We are having daily revelations in our sustainable packaging explorations. It really is a minefield and when you think you’ve had a win, you realise it may actually not be the move in the right direction you thought it was! This slightly disappointing aspect aside, we’re continuing in our quest!
Day 9 - we’ve come across a UK business that can help us with testing the products we’re thinking of using. They’re great at providing information and we’ve found out lots of useful stuff:
Day 10 - we find out about a bag made from sugar cane which, in theory, is 100% recyclable (but, then, as we previously said, everything - in theory - is recyclable!). It’s made from green polythene, and helps reduce greenhouse gases. But where can you recycle it? Another nice idea but no good if it can’t actually be recycled by 92%* of our customers. Might be worth exploring so we put it on the ‘maybe’ list.
The testing of items for biodegradability and compostability has piqued our interest so we have asked a testing company to ask how much it is. We will report back!
