At OrganiTrust ®, it does not make sense to eat organic food from landfilling or toxic food packaging, despite this being the case throughout the world today. The OrganiTrust ® circular economy standards take into account the health safety not only of human beings, but also the environment.
Current existing consumer regulations are not sufficient to protect the public from exposure to harmful substances – especially those individuals who are the most vulnerable, such as newborns or the elderly, or those suffering from illnesses – nor do they safeguard the environment. In the European Union, in 2012, a mere 26% of plastic waste was recycled, and 38% of plastic waste (or 9.6 million tonnes) goes to landfill annually.
OrganiTrust ® works proactively to make sure today you are not exposed to toxins that will be subject to bans tomorrow
Debates about the toxicity of BPA (bisphenol A) used in plastics were ongoing for thirty years. In 2017 it was finally recognised as substance of very high concern, while recommended exposure limits only were reduced by 95% in 2015, meaning that consumers were overexposed to it by 1000% prior to 2015.
Even when toxins are banned from production, the old and unsafe stock may remain on the market until it is sold out.
Go beyond box-ticking statutory organic regulations; choose the OrganiTrust ® circular economy standards for the complete safety of yourself and the planet.
