The world has a waste problem. While you might not see it in your home, in your neighbourhood or in your place of work, we all know this to be true thanks in most part to the many awareness campaigns being spread across various social media platforms.
Our planet is slowly dying because of the vast amount of waste we put into it on a daily basis, and it’s high time to take action and stop this from happening. But how can we, and those of us in the food and hospitality sector in particular, do our part when producing waste is inevitable in this industry?
Quite surprisingly, one solution is much simpler than we think.
The food and hospitality industry is responsible for a significant amount of waste, not just from the production of food and its leftovers but also from its processing, packaging and distribution. Considering that practically all people must eat three times a day, the total amount of waste produced can be staggering. The packaging of food is particularly problematic because food packaging are more often than not made of single-use, non-biodegradable materials that end up becoming rubbish for years and years after.
So what can be done? As simple a change as switching to environmentally friendly packaging can make a really big difference. With environmentally friendly packaging, we are able to close the loop on the production of food packaging and limit the total amount of non-biodegradable waste produced.
Environmentally friendly food packaging products are made from recycled, biodegradable materials that can be recycled again to create new packaging products. These sustainable packaging options can have a very positive impact on the environment, and offers several great benefits for businesses:
Today’s range of environmentally friendly food packaging products are more varied than ever; are very lightweight yet durable; and efficiently designed. If you’re looking for environmentally friendly packaging in Australia, both of our Enviro and Bio Range here at Alpha Food Packaging is an excellent choice. Our large range includes Biodegradable paper coffee cups, paper straws, paper takeaway bags, Kraft takeaway food containers and bowls.
