This presentation will examine the various solutions currently available including paper, glass and bioplastics, and highlight our solution – a technology developed in the UK by a company called Symphony Environmental. This causes the plastic packaging to fully biodegrade in less than one year (conventional plastic can take up to 500 years!).What is a Natural Product and Can It Really be Effective?
