Switching to a compostable food packaging is great.
But understanding its full production cycle is much more important when trying to reduce our impact on our environment.
Why Compostable Alternatives
We created Compostable Alternatives to make sustainability simple and transparent in the hospitality industry.
We support business owners and producers with truly compostable products that break down anywhere there is oxygen and micro-organisms.
Food packaging and kitchen consumables are essential but they cannot be re-used. Many alternatives claim to be environmentally friendly and easily degradable. But there is a lot of misinformation out there, as well as ambiguity in supply chains, and with 80% of councils not offering organic green waste services, it’s hard for businesses that want to do the right thing to do so.
So we are doing all the hard work so that you don’t have to. At Compostable Alternatives we manufacture and work with the most innovative compostable food packaging out there to support you in your sustainable journey.
In a recent survey of sustainable business owners, we found that they wished:
there was a reliable and ethical one-stop shop to source their home compostable solutions, saving them time and money
they didn’t have to order large quantity of products just to get a better deal (and not have to store boxes that can get damaged in storage)
they could avoid 6 months’ worth of supplies, improving their cash flow management
compostable materials were more affordable and available in small quantities
