Sustainable Takeaway Packaging Options
Summary: Are you looking for a more sustainable takeaway packaging? Try and see which of these are the environmentally sustainable ones!

 
 

 
Bagasse. Sugarcane fibre products are made from bagasse, the pulp material remaining after the extraction of the sugar-bearing juice from sugarcane. This fibre by-product can be turned into products normally made from plastic or paper and avoids the pollution from the normal burning of sugarcane pulp after juice extraction. Sugarcane is a readily renewable resource, and are fully compostable. These products will usually compost within 30 days in a commercial composting facility and 90 days in a home composting system.

These products have no plastic or wax coating and are a far superior alternative to polystyrene, plastic and paper products. 

 
 
 
Bio-Coating. Renewable resources are natural, sustainable resources that are a great takeaway packaging alternative. With a handful of companies collaborating with paper and board producers, food packaging convertors, retailers, and major brand owners, they have developed water-based and bio-wax barrier coating solutions for the manufacturing of environmentally friendly, fibre-based packaging systems that require and more durable barrier performances. 

 
 

P.L.A. Polylactic Acid or PLA is a biodegradable and bioactive polyester derived from renewable resources such as corn starch, cassava roots, chips, sugarcane, or any form of natural starches available from the rest of the world. In 2010, PLA had the second highest consumption value of any bioplastic of the world.
