orking with research institutes specializing in bio-based polymers, through a detailed analysis, Bonaveri is proud to have produced a new material which is a truly biodegradable, natural plastic from renewable resources. The bio-based polymer made from a 72% sugarcane derivative obtained
a 3-star OK BIOBASED certification from Vinçotte of Belgium (BPlast®). The mannequins are then finished in a bio-compatible paint made solely from natural plant based ingredients (BPaint®). At the final life cycle stage, the mannequin biodegrades, releasing only water and the equivalent amount of CO2 that the sugarcane absorbed during its vegetative phase.
The manufacturing operations were assessed against the Eco-Age's GCC Principles of Sustainable Excellence, covering social welfare, enviornmental protection, training provision and security for workers.
