At Okeanos, we pride ourselves on being honest. Yes, there is still a small amount of plastic resin in products using Made From Stone’s proprietary compounds. At our Okeanos Innovation Center, we are working toward more sustainable solutions, including a fully natural binder.
In the meantime, the unfortunate truth is that only 9% of recyclable items are actually recycled, and less than 5% of compostable items are actually composted. Made From Stone is designed to cause less environmental impact where most of these products actually wind up––landfills, incinerators, or the open environment. Made From Stone technology enables manufacturers and brands to reduce the environmental impact of their products before they get into the hands of consumers, eliminating a significant portion of the plastic, and dramatically reducing the product’s CO2 footprint.
