How Compostable Packaging Can Help Solve Disposability

09 Jun 2022
The challenge with conventional flexible plastic packaging is that it is nearly impossible to technically recycle thin films and multilayered plastic packaging and it is surely isn’t economically viable to do so. Compostable plastic packaging addresses the challenges of plastic pollution from the design phase. It offers a packaging alternative that mimics perfectly the positive properties of a conventional plastic packaging such as moisture and oxygen barrier, shelf-life, lightweight design, and flexibility, but with a built-in circular solution for its end-of-use.
Inspired by nature’s perfect packaging, TIPA® created breakthrough packaging that undergoes the same biodegradation process as organic waste, just like an orange peel or walnut shells. TIPA® displaces conventional flexible plastic with fully compostable packaging such that plastic will no longer linger in landfills for hundreds of years, but will biodegrade within months in a sustainable end-of-life process. TIPA® solutions were designed with the goal of achieving a circular economy through an organic recycling process – composting.
