Frequently asked questions to eat green

Do nip green products contain melamine?

No melamine is used in the manufacture of nip green products.

 

How can nip green products be disposed of?

nip green products are made from materials with a very high proportion of renewable raw materials. The products are not compostable. The material used is 100% recyclable, there are not currently any suitable collection. Consumer goods made of plastic as well as bio-based plastic (e.g. dummies, crockery, cutlery) can be disposed of with the residual waste, packaging can be disposed of with the Green Dot. Please obtain information about the recycling systems in your region for the best waste disposal options.
 

Can food in the nip green cups and bowls be heated in the microwave?

Our nip green products are melamine and BPA free, which is one of the reasons why food can be safely heated in the microwave in the cups and bowls.
 

Do the nip green products have a coating which components can detach from?

The nip green products have no coatings whatsoever. Therefore, no components can become detached either.
 

Why do nip green products not consist of 100% or only 94% or 90% renewable raw materials?

The main components of the material consist of 100% renewable raw materials. Depending on the nip green product, the materials are based on sugar cane, carbohydrates (sugar, starch) or vegetable oils (no palm oil). Additives and coloured granules approved for food contact materials and articles are also used. Additives are necessary to achieve their material properties (e.g. fracture behaviour, workability) and colour. Our information on material composition refers to the minimum content of renewable raw materials after the product has been manufactured.

 

Are the nip green products fragile?

The nip green products are similarly unremarkable to other plastic tableware made of polypropylene (PP) in terms of fracture behaviour.
