The most important material in the Becothings range is plastic replacement made from natural plant fibres. It is actually a biocomposite which means it is a mix of biodegradable materials.
Around 80% of the material is made up of fibres from bamboo and rice husks. Rice husks are a by-product of rice production, so it is a great material to use as it is normally thrown away. Although you might picture bamboo as tall thin trees, it is actually a breed of grass and so grows incredibly fast. This means all the bamboo used can be sustainably grown.
Both these materials are mixed with a resin created from amino acids. It is this resin that bonds all the fibres together. Importantly it also allows the mix to break down. When you place a plant fibre product in warm, damp conditions, like a compost heap or buried in the ground, the resin will start to break down. This, in turn, allows the fibres to break down and eventually the product will fully biodegrade away. This process will usually take around 2 to 3 years depending on the environmental conditions.
