turf Cushion line of turf underlay products. ProdTek’s revolutionary new Turf Cushion is installed under artificial turf for a wide range of applications including play grounds, play areas, sports fields, roof tops, indoor play areas and other areas where shock attenuation is critical for users. The Turf Cushion underlay is composed of recycled polyethylene and Eco Raw, which utilizes Braskem’s bio- PE and qualifies for High Recycled Content (HRC) status. In utilizing Braskem’s bio-PE as a renewable alternative to petroleum based polyethylene, ProdTek’s Turf Cushion can make a significant contribution to reducing the level of greenhouse gas emissions in the product value creation chain John Karr, President at ProdTek, stated, “We feel very good about our new Turf Cushion Pad. Not only is it carbon neutral and 100 % recyclable, it provides enhanced safety for children in playground environments and is economically advantageous for turf installation companies. We feel like we have a product that creates value for everyone and serves society as well.” MT bioplastics MAGAZINE [05/19] Vol. 14 39
