It is not just consumer products companies who are jumping into the bioplastics arena but premium brand company Gucci also realized the benefits of bioplastic.
The company launched its “Sustainable Soles” edition of women’s and men’s shoes designed by Frida Giannini as part of Gucci’s Prefall 2012 collection. The shoes are made of biodegradable plastics (the company did not indicate what kind of polymers), which it said was certitied by UNI EN 13432 and ISO 17088 in Europe.
