PELA

We are so proud to be able to offer this compostable case among our products. We at North Ones buys our Pela cases from Canada where Pela produces them.  By doing this North Ones can transport the cases from Canada in big batches - lowering the emissions per unit, compared to shipping just one unit direct from pela in Canada to the customer in northern Europe and Scandinavia. We are working closely with Pela to achieve the best possible solution. 

the

pela case is made of Flaxstic®

pela waste

the most sustainable way to handle your pela case

when you are no longer in use of it, is to send it back - creating a possibility to reuse the material into another generation of Pela Cases. Another way to handle your Pela Case is to place it among your bio-based waste (food leftovers etc) since the cases are 100% degradable, just like food. In Sweden, and in most of the European countries your Pela Case will be decomposed to biogas or biofertilizer.

The base material meets the standards for biodegradability in an industrial composting facility, ASTM D6400-04 from U.S. and the EN 13432 from E.U.

However, since part of the material is comprised of non renewable resources you should not let it decompose on your back yard, which can lead to disseminating a small amount of micro plastic. The industrial decomposers can handle this in a good way, and choosing the Pela Case helps with the transition from fossil-dependent production to a renewable products.

wood cases

Our wood cases are truly one of a kind with their composition! The wood cases come in walnut, cherry and bamboo and all varieties of wood are FSC certified. The plastic is polycarbonate and have been thoroughly tested. Mixing plastic and wood means that less plastic is needed compared to a traditional plastic case, and it also makes it so much more stunning.

the

plastic is formed with a process called injection molding

wood waste

the plastic is polycarbonate

which is a hard plastic consisting coloring. Since it’s a hard plastic it means that you should sort your case as combustible waste, so the plastic and the wood can be burned up. 

The materials contains energy and when the municipality burn your case together with the household waste it will be transformed to heat and electricity, which is essential for everyday use. There is a big problem with plastic reaching the oceans all over the globe. Make sure you put the case in a bin and not on the streets or in nature! We are aiming for a positive net effect, and are currently working to find a fitting environmental compensation for our plastic sales. We are calculating the emissions from the case and will compensate by helping to remove single use plastic from nature. Together we can make sure that less plastic linger in wrong places!
