Most sushi trays are made from conventional plastic derived from finite fossil resources. With 9% of the world’s plastics actually getting recycled, we need a more sustainable alternative to sushi trays made from conventional single-use plastic.

That’s why we’ve created our certified compostable, carbon neutral sushi trays which are made from plants and provide a closed loop alternative to their conventional plastic counterparts. Now, sushi restaurants can serve their customers in compostable sushi containers mde from plants - made for the circular economy where there is no waste.

Waste-free events. DONE.

Whether it’s food and music festivals or conferences and seminars, whenever we hold an event waste is inevitably created. All to often, the packaging and food scraps left behind end up heading to landfill – even if they could have been composted or recycled instead.

But it doesn’t have to be this way – and local Port Macquarie business Doppio Or Nothing Espresso (DONE) have set out to prove that holding a zero waste to landfill event is possible even if local composting infrastructure is lacking. Here’s how they got it done.

In the age of corporate social responsibility, more and more emphasis is being placed on reducing the negative environmental outcomes of business activity, not just addressing issues of sustainability at a high level. These days, it’s not enough to simply installing a few recycling bins or spend some budget on enviro-focussed not-for-profits – a well-considered strategy for greening your business is required. Melbourne Business School – who has been ranked among the world's best by the Financial Times in its 2018 analysis of business schools by region – is leading the way by choosing the BioPak Compost Service to reduce their waste on campus and is diverting between 2,000 and 3,000 kilograms of compostable waste, that previously went to landfill, each month.

Press release seen on City of Sydney News on May 28, 2019 and commentary added by Richard Fine, founder and sustainability director of BioPak.

City of Sydney has launched a new business pledge that will dramatically reduce single-use plastics.

BioPak gives back

BioPak’s vision is a world without waste. Through its compost service, BioPak hopes to offer a circular economy solution that treats foodservice packaging and food scraps as resources, not waste.

Sustainable business growth is among the top objectives for leaders, and it’s hard to do it alone.

Building a talented team is one of the crucial elements to maintaining a competitive advantage and successfully scaling a business, but top talent know how in-demand they are, and if employers don’t position themselves well they might lose star employees.

Australia’s leading eco-friendly packaging company BioPak has soared to new heights by launching the world’s first ever zero-waste flight with Australian airline, Qantas Group. 

Flying from Sydney to Adelaide earlier today, the ground-breaking flight is part of the most ambitious environmental push by any airline, with BioPak at the helm in trialling this major zero-waste initiative.
 

BioPak founder Richard Fine has urged the Australian government to make a global commitment to the circular economy, saying it is "incredibly disappointing" that it is not on the top of parliament's agenda.

Fine spoke to PKN editor & publisher Lindy Hughson about the New Plastics Economy Global Commitment [Ellen McArthur Foundation], and what needs to be done to increase plastic recycling.
