In Australia, bioplastics kettles and toasters produced by Philips Domestic Appliances are now available at local appliance retailer Bing Lee. 

Priced at $129 each, the Eco Collection uses plant oil waste in its bioplastic casings. Purchase will also trigger a tree planted in the Philippines under an agreement between Philips and EcoMatcher. 

“We are seeing more Australian consumers willing to purchase eco-friendly products and pricing can often be the secondary consideration,” Geoff Hannaford, Country Manager, Australia and New Zealand, says in a press statement.  “By introducing bio-based plastics made from used cooking oil, we contribute to the reduction of CO2 emissions, we help to reduce water pollution, we limit overall use of soil resources (meaning a lower impact on food production) and we create products with parts that are recyclable.”
