Grounded's water-soluble film is non-toxic, marine safe and dissolves in seconds when added to hot water. Made from PVOH, the material is extremely biodegradable in aerobic (soil, compost, freshwater) and anaerobic (sewerage, some landfills) conditions. Breaks down into hydrogen, carbon and oxygen.
Non-toxic and completely dissolves in hot water, leaving no residue
One of the few materials available globally that is marine degradable
The material is also highly biodegradable in both home and industrial composting conditions
It does not use any fossil fuel in its manufacture
It is more expensive than almost all other alternative flexible packaging materials
Functionally it is limited to uses with limited exposure to moisture or humidity (apparel bags etc)
It is manufactured primarily from synthetic materials
