As businesses are starting to disavow single-use plastics and countries are even attempting to ban them — Canada might be initiating change to do so by 2021, the demand for biodegradable and waste-free packaging is skyrocketing. Many firms and designers are troubleshooting with different materials to discover the most convenient, affordable, durable, and quality-oriented option.
Polish company MakeGrowLab's waste-free packaging, for example, makes use of agricultural by-products, "turning bio-waste into bio-material." The studio's wraps have a good oxygen barrier, are home-compostable, and insoluble in water. In addition to that, they are completely edible.
MakeGrowLab offers its waste-free packaging in four silhouettes — a bag, a tray, a sachet, and a bowl. Due to popular demand, the products are sold out and the company has put a halt on production until it moves to a bigger facility.
