What do we mean when we say these baskets are BIODEGRADABLE?
We mean that our baskets biodegrade entirely in 180 - 270 days when buried in soil or when floating in the ocean. A lot of plastics these days are labelled as biodegradable or compostable. Nearly all of these need either 1000s of years to biodegrade or are compostable only in industrial composters. The material we use for our baskets is entirely different from this. Read more about the amazing science of biodegradable thermoplastic polyurethane here.
These baskets are seriously made from PLANTS?
Yep. To be more specific, they'e made from oils produced by algae. How amazing is that? Most plastics out there are petroleum based. We're no experts, but we're guessing plant-based materials are probably better for the environment.
Won't these baskets just fall apart when I start using them?
Nope. The biodegradable material we use in our baskets needs to be exposed to specific conditions that exist in soil and/or ocean water for extended periods of time in order to start to biodegrade. We've been testing these on the slopes for 2 years now with no noticeable degradation. Maybe don't store them buried in the dirt in your backyard over summer though, just in case...
How do I install these baskets on my poles?
Our baskets fit both twist on and snap on pole basket assemblies. If you have twist on baskets, twist the old ones off and twist your new Stoke Tracks baskets on. If you have snap on baskets, pull those suckers off and snap your new Stoke Tracks baskets on. Easy does it!
