Plastic is everywhere. Every year over 300 million tonnes of it are produced. Annual global plastic production has increased by 20 times since 1950, and is projected to triple by 2050.
Not surprisingly, this is resulting in huge amounts of plastic pollution in oceans and on land. Change is urgently needed. But for many businesses and procurement teams, understanding which packaging materials are the most environmentally friendly in their particular case is not a simple task.
If you’ve been looking into sustainable and renewable food packaging, you’ve probably heard of fiber. Fiber food packaging products are some of the most environmentally-friendly options out there. Fiber-based packaging products are sustainable and comparable to traditional products in both function and aesthetics.
Fiber packaging is produced with reusable, renewable, or biodegradable materials. It’s primarily used in the construction, chemical, and food and beverage industries. Fiber packaging can be made from different materials. These include recycled content (such as newspaper and cardboard) or natural fibers such as wood pulp, bamboo, bagasse, and wheat straw, these materials use 10 times less energy to produce than tree-based materials and are the most eco-friendly options.
