The true definition and meaning of sustainability are often quoted as being: "Development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs."

In 2015 it was estimated that global plastic pollution was approximately 380 million tonnes. And by 2015, the world had produced 7.8 billion tonnes of plastic. That’s more than one tonne of plastic for every person alive today. So it should come as no surprise that plastic pollution has become one of the world’s most pressing environmental crises.

Mirum has therefore been designed with the core fundamentals of being fully biodegradable and 100% recyclable. This means that not only does Mirum contain no petrochemicals but it fits nicely into the circular system.

Any Mirim not returned to NFW will return to the soil and biodegrade naturally, releasing its nutrients back into the soil. In this way no inputs are lost, extra CO2 is not created and the conditions for a circular system are met.
