All over the world, hundreds of governments and environment protection organisations are actively pursuing banning of single use plastics. The oceans are practically jam packed with plastic waste, so are the land fills. China and many other countries are now refusing waste dumping on their land, and thus for small island countries like the United Kingdom, plastic waste is becoming a serious concern.
We at Scyphus, have been actively promoting BioBoard ™ based Biodegradable an Compostable Paper Cups and other Packaging Products too. In recent years, the last one year and a little more to be precise, response has been good and customers are increasingly asking for Biodegradable Paper Cups and other Packaging Products.
Now, to clarify, paper packaging that doesn’t need to be heat or water proof are biodegradable naturally, since they don’t need the thin PE plastic coating on their inside, the concern is with packaging that requires plastic lining for water or moisture proofing, that is where the BioBoard ™ comes in. The BioBoard ™ is a biodegradable PLA ( made from corn starch ) Bio Plastic coated paper board of the highest quality. and thus is 100% biodegradable, unlike the PE plastic coated paper that requires separation of the plastic barrier before it can be recycled.
On another note, our products are not just Biodegradable, they are responsible products at several levels. We don’t just print and manufacture your packaging, we ensure that you can showcase your brand as a responsible and green product too. We obtain the papers from FSC and PEFC certified paper mills only. These mills follow sustainable forestry and don’t allow depletion of forest cover by planting special trees that grow quickly and planned lumbering.
You can proudly display, sustainable and biodegradable icons on your products.
Printed Packaging instead of generic boxes and bags, are no more limited to luxury products, they have become a necessity, for brand and product promotion, brand identity and even for providing mandatory product information.
