A staggering and unsustainable 18 million tonnes of waste is landfilled in Australia every year. Landfills are not designed to promote the biodegradation of waste, only to store it. Organic material disposed of in this oxygen deprived environment will slowly decompose and release methane, a greenhouse gas 80 times more potent than CO2 and a significant contributor to global warming. BioPak products are either compostable or recyclable providing more options to divert waste from landfill. BioPak PLA bioplastic products are designed to stay inert in landfill – and this is a good thing.
