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.
 

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.

BioPak Founder Richard Fine on the solution to the recycling crisis. Could a natural system of material recycling that returns valuable nutrients into the system be the answer? With a growing number of businesses choosing to use compostable packaging and more commercial composters keen to accept these products along with food waste, businesses are able to go plastic-free and reduce their waste to landfill.

The South Australian Government is considering banning single-use plastic products such as coffee cups with plastic lining, straws, and cutlery. According to an Australian Senate inquiry, single-use plastics could be banned by 2023.
