As more and more people are increasingly aware of the environment and the impact items like traditional plastic have on waterways, soil and even wildlife, looking for a change is so demanding. But when it comes to how we package our food, is there a safer option for us and the environment?


Compostable Plastic Bags(Food Packaging) offers a great and safe way for people to package and carry their food in an environmentally friendly way. This is due to the plant-based materials that make up the compostable item and the eco-friendly way that it decomposes into natural matter.

When Would You Store Food in a Compostable Packaging?


Compostable bags are not as good at holding wet or heavy substances because they are composed of natural materials like corn, potato and tapioca. This means that you can use it to carry food for a short time but you would need to move the food to another stronger bag soon after.


You could also store food and garden waste in a compostable bag to ensure that the bag decomposes into compost together with the garbage. But on the other hand, meat, fish and dairy products may attract rats. So its not ideal to pop these into a compostable packaging.
