There has been a lot of news about how Carbon dioxide (Co2 – the most significant greenhouse gas contributing to climate change) in the atmosphere has passed 400 parts per million (ppm). Over the last 800,000 years, as this NOAA animation shows, carbon dioxide levels have being rising consistently.
Every year in March, Earth Hour (www.earthhour.org) offers people around the world the opportunity to show their concern for the environment by switching their lights off for an hour.
But one hour each year with all our National Monument’s lights switched off is great, but not enough if we want to have a real impact on climate change. Small steps can be made by all of us every day.
In this respect, SuperSap© by Entropy Resins is one more of the possible steps of “daily sustainability” that fight climate change. Our SuperSap © Sustainable epoxy helps by reducing the carbon footprint by 50%, since replacing 1Kg of standard epoxy with SuperSap © saves 4Kg of green house gas equivalents, without sacrificing final product performance. To this contribution we can add the 1% of Entropy Resins turnover that is invested with non-profit organizations dedicated to protecting the environment, by being members of 1% For the Planet (http://www.onepercentfortheplanet.org/en/).
If you are not an Epoxy Resin consumer, most likely you are an Epoxy Resin user, since many of the products you use in your daily life have resins for bonding or reinforcement reasons. Our aim is to introduce you to sustainable brands and platforms that make it easier for you to take into consideration environmental criteria when you are purchasing goods or manufacturing them.
What kind of products can I find in the market, that are build with SuperSap sustainable epoxy resin?
Skis, Snowboards, Splitboards, Longboards, Skateboards, Surfboards, Kiteboards, Windsurf boards, SUP, Handplanes, Wakeboards, Kayaks, Wooden Boats, Light Sailing Accessories like rudders, etc, Bicycles, Sunglasses, Jewelry, Fashion Shoes, Arts & Graphics, Sculptures, Furniture, Musical Instruments, Sound base systems, Automotive parts, Bio-Architecture, Sport Yachts…
