This Is Plastic – But Not As You Know It
rHIPS.b is made from 100% waste materials. We take things like old products, old yoghurt pots, and the inside of fridges, and turn them into useful products
No virgin material is used. No deforestation needed to grow ‘eco’ materials
Unlike other popular bioplastics it does not require extremely particular conditions to biodegrade. The rHIPS.b polymer is broken down by over 600 naturally occurring microbes. Naturally biodegradeing in home compost, marine, and landfill 200 times faster than standard plastic
No Microplastics Just Rich Biomass
Biodegredation occurs by friendly microbes fully digesting the polymer. No microplastics. All that is left is rich biomass and water
New Colourways Inspired By Nature
Colourways inspired by the manufacturers location, Cornwall. Reminders of recycled history are visible – much like newspaper pulp in egg cartons, the flecks you see in rHIPS.b are the flecks from the recycled products used to create it.
Design & Manufactured In The UK
rHIPS.b products are made from waste materials sourced from the UK, or from manufacturer waste we’ve created ourselves. All designed, manufactured, and distributed from Cornwall to wherever it needs to go. Meaning no air miles and more smiles.
