Gigs 2 Go tabs are designed to be shared over and over and over again. Each tab contains COB memory that's shockproof and waterproof. That's why they don't need a cap. And the molded paper pulp enclosure is very durable. The pulp is compressed and molded at a high pressure, resulting in a rugged, long lasting material.
When the Gigs 2 Go tabs have reached the end of their useful life, the molded paper enclosure can be torn off and composted. The interior contents can be separated (they are not glued together) and recycled. Unlike typical plastic flash drives, which are impossible to disassemble, the Gigs 2 Go lifecycle has been designed conscientiously.
But let's face it - many thumb drives end up in the landfill. That's why we have dematerialized Gigs 2 Go down to a minimum of non-renewable materials. Gigs 2 Go is more than 75% biodegradable.
