Sustainable entrepreneurship is an important aspect within the policy of coin tube. That is why we completely refine the waste generated during production. We even go one step further with our ECO-TOKENS ™, a biodegradable consumer currency.
These environmentally friendly coins are made of a starch-based bioplastic. We get this starch from potato peels from the fries processing industry. In other words, these coins are made with natural and renewable resources. The ECO coins ™ are 100% biodegradable in nature.
If the ECO coins ™ end up in nature and are exposed to air, moisture, sunlight and bacteria for months, the ecological coins will completely break down. The tokens will be reduced to CO2, water and biomass, in short, natural fertilizers for plants. In the absence of one of these four conditions, the tokens will not end. Caution! For the maintenance of our ecological chips, we recommend cleaning the coins with a slightly damp cloth. Due to their degradable properties, contact with water and detergent is expressly not recommended.
The material we use for our ECO coins ™ complies with European biodegradation standards (EN13432). In addition, our biodegradable coin is patented.
