What’s the least biodegradable form of packaging?Posted on March 14, 2012 by DrRossH in Plastic Waste News
As stated in the article;
In the event that plastic products are simply sent to the landfill, they will still take years and years to completely degrade and become a part of the earth. This is why it is much better to recycle and ensure the plastic is being put to good use, rather than dumped in a landfill for years. Paper and cardboard packaging supplies are much more biodegradable and eco-friendly regardless of how they are handled. If you are truly in need of plastic or other chemical-based packing materials for your shipments, you should ensure that you use them sparingly and recycle them accordingly to get the most out of your packing and shipping.
With so many different packaging materials out there to choose from, it isn’t difficult for you to find materials that will suit your needs. Whether you need a lot of materials to protect your items or just something unique that allows your items to stand out, you can find plenty of solutions that are eco-friendly and biodegradable. If you are going to use plastic, make sure that it can be discarded accordingly or that it has a high biodegradability so that you aren’t using materials that are harmful to the environment.
