Protector of the planet
There are 46,000 pieces of plastic in each square mile of the ocean.
Between 60 and 90 percent of litter that accumulates on shorelines is made up of plastic polymers.
Under marine conditions, some additives present in plastics become toxic to marine life and humans.
CleanSeas, which was launched in February of 2017, aims to target the causes of marine litter by limiting the production and consumption of non-recoverable and single-use plastic such as bottles, bags, and straws. The initiative encourages government, corporate, and community involvement to achieve this goal.
XYMOGEN is honored to be part of a very exclusive group of companies to support the UN on this important environmental issue. Musto, an outdoor and performance apparel company whose clothing the British royal family often wears, Dell computers and Volvo are some of the notable businesses that have joined the initiative. International governments currently attached to this massive cleanup effort include Kenya, Sweden, Italy, Canada, and the United Kingdom. The only American governmental support to date is from the government of American Samoa.
XYMOGEN is curtailing its use of plastics by moving from plastic bottles to thin-film dose packs, which are packaged in paper cartons. The same is true for its large, plastic tubs that contain powders, such as the FIT Food and OptiCleanse family of formulas. In place of these, patients may choose to receive their formulas in perfectly portioned thin-plastic serving packets, which also use considerably less plastic.
