THE OCEAN IS OUR FRIEND, BUT WE ARE NO FRIEND TO THE OCEAN
Food containers and packaging are the largest component of the municipal solid waste stream (80 million tons or 31.7 %). These items, together with plastic bags, also represent the largest component of marine debris (that is, barring items less than 5mm such as pre-production plastic pellets, fragments, and polystyrene pieces).
What´s the QR code BioScore?
The Qr BioScore code developed by ActiveQuinoa summarizes in a simple way the composition of the materials used in their products.
BioScore aims to be a packaging identification system with a greater ecological composition. The score obtained by each product is translated into a scale or color indicator, the green color (letter A) indicating the highest environmental quality, and the red color (letter E) being the worst quality for our planet.
The QR code Bioscore aims to take into account the company’s responsibility in the use of more biodegradable or recyclable materials and help the consumer to get to know the impact of their purchase.
How does BioScore work?
An algorithm is used to calculate the BioScore of a product, which considers the quantities of recycled, recyclable raw material and the certified origin of the raw materials used
