There are many growing concerns that are arising as a factor of climate change; one of these is waste and the breakdown of plastics in the natural environment. Cornware, a UK based company, are tackling this concern by producing biodegradable disposable tableware and carrier bags. Biodegradable plastics that are used in food packaging breakdown naturally into organic agents, from exposure to natural environmental factors such as heat and moisture. Traditional plastics are made using petroleum whereas biodegradable plastics are normally made using plant bases such as corn. Luckily here at Hugh Jordan, we have you covered for disposable biodegradable products from Cornware so that you can be environmentally friendly.
Composting biodegradable plastics along with traditional biodegradable paper products means they can be turned into rich humic material, which can improve water and nutrient retention and help grow healthier plants with less need for chemical fertilizers and pesticides.
Biodegradable plastic production processes take 65 percent less energy than required to produce petroleum-based plastics making biodegradable plastics the top energy-efficient choice. Biodegradable products are made from renewable resources like corn, sugar cane and potato starch instead of oil like this biodegradable range of disposable containers made from Corn on our website.
Biodegradable plastic consumer products produce 68 percent less greenhouse gasses than petroleum-based plastic products. Manufacturing biodegradable consumer products produces far less pollution. Because the products can break back down into nontoxic components, they don't cause dangerous chemical leachate that can poison water or offgassing that can pollute the air.
