Foam Packaging

New York City bans foam packaging

Following in the footsteps of San Franciso, Portland and Seattle, NYC mayor Bill De Blasio has passed a law banning the use of foam containers by food establishments. The plastic foam containers that the majority of New York’s ~50,000 food outlets currently use are not made from renewable resouces, do not biodegrade and cannot be recycled. The move to compostable packaging is a positive one, and with New York City’s large size it’s a major step towards a more sustainable disposable packaging future. Read More >

Sugar Cane takeaway clams

Our Sugar Cane clams are made from Sugarcane fibre after the extraction of juice. Sugarcane is abundant in nature, regenerating much faster than timber; it can be harvested annually, while timber can take decades. The clams are biodegradable, free of plastic additives and come in sizes from 14cm to 25cm. By switching to compostable Sugarcane products you are reducing our dependence on oil and non-renewable resources. You are also positively impacting the environment by ‘adding value’ to an otherwise wasted by-product of the sugar industry.

Bags

Go Bio with our Bag Pak

An estimated 500 billion to 1 trillion plastic bags are used worldwide every year. Plastic is non-biodegradable and is made from a non-renewable resource: oil. Friendlypak’s environmentally sound Bio Bags are made by using vegetable components such as starch, cellulose and vegetable oils and biodegradable polymer and natural plasticisers, which will fully compost according to all the international standards for compostable materials, including home compost certification.
