Philips recently introduced the world’s first breakfast set its Eco-Conscious Collection, made with 100% bio-based plastics from used cooking oil. The used plant oil is safely collected and transported by the company to a factory that specialises in processing waste products into bio-based plastic granules.
These granules are then used by Philips Home Appliances to manufacture the latest Eco-Conscious collection. This manufacturing process is aimed at reducing carbon dioxide emissions, water pollution, and the overall use of natural resources – all of which help to protect the environment. The result developed is a range of everyday kitchen appliances made from sustainable materials with recyclable parts.
Philps Eco-Conscious collection aims to put an end to plastic usage by introducing this breakfast range made from 100% bio-based material. The company uses oil as a resource to create bio-based plastics. With this breakthrough innovation, Philips aims to avoid plastics made from fossil fuels and instead rely on what they already have. By using the bio-based plastic in the Eco-Conscious Breakfast Collection, Philips Home Appliances is contributing to the reduction of CO2 emissions by nearly 21%.
