Beauty pageant promotes bioplastic

The green blog has been neglected these days and to compensate (especially for the male readers..Lol) here’s a very important news about bioplastic invading the beauty pageant industry.

According to the Miss America Organization, it has partnered with Nature’s Bottles to promote their bioplastic-based bottled water made from NatureWorks’ Ingeo polylactic acid resin.

Nature’s Bottles noted the use of 2.5 billion barrels/year of oil for making plastics. The company said more than 60 million petroleum-based water bottle plastics end up in landfills every day.

“We are excited to partner with an innovative and exciting new company, Nature’s Bottles(TM), to promote one of the most important and socially relevant causes that face our future generations,” said Art McMaster, President and CEO of the Miss America Organization.

The Miss America Organization is promoting the bioplastic bottles under Nature’s Bottles Go Green program.
