What’s so good about Sustain™ and Revive™ if they don’t always get recycled or composted?

By |2018-06-19T14:21:05+01:00June 19th, 2018|, , , |

When determining whether a product is sustainable or not, we like to look at the sustainability of both the materials used to make it and how it can be disposed. Both Revive™ and Sustain™ are made from sustainable materials. Whether you choose Revive, made from recycled plastic, or Sustain, made from renewable resources (plants!), you [...]

Why do you still sell compostable packaging if there aren’t many commercial composters?

Did you know Henry Ford invented the motor before there were proper roads? Progress doesn’t happen all at once and it requires a series of compounded events to happen. Today, the compostable products exist – and not just in our café packaging, but they also exist in supermarket packaging like fruit stickers, grocery bags, etc.. [...]

Why does London Bio Packaging believe in compostable packaging?

What’s great about composting is that it also takes care of food waste. As you know, along with plastics and single-use packaging, food waste is one of the most important topics when it comes to sustainability and climate change. You could see compostable disposables as a two-birds-one-stone solution. There’s also no concern of food contamination [...]

If I choose Sustain™ for its renewable resources, but do not have the ability to get my packaging composted, where should my customers bin their used packaging?

By |2018-06-19T14:16:54+01:00June 19th, 2018||

In this case, the packaging should go into the General Waste bin. It’s certainly not ideal, but it’s significantly better than littering or contaminating the recycling bin. We always tell our customers that if you can’t reach the best solution, at least aim for better. Because Sustain™ is made from renewable resources it’s a much [...]

I’m worried my compostable packaging is going to landfill. If so, am I still making the right environmental choice?

By |2018-06-19T14:15:44+01:00June 19th, 2018|, |

Through our two Sustain™ and Revive™ ranges we are able to match the most sustainable packaging to our customers waste management capability. If you have better recycling available to you over composting, we’d encourage you to consider Revive™. But if you have no option to recycle or compost, we like to remind our customers about [...]

Doesn’t some compostable packaging land in landfill?

By |2018-06-19T14:14:40+01:00June 19th, 2018||

Unfortunately this can and does happen due to lack of local packaging composters and appropriate collection services. It makes us genuinely sad if we learn our packaging goes to landfill. We see it as a wasted resource! Gold shouldn’t go to landfill, neither should our packaging (yes, we’re that obsessed with our packaging). This is [...]

Are there any composters that take compostable packaging today?

By |2018-06-19T14:13:25+01:00June 19th, 2018||

Well, the composting infrastructure in the UK is in its infancy. Today, there are very few commercial composters that will actually accept compostable packaging. Across environmentally minded packaging suppliers, users, national and local government, efforts are being made to find a solution. The big reason which keeps the composting bird stuck on the runway is [...]

What happens to your Sustain products if they end up in the ocean?

By |2018-06-19T14:10:09+01:00June 19th, 2018|, |

They stay there. It’s a problem. We don’t like it. And it’s the same when we litter the land with anything too. Our Sustain™ products however are not designed to end up in the natural environment and not even in a landfill. They are designed for a very specific waste stream for a very specific [...]

Shouldn’t you sell products that dissolve in nature?

By |2018-06-19T14:07:17+01:00June 19th, 2018|, |

We believe that creating products that would naturally break down in our oceans or parks over time is sidestepping the issue completely. We don’t want to look for an excuse to litter, we want to eliminate litter completely! Thus we ask you a question in return: shouldn’t we be seeking ways to eliminate rubbish seeping [...]

Will your Sustain products dissolve in the ocean?

By |2018-06-19T13:52:14+01:00June 19th, 2018|, |

No, no, no. Our Sustain products are designed to break down only within the commercial composting facilities. Despite common misconception, compostable products do not dissolve in water. The benefits of our products when thinking about the ocean, is that they all have sustainable means of disposal and can turn into precious resource (either compost or [...]
