Biodolomer for Life will participate in Plastic Ocean Panel discussion in Ängelholm on February 26th

Plastic Ocean

On February 26th Biodolomer® for Life has been invited to participate during a panel discussion, during the screening of the film “Plastic Ocean”, regarding the growing problem of plastic pollution in the oceans, as fossil plastics add to the plastic sea belts, as well as the microplastics content, causing great harm to both environment and wildlife.

Martin Dyberg, Strategic Communicator at NSR AB and Vera Park, is representing Biodolomer® for Life during the panel discussion and will share information about the project and the circular economy, as well as the benefits with Biodolomer®.

The panel discussion is taking place as part of the screening of the documentary film “Plastic Ocean”, which addresses the problems associated with 10 million tons of plastics ending up in the environment – in the ocean and on land – every year.

Interested in the film?

The film is screened on February 27th in Hörsalen, Ängelholms bibliotek, at 19:00; free entrance, no pre-booking.

Biodolomer® for Life exhibited during SHL game at Lindab Arena in Ängelholm

Swedish Hockey League team Rögle BK had kindly invited the Biodolomer® for Life project to exhibit at the club’s sustainability day. The day was arranged on December 26th, during their game against Linköping HC. It was part of the club’s efforts to work for a sustainable future; both as a youth player academy, as well as a dedicated member of society.

Approximately 4700 people had decided to put their Christmas celebration on hold and instead visit Lindab Arena. The exhibition was open for the audience before and during the game. Biodolomer for Life had been given a place just inside of the entrance, with unimpeded exposure towards the visitors. This proved to be the ideal place from which to showcase our messages and product samples, as well as striking up conversations with passersby. Interested visitors had the opportunity to learn more about Biodolomer®, renewable fully biodegradable biomaterials and the circular economy. They were also  shown how the Biodolomer for Life project fits into it all.

Judging by the reactions, interest in biomaterials is gaining momentum, with negative side effects from plastics being common knowledge. However, the information provided by producers and retailers regarding the environmental attributes of their products often are difficult to understand. Claims of being “green” or “recyclable”, whilst factually correct, does not always mean what the consumers believe they mean. Instead, many of these products are not biodegradable or recyclable and will not fit into the circular economy.

About Biodolomer®
