Bio-based food packaging

by Green Plastics


Plastics News has a great article about new efforts to create standards and specifications for “bio-based” food packaging.

The main point of this is to prevent “greenwashing” and all of the false claims out there by some manufacturers that claim to be “green” or “biodegradable” when they really are not. They talk about ideas for certification and standards for labeling packaging at different levels (gold, silver, etc).

Ideally, they say, they want to work toward a world where we have three dumpster options: recyclable, compostable, and other trash.
