Degradable plastic is a wolf in sheep's clothing

 

FilmOrganic

Degradable polyethylene*

Base

Non-GMO bioplastic materials and tapioca derivatives

Petroleum-based plastic with metallic additives

Biodegradation

Process

Microorganisms and water transform the film into compost, CO2 and water vapor

Rejuvenates the soil

Metal additives chemically fragments the plastic

Toxic acids are left in your field

Timeframe

Engineered lifespans for specific crops and climates

Usable life ranges from 3 to 16 months

Breaks-up after 2 or more years.

Never breaks-down 100%

Causes lasting toxic acid contamination

Certifications

Certified heavy metal-free

Certified compostable

Certified germination rate

Certified non-toxic

No certification

Leaves permanent contamination

*Banned in the European Union. See link

“Oxo-degradable mulches are not biodegradable, compostable, or recyclable…”

FilmOrganic

Oxo-degradable*

Base

Non-GMO bioplastic materials and tapioca derivatives Plastic with chemical additives, most common is toxic Cadmium

Biodegradation process

Microorganisms and water transform the film into compost, CO2 and water vapor

Rejuvenates the soil

Chemical additives fragments the plastic leaving toxic acids in your soil

Timeframe

Engineered lifespans for specific climates

Usable life ranges from 3 to 16 months

No control

Sun-exposed film starts fragmenting within days or weeks 

Film left in the soil stays for many years

Certification

FilmOrganic

Polyethylene plastic

Base

Non-GMO bioplastic materials and tapioca derivatives

Petroleum-based plastic

Biodegradation

process

Microorganisms and water transform the film into compost, CO2 and water vapor

Rejuvenates the soil

Must be picked up and discarded in a local landfill

Implications of disposal

No clean-up, disk in soil

No extra labor costs

No disposal required, no costs

Saves time, immediately plant 2nd crop

Adds to bottom line, increases profit

Obligation to clean your field

Increases labor costs

High dumpster rental/disposal costs

Waste of time

Swallows your profits

After harvest

Rejuvenates the soil

Leaves 40 - 45 lbs. of organic compost

Plastic remnants permanently pollute soil

Loss of 200 lbs. of top soil

 

FilmOrganic is the Best weed barrier

 

FilmOrganic

Other certified compostable films

Transplanting seeding window

Up to a 60-day transplanting window depending on your planting schedule Must plant within 2 weeks after laying

Installation process

Patented coating has gridlines measuring tension when laying

Easy to lay, stays snug to soil

Easy to overstretch

Easy to under-stretch

Lifespans

Propretary coating controls lefespan

Lifespans engineered based on crop and climates zones

Uncontrolled lifespan

One-size-fits-all lifespans do NOT work with all crops and climate zones

Unique colors

Several heat-management color options boost yield Not available
 

FilmOrganic

Other soil-biodegradable competitors

Base

Includes organic matter and non-GMO tapioca GM (genetically modified) base and synthetic additives

Biodegradation process

Microorganisms and water transform film into compost, CO2 and water vapor

Rejuvenates the soil

Microorganisms and water transform film into compost, CO2 and water vapor

Bed-shoulder break up time

3 - 16 months

FilmOrganic products are engineered for 3 to 16 months useful lifespans

3 months only

Soil type and humidity can decrease or increase break-up time

Growing season

Lasts for your entire growing season Premature break-up is common

So what?

Protects all season long

Decreases weeding cost

Mulch film breaks down too soon

Weeds grow robbing crop nutrients,

Film fragments blow away in wind and no longer protects against weeds

Higher weeding cost
