Eco Features

The XD Eco Products have a lot of features, user friendliness, stunning design, energy or water saving, made from renewable materials. All these features have been represented in icons on the product pages to instantly show you what’s so good about it, but too give you a deeper understanding of the icons a small overview:

Bamboo

Bamboo is botanically classified under the grasses and probably one of the world’s most sustainable resources. It is the fastes growing grass that, under ideal conditions, can grow almost one metre per day. Processing bambboo into products is a small change that may form a major contribution to the ecological impact over time.

BPA Free

Bisphenol A (BPA) is an industrial chemical that has been linked to heart disease, diabetes and other adverse health impacts. Used most commonly in polycarbonate plastic products and epoxy resins

BPA can leach from packaging into foods and beverages. According to extensive research conducted on animals and humans, BPA exposure has been linked to heart disease, diabetes, learning disabilities and obesity. The Harvard School of Public Health has linked high exposure of BPA to consumption of canned soup and called for the elimination of BPA from food can linings.

Countries such as Canada, China and all of the European Union have banned BPA in specific uses and applications.

Biodegradable

PLA is the common name for Polyactide and is made from starch rich plants,such as corn, wheat and sugar beets. PLA is 100% Biodegradable and 100% Compostable. PLA is much more sustainable than regular petroleum made plastics and is nonvolatile, odorless and foodsafe.

reSound

Made with bio-derived polymers, designed for durable applications. Unlike neat biopolymers, usch as PLA, reSound compounds will meet or exceed performance requirements for durable applications previously considered out of reach for bio-based materials. reSound offers Sustainable solutions and can help customers differentiate their products.

rPET

rPet is recycled PET (Polyethylene terephthalate) from sources such as soda bottles. The plastic bottles are cleaned thoroughly, ground and spun into woven thread, the fibers are then used to create rolls of cloth. The products are manufactured from the cloth that started out as platic bottles. The advantage of this material is that it’s more environmentally friendly; 90% lower carbon footprint than nylon, 75% lower carbon footprint than polyester and 50% lower carbon footprint than organic cotton.

PVC Free

Studies have shown vinyl (PVC) can have toxic effects throughout its lifecycle. Vinyl is listed on the EPA’s warning list of materials that contribute toward poor indoor air quality among other health and safety concerns.

During manufacture, or disposal, hydrochloric acid and other toxic emissions can be created. Incineration of vinyl can lead to the formation of dioxin which is a known carcinogen and hormone disruptor.

The plasticizers used to soften vinyl can leach from the material during its useful lifecycle and have been linked to developmental impairment, especially with young males. Those plasticizers and other chemicals such as halogenated flame retardants can volatize into the air (VOC) emissions) becoming a bronchial irritant and potential asthma trigger.

Water Saving

Conserving water can save energy and money. In order to pump the water from a central facility into your home or office, energy is required to run that equipment. For example, studies have shown that in California alone, 6.5 percent of all energy consumed goes towards moving water from one place to another. So saving water means using less energy which reduces your carbon footprint. Using less water also keeps money in your pocket. By conservering water you are able to save thousands of gallons of water each year. You do the math, use less water and the water company charges you less money. That sounds like a good deal all around.

Energy Saving

Energy efficiency – doing more with less energy – benefits you, your country, and the world. The benefits of energy efficiency are numerous. But we think the best reasons are:

– Energy efficiency saves you money.(Using less energy means lower energy bills)
– Energy efficiency is good for the environment.(Saves natural resources and limits polution)
