Connect more sustainably
EcoSIM is an environmentally friendly SIM card specially designed to support network operators in achieving their sustainability and social responsibility goals. The SIM completely biodegrades at the end of its usable life, either in landfill or compost conditions eliminating its plastic waste.
The SIM that leaves no trace
What is it made from?
EcoSIM is a by-product of oil or natural gas consisting of 97% PVC and 3% oxo-degradation additive.
What is oxo-biodegradable?
EcoSIM is an oxo-biodegradable plastic that breaks down into tiny pieces and slowly degrades in the presence of oxygen and UV light. Whilst the card contains a stabiliser to ensure reliable and consistent performance over the usable life of the SIM whilst in use, when placed in a landfill, the degradation process takes 18-30 months. This offers a significant improvement compared to the estimated four hundred-plus years regular plastics take to decompose
Is it safe ?
EcoSIM is approved by the American Society of Testing and Materials (ASTM) and passes eco-toxicological testing according to ASTM and CE (EU) standards. The material contains no heavy metals and can be safely recycled with other oil-based plastic.
Telcos need planet-safe solutions to achieve their sustainability objectives and maintain consumers who are more environmentally aware than ever. With EcoSIM, we’re delighted to offer a more sustainable alternative that can make a real difference to their environmental footprint.
