SUSTAINABILITY

PLASTIC ISN'T THE ONLY PROBLEM

Maistic products – whether branded or private label – contribute directly to six of the SDG goals. But all of the goals are equally important. And through the choice of partnerships and projects we contribute to even more SDGs – for example SDG 1 when we choose to produce in a factory in India founded by an elderly widow with workers in the same difficult situation. This factory might not have all the minimum certifications when we started the corporation – but this year they had the first important one. It makes us proud to use and off er a fabrication site like this.

Good health and well being

To ensure healthy lives and well-being for all, we all must act. At Maistic we promote healthy lifestyles, preventive measures and modern solutions to the growing challenge surrounding plastic.

Decent work and economic growth

Promote sustained, inclusive and sustainable economic growth, full and productive employment and decent work for all. Economic growth should be a positive force for the whole planet. Therefore, we at Maistic try to ensure decent and fulfilling jobs while not harming the environment.

Responsible consumption and production

Ensure sustainable consumption and production patterns. The world needs to learn how to use and produce in sustainable ways that will reverse the harm that we have inflicted on the planet. That’s our noblest task at Maistic.

Climate action

We want to combat climate change and its impacts on earth. Through education, innovation, and adherence to our climate commitments, we can make the necessary changes to protect the planet.

Life Below Water

Healthy oceans and seas are essential to our existence. They cover 70 percent of our planet, and we rely on them for food, energy, and water. Yet, we have managed to do tremendous damage to these precious resources. It’s one of the most important focus areas of Maistic.

Life on land

A flourishing life on land is the foundation for our life on this planet. At Maistic we focus on healthy alternatives which doesn’t destroy nature.

WE'RE ALL RESPONSIBLE. LET'S ACT RESPONSIBLE.

DEFINING COMPOSTABLE AND BIODEGRADABLE

Yes, the terms and meaning of biodegradable, biobased and compostable bioplastics are difficult to understand. A good one-pager is here
Maistic only work with bioplastics that are tested and certified both biodegradable and compostable and we work to support and develop the organic waste stream. Bioplastics only defined biobased while not biodegradable is not for us – you will have to ask for those types of plastic in the traditional plastics industry.
