JET GREEN PLUS is Elite's new bottle with plant-origin bioplastic made from sugar cane. Compared to the standard version, the JET GREEN PLUS features a protective cover to ensure protection from dust, mud and other external agents that might accumulate on the bottle spout. This bio-based bottle is just one of the many projects kickstarted by elite to make the manufacturing cycles of its cycling products range more sustainable.
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 JET GREEN and JET GREEN PLUS bottle bodies makes it possible to 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 in the air caused by sugar cane farming.
Protective cover for total hygiene The main difference between JET GREEN and JET GREEN PLUS is that the latter also features a protective cover made in regular plastic, designed to supply protection and hygiene to the spout from dust, mud and other external agents that might settle on the nozzle while cycling. Thanks to its protective cover, the JET GREEN PLUS is particularly indicated fro gravel and mountain bike courses.
