100% Plant-Based Bottle
Better Bottle for Mother Earth
This bottle is powered by plants! Made from 100% sugarcane, it helps reduce greenhouse gases, and is renewable and fully recyclable. Download Bhoomi's press release here.
Climate Collaborative and Trayak's Impact Study
Improving Bhoomi’s Packaging Impact
For this study, Bhoomi wanted to compare the environmental impact of switching their current PET bottle to a sugarcane-based bio HDPE bottle. Incorporating sugarcane into their bottle brings the company full circle with their drink, packaging, and business materials incorporating the regeneratively grown sugarcane plant. As with any packaging change, Bhoomi would need to evaluate any new possible configuration to ensure damage rate, barrier properties, cost, and performance are not negatively effected. This study helped Bhoomi quantify environmental impacts prior to investing those resources to determine the overall impact of the switch.
To measure the environmental benefits, Bhoomi applied and was accepted into a Packaging Climate Optimization project-a partnership between Climate Collaborative and Trayak. This project connects Climate Collaborativecommitted companies to Trayak, who uses a cost-effective, streamlined LCA to quickly benchmark existing packaging and develop climate-improved alternatives.
All three organizations worked together to collect packaging system information (materials, conversion processes, masses, etc.) and perform the analysis with Trayak’s LCA tool, EcoImpact-COMPASS (Comparative Packaging Assessment). Switching to a bio HDPE bottle showed a plethora of benefits for Bhoomi.
Results by the numbers
Bhoomi engaged in this case study because of their commitment to revolutionizing the relationship with sugarcane in Western culture. One way to do that is by switching their primary packaging from a PET bottle to a bio HDPE made from sugarcane.
