Plant-Based & Natural, Biobased is the Future


Biobased products are derived from farm grown natural oils, vegetables and/or plant matter. They do not contain toxic chemicals and have very low VOC emissions making them safer for the environment and human health than petroleum-based alternatives.

Renewable and Sustainable

You likely have heard a lot about "Renewable" and "Sustainable" products. They are the buzzwords that are often used when discussing our future based on our interaction with our environment. But what exactly do they mean?

Sustainability is a new way of thinking about an age-old concern: ensuring that our children and grandchildren inherit a tomorrow that is at least as good as today, preferably better. It tells us that we must balance between resources used and resources regenerated.

This idea is conveyed in SSI's philosophy of environmental protection and stewardship. For more on this topic read our blog.

Renewable products are by definition sustainable because we can always grow more. They do not deplete the earth's limited resources.

Biobased products ARE RENEWABLE AND SUSTAINABLE and they can help YOUR business be more Renewable and Sustainable.
