Infographic: Bagasse Versus Plastic
Check out this infographic (click on the thumbnail to enlarge) that covers each materials’ process, and see which one you think is better for the environment. This infographic shows it’s a lot easier to go green than you think.
The innovation of plastic saw the beginning of an exciting era for the world of packaging. But with this era came another one – plastic pollution. The evironmental impact of plastic was only realised too late. Plastic does not biodegrade, but fills areas of land with pollution.
However, the discovery of bagasse has revolutionised the packaging industry. It means that environmentally friendly food packaging can be manufactured. It uses sustainable materials and is eco friendly. We still need to be conscious about what we throw away and where, but biodegradable packaging means we can create a cleaner future.
The benefits of bagasse – from beginning to end – far outweigh plastic, and the products are just as good as conventional plastic products, something no other ‘alternative’ material can boast.
