BONYEON / Biodegradable Material

BONYEON

Bonyeon is a fundamental solution to the plastic problem by replacing living products with short replacement cycles with new materials.
Bonyeon dosen’t need specific nature conditions to be able to decomposed 100% and it dosen’t produces greenhouse gases as they break down. Furthermore, it doesn’t require world’s food supply because we use only by-product from south korea’s Primary industries (fishing, forestry, agriculture).
Bonyeon even went one step further. By using by-products that are continuously neglected in agricultural and fishing village are used in the environmental industry to revitalize the economy of the rural area.
