CATO switches to Bio Bottles on their journey to becoming Carbon Neutral

CATO Location Services is leading the entertainment and construction industries as the first traffic control company to be carbon neutral certified by Climate Active. With over a decade of experience specialising in location services and logistics, CATO delivers innovative and sustainable solutions for environmentally-conscious clients. 

Part of CATO’s journey to becoming carbon neutral certified was saying goodbye to microplastics! They chose Custom Water’s Bio Bottles to help them achieve this. The Bio bottle is 100% landfill biodegradable, including everything from the cap to the label, shrink wrap and pallet wrapping. As opposed to regular PET bottles, Bio Bottles will completely biodegrade within a number of years, leaving no harmful microplastics or toxic residues behind. In fact, as the bottle breaks down and is digested by microbes in the soil it becomes a natural plant

CATO only provide disposable water bottles to clients on request and encourage everyone on site to bring their own reusable option. However, if water bottles are required, they decided to
provide the option with the least impact. Fully recyclable and made from 100% recycled materials, the Bio Bottle forms part of an ongoing cycle of waste reduction. The goal is to reduce
the percentage of plastic that ends up in landfill altogether, and to minimise the amount of new plastics being created. When you’re done with one of the Bio Bottles, you can throw it in the yellow bin and it will be put to use again and again before going back into the earth.

One of CATO’s highest priorities as a company is to continually reduce its impact on theenvironment. Cutting back on non-biodegradable single-use plastics is another step forward
towards this goal.
