Each and everyone one of us have and are still adding one drop at a time to this vast ocean of environmental disaster! One drop, every small action which seams inconsequential really, do slowly add up. Given the serious, widespread and long-lasting effects of our actions on the planet, any discussion on eco issues necessitates looking at not just 2020 but beyond.

This speaks volumes of the food and beverage industry and the urgent need to reduce the single-use plastic food packaging. One way in which food and beverage providers can effectively reduce their contribution to plastic waste is by using plant-based food packaging that are easily compostable and degradable and thus does not leave nasty footprints behind unlike plastic packaging.
