Shotspresso, a local coffee beverage manufacturer and distributor in Melbourne, is now using more sustainable packaging solutions in their supply chain through a partnership with Biogone, an Australian eco-conscious company.
Biogone is offering a suite of packaging options that drive businesses to more environmentally conscious decisions.
Manufacturing and warehousing businesses around Australia use around five million tonnes of packaging material annually, which are discarded into landfills and waterways either by the end consumer or the establishment itself.
The only way to change this is for Australian businesses to make more sustainable packaging choices, without compromising on quality and safety of the products.
“It is fundamental that Australian businesses, regardless of size and reach, do their part in making plastic smart decisions,” Shotspresso managing director Jay said.
“I believe that all manufacturing and warehousing companies that use plastic packaging daily, should consider looking into more eco-friendly alternatives. Biogone provides high-quality biodegradable plastic packaging materials that we’ll be using for years to come.”
Biogone offers businesses like Shotspresso a one-stop-shop, with landfill-biodegradable tapes, pallet wrapping, bubble wrap, strapping and many other biodegradable packaging materials. The entire Biogone range is highly functional and has been meticulously handpicked from worldwide sources to offer the best biodegradable packaging products on the market.
Shotspresso now uses green pallet wrapping. When Shotspresso customers receive their delivery, they can see the business’ well-considered approach in using a more eco-plastic alternative and complying with the governments’ 2025 National Packaging Targets.
Landfill-biodegrade plastic can be recycled with other mainstream soft plastics and has REDcycle approval. It is also designed so that once the plastic can no longer be recycled, it can be disposed of in a general waste bin and once in a landfill, will biodegrade approximately 90 per cent faster than conventional plastic packaging materials. This biodegrades into an organic matter, producing a natural fertiliser and no microplastics.
The demand for biodegradable packaging materials within the industry has been steadily increasing, as small to medium-size businesses are looking at plastic responsible ways to package their products via Biogone.
“Biogone focuses on all possible sustainable elements in their business to reduce plastic waste,” Biogone co-founder Dr Ross Headifen said.
“With each product we create, we are aiming to reduce the plastic build-up in landfills. Incorporating Biogone landfill-biodegradable technology is like an insurance policy that will allow the plastic to biodegrade away when it is eventually disposed to a landfill.”
