BIC is a company that cares about the environment, it wants to be closer to today's issues and make its plastic materials better for the oceans.

Bic recycling lighters

"Millions of people around the world use them every day for cooking, heating, lighting or lighting birthday candles. Every year, almost seven billion disposable lighters are put on the market worldwide.
Faced with this problem, BIC is developing a machine capable of dismantling its own lighters piece by piece in order to recycle them.
Our company, Plastic@Sea, is helping Bic in its approach by studying the long-term effects of the plastics present on lighters.
We propose innovative solutions to improve the biodegradability and reduce the toxicity of their products. The aim is to reduce their impact on ecosystems and preserve the planet's resources.
