Many of us are concerned about the environment, and whether we like it or not, all our activities have some form of environmental impact. Our busy lifestyles make eating on the go and take-out part of our everyday lives, and that puts focus on single-use packaging. So what is the most sustainable alternative?
When it comes to packaging, many believe that all plastic is harmful and that compostable alternatives (for example bagasse, molded fiber and plant-based plastics) are more environmentally friendly. However, scientific research shows that post-consumer recycled PET, which we use in our BOTTLEBOX® containers, have a lower carbon footprint and reduces greenhouse gas emissions by 60% vs virgin PET, 30% vs plant-based plastics and 90% vs bagasse. We will go deeper into that below, but first you can watch our video:
