PLASTIC IS EVERYWHERE
We all want to contribute to a better planet, and at the same time, enjoy our lives. But that’s not always easy. Most of the products we use on a daily basis (bottles, cups, storage containers, lunch boxes) are made from oil-based plastic (over 350 billion kg yearly, and rising). In addition, plastic products are often designed without taking durability and end-of-life into account, resulting in overuse of plastic and products ending up on a landfill or being burned.
BE O lifestyle founder Damir Perkic worked in the plastic industry for years. He was confronted with the large amounts of oil used for plastic and the effect that this has on the environment. He started looking for solutions. And fortunately, there’s a better way.
THE POWER OF PLANTS
By making their products from plants instead of oil, BE O saves a lot of CO2. The plants absorb CO2 during their lifetime. By making plants into products, BE O enables everyone to keep on enjoying their lives, while actively contributing to a healthier planet. Even though this contribution seems small, it’s exactly where the key lies; in our own, daily decisions.
All of BE O's products are made in The Netherlands, assembled at a sheltered workplace and fully recyclable. Handy products for your everyday moments that are easy to carry, clean and store.
