MMORE Recycling program
ARE YOU THE OWNER OF AN MMORE PHONE CASE, BUT ITS LIFESPAN IS COMING TO AN END?
We started a program that will provide another life for these cases. We love nature in every way and always try to keep our environment clean and safe. That's the reason why we always want to stick to the principle: REDUCE, REUSE, RECYCLE! ♻️
SUSTAINABILITY IS AT THE CORE OF MMORE
Our cases are made from organic materials and recyclable PU cases (made in SGS certified non-toxic production), so everything we make, we can also recycle responsibly to lower our footprint. The big problem in the world is that 80% of all plastic is not recycled at all (when it could be). When you can't avoid plastic, make sure you use one which can be recycled and used again properly.
We ship your orders either with a Ø-plastic default packing option or a retail gift packing option from kraft paper and hemp rope. Wow amazing, the whole thing will be possible to recycle. 💚
Next year we will add biodegradable phone cases into our offer, which can be recycled also. How to recycle them, how bioplastic behaves, how it is handled and all other useful information you will find below. 👇
THE TRUTH ABOUT BIOPLASTIC
Some companies are looking to move to Plastic-Free concepts. Using biodegradable plastic should be one possible solution. But does biodegradable plastic, really degrade by itself?
Often, people assume bioplastic is the way to solve the challenge of plastic existing "forever" in landfills and our tragic marine and landfill plastic pollution crisis. Unfortunately that is not the case, because the vast majority of bioplastic will not biodegrade in the ocean or landfill environments if it isn’t disposed of properly (goes for absolutely all biodegradable bioplastics). Because of all the missinformation, bioplastics often end up in landfills or even composts where, deprived of oxygen, they may release methane, a greenhouse gas 23 times more potent than carbon dioxide.
Biodegradable plastic can be broken down completely into water, carbon dioxide and compost by a proper procedure of microorganisms under the right conditions, heat and residue removal. But what are the right conditions that actually provide plastic to degrade?
While the biodegradability of bioplastics is an advantage, most need high temperature industrial composting facilities to break down. An industrial composting recycling centers have the right conditions to recycle it: The necessary balance of heat, moisture, air and microorganisms to efficiently compost food and other compostable waste. But with a need for temperatures of 60°C or more, these are not conditions that can be provided by being buried in the ground or in a compost heap at home.
We think it's important to educate our customers about responsible solutions that won’t harm Nature and our home land in any way. 💚 That’s why we think eliminating litter (and improving waste management) in developing nations and creating stronger markets for recycling any type of plastics are important next steps for a brighter future for all of us. ♻️
DON'T THROW THE OLD PHONE CASE AWAY, BUT DO SOMETHING GOOD FOR ENVIRONMENT AND SEND IT BACK TO US!
It's much better if you send it back to us instead of throwing it into the trash. Why? We will recycle it! And that's not all. You will also benefit by receiving a thank you gift from us! 😍
WHAT IS THE PROCEDURE OF RECYCLING PROGRAM?
You just simply send it back to us by your local post office, with low prices (untrackable in paper envelope). In addition to the phone case, leave in the envelope also your email address to which you want to receive your gift. 💌
When we receive your phone case, we will properly separate plastic from organic materials to enable recycling. We will take care of organic materials, which can be biodegrade in landfill. 🌱
They will be sent to a Recycling center, to be shredded and rid of impurities. The shreds will then be melted and formed into pellets, which will be used as a base material for transforming it into new products. 🆕
What about the biodegradable cases?
They will be sent to specialized Recycling center, where the breakup will be accelerated and controlled. Bioplastic will 100% degrade only in industrial composting plants under specific conditions. Degradation is dependent on factors such as temperature, time, humidity and the presence of bacteria and fungi in the specific environment. These factors can be controlled in industrial composting plants. 🌿
Once your old phone case is successfully recycled you will receive Recycling Certificate. ♻️
By doing this great thing for nature, you will also get a 50% discount on our website for purchasing the new phone case for your phone. 🎁
WHERE TO SEND A USED PHONE CASE?
Send it to our shipping address, based in SLOVENIA.
