Why do we recycle less than 20% of our waste? When food waste is disposed of with packaging, it can’t be composted; when packaging waste is contaminated with food, it can’t be recycled - therefore most of our food and packaging waste ends up in landfill. To solve this issue we use compostable packaging so both food and packaging can avoid landfill and be composted together! FRIENDLYPAK has the largest range of compostable products guaranteed not to last. After use, our products can be returned to the Earth, saving landfill, litter and pollution, and becoming part of the Circular Economy making zero waste possible.
