How Using Biobased Packaging Can Help the Environment and Your Business

Are you still using plastic?

Time to go with the times. Bioplastic food packaging is the new way to go. In using biobased packaging, you will not only help the environment you can also make waves of positive changes for your business.

Let’s learn a lot more about these benefits.

Environmental Benefits

More than 1.5 billion paper cups are disposed every year in Australia and New Zealand. This is such a huge waste considering that these cups were only used once and non-renewable fossil fuels were used to produce these.

All these can change with biobased packaging. As they are made from renewable organic resources, like plant starch, sugarcane and algae, the percentage of fossil fuels used up and carbon emissions produced from making them are significantly lesser than that of making oil based plastics. This can make a huge impact on the environment, saving resources for the next generation.

Effects to Your Business

In using biobased packaging, not only will your business help save the environment for future generations you will also have environmental credentials and be known as being a sustainable company. This will allow your clients to see you as a business who cares not just about making profits but also about making a difference.

In going bio, you don’t even have to sacrifice quality. When getting packaging solutions from trusted providers such as BioPak you will be assured of quality products. This means your business will be known as a company who serves their products in high quality packaging solutions.

Your business can choose to be a bystander in business’ efforts to offer a more sustainable packaging for their products, or you can choose to take part. In choosing the latter, and using bioplastic packaging solutions, you can help minimise the negative effects of unsustainable packaging or of using non-renewable resources and you can help set a good example to your customers, clients and other businesses.
