Sustain Compostable Packaging

We at London Bio Packaging aim to sell the most sustainable disposables on the market today – and that’s not always the same for every business. But don’t worry – we offer two ranges of eco food packaging, Sustain and Revive. With us, you’re never stuck with just one rigid option or range of packaging. Instead, you can choose the road to sustainability that better suits your business! To read more about what makes our packaging sustainable, take a peek at our FAQs – they’re pretty informative! The way we see it, there are two sides of the sustainability coin when it comes to disposable packaging: what is it made of and what can you do with it after use.

Our Sustain range was designed to check both of those boxes all while offering you the value, variety, and selection your business requires and customers expect. Sustain is completely renewable! It’s made from 100% renewable resources – plants – and is 100% commercially compostable where facilities exist. Pretty great, huh?

If you can believe it, our Sustain range is made completely from renewable resources (plants) – that means it is 100% oil-based plastic free!

Renewable resources are materials that can be, well, renewed. That means that once you take some for use, more can easily be replenished. So for example, our Sustain™ range is made from renewable resources like trees, corn-starch for bio-plastics, or crop by-products like sugarcane pulp – all sustainably grown and processed into the high-quality packaging you see in our shop.

By comparison, oil-based plastic is made from oil which is a finite resource – meaning, once we use the resource, there’s no getting it back. So, oil and other fossil fuels are limited. Take a look here at the main materials we use to make our packaging.

Sustain packaging is 100% compostable which means it’s designed to be collected and commercially composted with your food waste. Please do make sure you check with your local waste stream to ensure they have the processes in place to accept certified EN13432 food packaging.

Compostable means that a product will degrade into compost only under very specific and rigid criteria which are created in a commercial facility including heating the materials to certain temperature.

During composting, compostable products will break down into carbon dioxide (CO2), water, inorganic compounds and biomass which leaves no visible contaminants or toxic residue/substances.

After this process, the waste is turned into a nutrient dense mulch ideal for growing of more plants. Again, for a product to be called commercially compostable, it must be certified to EN13432 or its equivalent.

Tip: Despite common misconception, it is not biodegradable.
