While compostable packaging is not a silver bullet for our pollution problems, it’s a positive step away from single-use and non biodegradable options, towards a world where the packaging that’s used on our food can be fed back into the loop.

These seven small food and drink brands are showing the bigger players that the technology is out there and that it is time we turn the tide on our plastic addiction and switch to more sustainable compostable packaging.
