Replace the plastic bag with a better bag! Kate Bezar, The Better Packaging Company

Episode Summary

The Better Packaging Company does just what you think it should: makes plastic packaging that’s compostable in your own backyard.

Episode Notes

 Starting with replacing those awful one-use plastic courier bags, the company now offers alternatives to plastic gloves, gift wrap, sticky labels and bags of all sort and is exporting its plant-based products in Australia, Europe, China and USA. But what does compostable mean, is it the same as biodegradable what happens when you don’t have a compost bin – and does plant-based plastic just replace one set of problems with another? Vincent is joined by co-founder The Better Packaging Company, Kate Bezar, which recently was named a finalist in the Sustainable Business Awards.
