  • Overview
  • Jet Green is Elite's new bottle with plant-origin bioplastic made from sugar cane.

Product details

First off, what is bio-plastic?

The bio-plastic made from sugar cane is defined as bio-based as it's not petroleum-based but comes from plant biological sources. In this case, from sugar cane.

The bio-based ethanol used for the bottle body Jet Green is a great substitute for petroleum to make products that can ensure the same properties of traditional plastics in terms of resistance but with reduced environmental impact in terms of emissions.


Sustainable environmental footprint

Manufacturing bio-plastic bottles is one of the many aspects we invested in to make the production of our bottles more sustainable. The goal is to become totally carbon neutral, that is not just reducing, but compensating the CO2 emissions in the atmosphere as a result of the oxygen supply caused by sugar cane farming.

To understand its advantages in terms of emissions, just think of the manufacture of a thousand bottles. To produce a thousand Jet Green from sugar cane we were able to reduce the CO2 emissions in the atmosphere of about 160 kg, which is roughly 3 kg. of CO2 for each kg. of plastics produced.

This is also achieved as the sugar cane used for the Jet Green comes from sustainable farming, that is not from deforestation. Thanks to its great reproductive qualities, sugar cane grows in abundance also over smaller farming areas.


…And it’s practical with its copious liquid flow

Other than being more eco-friendly compared to traditional plastic bottles, the Jet Green is also practical to use while you're cycling.

The cap features the same technology used for the manufacture of the Fly bottles, ensuring quick and copious liquid flow while you're hydrating on a bicycle. Other than the soft bottle body made in squeezable material, drinking from it is easy also because of the practical push-pull nozzle, easy to open and close just by using your mouth, which is perfect for sports competitions.

Unscrewing the cap makes it easy to wash and dry the bottle after each use. Ask for it in your local cycling store!
