Our trays are compostable. What does that mean exactly?
Eko friendly packaging
by definition can be easily recycled, is safe for environment and people and is made out of recycled resins. It has minimal impact on energy usage and natural resources. Because eko friendly products are made of recycled materials, they are often not food safe. You need “virgin materials” as resins to reach food safety.
Biodegradable packaging breaks down and returns to nature, a short time after going to waste, normally within 1 year.
is identical to biodegradable packaging, but is has an extra feature. Not only does it break down within 45-60 days, it also creates compost which is full of nutrients and very good for plants and earth. Compostable is biodegradable with a bonus!
The place for plastic packaging
is not in the environment. Unfortunately, in some applications (such as food needing shelf life), plastic cannot be made biodegradable. Barrier plastics are still needed to keep food longer and fresher and it’s economically not feasible (yet) to work with biodegradable barrier plastics. But where possible, we should keep plastic where it should be, in the circular economy where it can be used again and again, recycled or even used as compost, such as our Eko Pak trays.
