What B Corp Means To Floreon.
“Recent attention on oil-based plastic production makes our B Corp™ certification a notable step and signals a shift towards greater accountability and transparency in the sector.
B Corp™ also sits well with our company ethos. We have both a social and environmental commitment to improve mass market plastic production by researching and developing durable PLA alternatives for the future of our planet. Our priority is to pave the way for a new way of doing things with plant-based plastic from halogen-free flame retardant PLA for electricals to durable, non-toxic grades for toys.”
Floreon Chairman, Shaun Chatterton
