A greater awareness for improved sustainability and climate change action has finally resulted in the regulation and banning of single-use plastics access several places the world over. And not a minute too soon. While most industries across the globe have benefitted including the earth, the food packaging industry has had to deal with certain issues like making the switch to more sustainable options while bringing about innovation in packaging.
In the race to reduce plastic pollution, most cafes and restaurants have made the switch from plastic to sugarcane-pulp based packaging instead. Sugarcane, is a native crop of India, and a versatile plant that provides sugar and bio-fuel. Most often, the cane is used for the extraction of the juice. However it also produces a fiber called Bagasse which is an important ingredient used in the manufacture of sugarcane pulp based packaging.
Bagasse is biodegradable and has plenty of benefits, ranging from high-temperature tolerance, excellent durability, and it is compostable too. This is the reason why not only it is used as a key ingredient for eco-friendly packaging but also to produce biodegradable disposable tableware.
Quit Plastic is one such company that uses sugarcane bagasse to manufacture sustainable tableware and crockery cutlery for a greener planet. They manufacture bowls, plates, trays, forks, spoons, knives and more all sing a sustainable and eco-friendly product made from sugarcane called sugarcane bagasse. This material has high structural stability and can be reused, heated, warmed and frozen at will making it an ideal choice for sustainable living.
