New packaging can join food waste in the compost!

New packaging can join food waste in the compost!

A UK company is offering 100% compostable catering products and food packaging.

Vegware's low carbon products are made from renewable materials and can be recycled alongside food waste, solving the problem of not being able to recycle food-contaminated plastics.

So far this year, the company has already saved more than four million kilograms of carbon and prevented around three and a quarter million kilograms of waste going to landfill.

Each of the 250 products it manufactures, including tableware, napkins, cups and takeaway packaging, comes with an eco-audit showing the green benefits of the item compared to traditional versions.

The company also runs an environmental consultancy through which it advises other firms on how to reduce their carbon footprint and link up with their best-suited food waste recycling partner in the UK.

Current Vegware clients include various NHS units, UK Government offices and a number of independent cafes and delis.
