Take care of nature through eco-friendly packaging
As we are always careful to hang our clothes on the hanger or to wipe away dust from inside the house, the same care and attention must be paid to the outside, because the environment is also our home, only bigger. A better awareness of the fact that our daily activities can be carried out in harmony with nature, has led to the creation of biodegradable and compostable packaging.
Nowadays, more and more home delivery restaurants are replacing their plastic containers with harmless ones, which are a testament to the increasingly responsible behavior and love of people everywhere for the environment. The same goes for “to go” cafes where, with a touch of creativity, you can outline various designs and prints, worthy of a fashion show of coffee glasses gathered from all over the world. Soy-based ink or other vegetable products can be used for decoration.
Designed to return to nature after its purpose, biodegradable and compostable packaging are not one and the same. However, they are made using highly renewable resources, such as the fibers of certain plants. During manufacturing, carbon emissions are much lower.
Biodegradability refers to the superpower of a material to decompose in a short time, under the action of hard, hard-working microorganisms. On the other hand, compostable packaging requires processing either at home, in optimal light or wind conditions, for example, or in a specialized composting center. The final product, called compost / fertilizer, returns to the soil as nutrients.
From our kitchen, the dishes start on the road in electric cars or … on a bicycle!
And because every decision is made with a view to a better and cleaner world, we use 100% compostable packaging made of paper and sugar cane pulp.
And when it comes to eco-friendly packaging options, in general, researchers have
It has been discovered that cornstarch has plastic-like properties, making it suitable for lightweight bags, packaging of all kinds, now used even for packaging gadgets. They do not contain harmful chemicals and, after composting, can be used as fertilizer in agriculture.
We must not forget the mushrooms, often used as a basic ingredient for many vegan products, not just food. The mycelium of mushrooms, in combination with other components, acts as a glue to bind them together. In addition, such containers decompose very quickly, resulting in organic matter. Another innovation is the use of algae. In addition to the purpose they already serve in the kitchen, it has been discovered that the gelatinous substance they contain can also be used in the manufacture of eco-friendly packaging.
Now that we may be one step closer to understanding that we can do almost anything, keeping the world clean, we encourage you to recycle as much as you can. Plastic, so used today, decomposes in hundreds of years even, making the Earth more difficult and constantly polluting.
Thanks to rapidly evolving technologies, we can only hope for a greener and brighter future, where plastic affects our lives as little or not at all.
