Whether we accept it or not, plastics has become an integral part of our lives. We are not only using it in our personal use but also in manufacturing, distribution and packaging.
Do you know around 60% or plastic worldwide is used in food packaging. That means that of the 380 million metric tons of plastics produced in 2015, 228 million metric tons were food packaging alone.
But because of thios excessive usage of plastics not only us but also animals, nature and our planet it paying a good cost for it. We are playing with our healthy and with our futures.
Due to the environmental and human health effects of nondegradable plastic packaging, many people are fighting to drastically reduce plastic production and increase recycling — as well as promote more sustainable food packaging.
Why Sustainable food packaging are important?
Plastics are a particular concern because of their accumulation in the oceans and landfills, the generation of microplastics and the transfer of chemicals from food packaging to foods.
In addition to the chemicals that are intentionally used to produce plastics, many non-intentionally added substances (NIAS) are found in food packages. These chemicals pose toxicity and risk for human lives.
Yet, environmentally friendly packaging alternatives are becoming ever more widespread.
These eco-friendly food packages often use sustainable bioplastics like hemp.
Hemp bioplastics has proven its worth by the many products it offers from years. We are no longer surprised by the benefits hemp has to offer, even in this case too it came up as a savior for us by providing us the solution to the plastic problem and i.e., Hemp bioplastics.
Why Hemp Bioplastiocs?
Hemp plastic, is fully biodegradable and can decompose in as little as 3-6 months in the right environment. For comparison: A conventional plastic water bottle can take up to 500 years to decompose.
Furthermore, hemp grown on toxic soil absorbs the toxins but does not release any toxins into the air itself. Another benefit of hemp plastic is that it can be recycled as many times as is required.
Thus, Hemp bioplastics is the best substitute for plastics.
Petroleum-based food packaging accumulates in the environment and poses numerous health risks, including metabolic disorders and even cancer.
While it may be impossible to completely avoid these plastics, choosing eco-friendly food packaging that’s biodegradable, less toxic, and recyclable is a great step toward mitigating plastics’ harmful effects on your health and the environment.
Pay your attention here!
We at hemptology understand the alarming situation, which is why we’ve taken a few steps to recover our losses.
We are trying ti change this situation with hemp bioplastics. It is a natural alternative to man made plastics. We just need your little help to scale up this cause. Your little support can do wonders.
