Composting – Wise waste management.

A major issue facing modern society is waste management. More simply put, what should we do with the waste we produce? A growing emphasis has been placed on the three R’s: Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle. Composting provides a means of accomplishing all three of the R’s. Through composting the amount of garbage sent to the landfill is reduced, the organic matter is reused rather than dumped, and it is recycled into a useful soil amendment.

Natural ecosystems have a proven method of breaking down organic materials into a useful end-product: the decomposers found within the food chain break down nature’s organic waste and turn it into humus, the organic component of soil.

Composting is a way of harnessing the natural process of decomposition to speed up the decay of waste. The history of composting dates back to the history of early agriculture. Many find that composting is as much of an art as a science. Recent concern about managing wastes and producing food in an environmentally sound manner has led to a renewed interest in small-scale, backyard composting as well as an interest in developing large-scale, commercial and municipal composting systems.

Designing successful composting systems requires an understanding of certain biological, chemical, and physical processes such as the movement of air, uptake of carbon and nitrogen, and heat production and transfer.

Ecolife provides environmentally sustainable and cost effective organic waste management technologies. Ecolife provides design, equipment and commissioning for composting projects. The composting technologies promoted by Ecolife provides an environmentally sustainable solution to the organic waste problem faced in many countries. It is an environmentally sustainable solution in that it reduces the amount of waste going to landfill, processes this waste without polluting the soil, air or water, and provides an stable organic product that can be used to improve soil productivity and increase plant production. The nutrients in the compost and fertilizer products that are produced reduce the dependence on chemical fertilizer.


Ecolife composting technologies are climate change friendly achieved by reducing methane emission from landfills through diversion of the organic waste that would otherwise produce methane. The recycling of nutrients required by plants decreases the dependency on chemical fertilizers, the production of which is an energy intensive process..

Loyalk9 Chennai Pet food Packed in Biodegradable / Compostable packaging.

Consumers are paying close attention to where their pets’ food comes from—and what it’s packaged in. The pet food packaging segment is stepping up to meet the industry’s needs.

The idea of sustainability has permeated nearly every facet of business. The larger issues of climate change and concern for the environment have resulted in consumers looking more carefully than ever at their impact on the Earth, including what they buy, how they buy it and who they buy it from. The pet food industry is certainly not immune to the pressures of passing the sustainability test, and as manufacturers do their best to meet customer expectations, packaging companies are focusing on what they can do, both to help manufacturers meet their goals and to satisfy consumers with the results of their own products.

LoyalK9 manufactures holistic dog food. LoyalK9 is a Species Appropriate Diet for Dogs (SAD-D) made of hygienic ingredients (moist meat, bones, organs of farm animals, fresh vegetables and essential oils) graded for human consumption.

Coca-Cola Produces World’s First 100% Plant-Based PET Bottle

Coca-Cola has produced the world’s first PET plastic bottle made entirely from plant materials.

PlantBottle packaging is Coke’s plant-based alternative to packaging traditionally made from fossil fuels and other non-renewable materials. PlantBottle packaging uses patented technology that converts natural sugars found in plants into the ingredients for making PET plastic bottles. The packaging looks, functions and recycles like traditional PET.

PlantBottle packaging can be used for a variety of packaging sizes and across water, sparkling, juice and tea beverage brands. Today, the company uses sugarcane and waste from the sugarcane manufacturing process to create PlantBottle packaging.

Since the 2009 PlantBottle launch, Coke has distributed more than 35 billion bottles in nearly 40 countries using its current version of PlantBottle packaging, made from up to 30 percent plant-based materials. The company estimates the use of PlantBottle packaging since launch has helped save the equivalent annual emissions of more than 315,000 metric tons of carbon dioxide.

OVER 1 ACRE OF RAINFOREST ARE DEFORESTED EVERY SECOND

OVER 1 ACRE OF RAINFOREST ARE DEFORESTED EVERY SECOND

We need our world’s forest. They are vital sources of oxygen. They moderate our climates, prevent floods, and are our best defense against soil erosion. Forests recycle and purify our water. They are home to millions of plants and animals. We are losing’s Earth’s greatest biological treasures; Rainforests those once covered 14% of the earth’s land surface; now they cover a mere 6%. It took millions of years to turn rainforests into an incredibly beautiful and complex environments they are today; It has taken only a century of human intervention to destroy what nature designed to last forever.

What Can We Do?

We can reuse paper & wood products and use recycled paper whenever possible. We can support organizations involved in rainforest conservation.  A cultural shift towards a plant-based diet would be substantial step toward saving our remaining forests. It takes far less agricultural land to produce a plant-based diet. Since forests absorb carbon dioxide and produce oxygen, the movement towards a plant based diet would provide our children with more plentiful oxygen to breathe an atmosphere with fewer greenhouse gases, and a more stable climate.

Can We Turn Things Around? Perhaps. Perhaps Not

But, there is still time to turn things around if we act now it may dramatically perk up God’s wondrous creation that we care about and love. It would be like as if you were planting and tending a tree, helping to create a greener and healthier future for all generations to come.

PLA Lined Paper Cups

PLA Paper Cups

Extensive changes in the manufacturing of paper and plastic have occurred over the past few decades. EPA figures indicate that paper manufacturing increased more than 300 percent from 1960 to 2013. The data for plastics present an even more startling contrast, with plastic generation increasing more than 7,000 percent during the same time period. More than 1 million tons of the paper generated in 2013 consisted of paper cups and plates, virtually all of which were discarded. More than 800,000 tons of plastic cups and plates were generated that same year, with most ending up in the trash.

PE Coating on paper is not compatible with end of life operations. The paper biodegrades leaving fine line PE to pose huge damage to Life on Earth. Replacing the PE with bio based and fully biodegradable PLA coatings offer the value proposition of a reduced material carbon footprint.

Our Cups offer safe water proofing, grease resistance and can be used for Hot Applications also.

What Are Eco Friendly Products?

TREND_GreenPackaging_hero2

We all know that our consumer culture creates a huge environmental footprint. Everything from sourcing the base materials of whatever it is we’re buying, through to the manufacturing processes, the packaging, transportation and eventual disposal all result in pollution and thousands of tons of rubbish being disposed of in landfill every day.

Unfortunately though, as nice and simple as the ideal answer may be, we can’t simply all stop spending money and buying new products. Not only would the economy collapse (again!) but it’s simply not realistic in today’s world. And even if you limit your purchases to the bare essentials you’re still going to need to buy products to replace old ones as they wear out. And this is where eco friendly products come in.

Eco friendly products are designed specifically to be as sensitive to the needs of the environment as possible. Typically, environmentally-friendly products fit into one or more of several categories. Some eco-friendly products are considered green because their ingredients are safe, others environmentally-friendly products made from materials that are quickly renewable and can be used again and again.

Many eco friendly products are designed so that they can be easily and sustainably disposed of at the end of their life without contributing to the problems of rubbish disposal. Frequently this means that the products are eco friendly but the packaging it comes is plastic packaging, In short, eco friendly products do exactly what their non-eco friendly alternatives do – tons of plastic rubbish being disposed of in landfill every dayTREND_GreenPackaging_hero2

What’s the point?

A truly eco friendly product must have a eco friendly packaging too.That would make our earth green in its true sense.
