We’ve often wondered why something as perishable as food comes packaged in something as enduring as plastic. We only enjoy food for a couple of minutes, yet the packaging we leave behind lasts – and pollutes – for hundreds and thousands of years.
We founded Biodeck in 2017 because we wanted to give people a sustainable alternative to single-use, disposable plastic packaging. Our solution is packaging made from plant-based materials that are biodegradable and compostable.
Because our ambition is to leave the world better than we found it, we design everything around two key principles: sustainability and circular economy. We dream of a global ecosystem where everything is put to a new use, and nothing is wasted.
Our products are made from plant-based materials – namely rapidly regenerating resources such as cornstarch or sugar cane.
Environmentally friendly manufacturing
Compared to plastic products, which are derived from oil, the manufacturing process is way more environmentally friendly. Depending on the product category, carbon emissions can be 30% to 75% lower.
Biodegradable & compostable packaging
Once they’ve been used, our products can be composted – some at home, some in industrial composting facilities. Because they’re effectively organic waste, they’re the only form of packaging that can be composted alongside food waste.
Part of nature’s life cycle
The resulting compost material is a slow-release fertilizer that can be used in agriculture. Thus, our products can contribute to a natural lifecycle – making sure that everything that comes from nature can return to nature, without breaking anything in the process.
All of our products comply with the EU regulations for biodegradable and compostable products, and we’ve got every required quality certification.
Each and every one of us has an impact on the environment, and we believe simple choices can make a difference – decisions that may appear to be small, but have a potentially huge impact. Try to reuse the things you own as much as possible, and when that’s not an option, choose the sustainable product. Today there are more and more sustainable options on the market, so it’s really up to us to make the environment an absolute priority.
