Compostable Bio-plastic Food Packaging Trays

     BioSustainable™️ food packaging trays present an environmentally responsible alternative to traditional plastic trays. Made of compostable bioplastics, they biodegrade into water, CO2, and humus without releasing any waste or microplastics. BioSustainable™️ trays offer a perfect solution to costly attempts of collecting, sorting, and recycling of traditional contaminated plastic trays. Unlike pulp trays, BioSustainable™️ trays are strong and durable, they do not absorb moisture from produce, and therefore they do not lose rigidity. Since they don’t absorb moisture, they also have a longer shelf life than pulp, and are more akin to regular plastic in that regard.

     Our products are customized with the addition of wood and cellulose fibers for a distinguished natural look, building trust in consumers who want a commitment to an eco-friendly approach. While single-use plastics like Styrofoam are banned or are starting to be banned in various places, switching to BioSustainable™️ allows you to stay ahead of the game and follow the current flow of an increasingly environmentally-friendly world.

How it works

venn

Paper vs. Plastic:

70% more pollution from production

80% more greenhouse gases 

50x more water pollutants

4x the energy usage

Pollution Stats:

Less than a 1/5 of all plastic is recycled globally

Paper accounts for 25% of landfill waste 

40% of plastic produced is single-use packaging

     Our trays are made out of compostable bioplastic, that encompasses many of the positive aspects of both pulp and plastic. Biosustainable™️ tested just as well regular plastic for food packaging. Since it doesn’t absorb moisture like pulp, it greatly reduces the speed of food spoilage and doesn’t become wet and easy to damage.

     Meanwhile, it also has the compostable benefits akin to pulp trays, and is made out of renewable resources instead of crude oil. Despite these organic materials though, bioplastic is made in a very similar fashion to regular plastic, and thus its production process does not have the same negative impact (deforestation, heavy pollution, etc.) as paper. Although bioplastic  is not recyclable the same way pulp and plastic are, as long as it is composted, its negative environmental impact is far smaller than any other alternative.
