Materials - Cellulose acetate is a material made of plants (wood and cotton pulp). It is FSC certified (Forest Stewardship Council), which means the wood cellulose we use comes from forests managed in a sustainable way. The wood comes from a legal logging and its extraction does not cause deforestation nor harm the biodiversity
Cellulose acetate is classified as “bioplastic” because it looks like plastic but it is not made of petroleum. Therefore, it is a sustainable material because it is biodegradable and can disappear in around ten years if put in a compost, unlike plastic or traditional acrylic (made from petroleum) which have a very long life time and pollute soils and oceans. Cellulose acetate can also be recycled, which means the scraps can be turned into reusable acetate and no material waste is made.
