100 compostable packaging

It’s no secret that the world is facing an organic waste crisis. According to a report by the UN Environment Programme, “between 2008 and 2012, global organic waste generation increased by 27%, reaching an estimated 103 million tons”. This increase in organic waste has created a problem for disposal, as traditional methods like landfills are becoming less and less viable. Fortunately, there are newer, more environmentally friendly ways of disposing of our organic waste. In this blog post, we will explore 100 compostable packaging options that can help solve the problem of organics being disposed improperly. From biodegradable to compostable to even food-grade material, you’ll find something to suit your needs.

Types of Compostable Packaging

There are a variety of types of compostable packaging and compostable cups, which can be divided into two categories: recyclable and biodegradable. Recyclable packaging includes materials like paper, plastic, and aluminum that can be shredded and turned into new products. biodegradable packaging includes materials like plant-based waxes and carbon dioxide-based foams, which decompose in the environment to produce nutrients for plants.

Some compostable packaging options include:

-Compostable Plastic Bag: A compostable plastic bag made from corn or soybean oil can be heat treated to break down the plastic.
-Compostable Paper Bag: A compostable paper bag is made from a sustainable pulp source (e.g. bamboo). The bag is heated in an oven or dehydrator to break down the fibers and make it an organic material.
-Compostable Film Packaging: Compostable film packaging is made with natural cellulose fibres derived from wood or coconuts that are thermoformed into a package shape before being treated with an organic compound to make it decomposible in the soil.
