Biodegradable Packaging is an eco-conscious form of packaging; typically made from compostable and biodegradable materials.
Eco-friendly packaging allows businesses to reduce their carbon footprint and decreases the amount of rubbish sent to landfill each year.
It is most often used in the food and beverage industry, where paper coffee cups and wooden cutlery are
replacing polystyrene and plastic respectively. They've even developed a compostable 'plastic' cup for cold beverages.
It's made from plant starch.
