Plastic straws may only be used for a few minutes, but their negative effects on the environment last a lifetime (and then some).

2018 has been a year of big commitments! We are proud to announce that BioPak has joined as a signatory to the New Zealand Plastic Packaging Declaration. BioPak is dedicated to stopping plastic pollution and we’re doing our part by offering compostable alternatives (made from rapidly renewable, sustainably sourced materials) to fossil fuel-based plastic used in foodservice.

We believe that working side-by-side, businesses and governments can tackle plastic pollution at the source. We have signed the Ellen MacArthur Foundation’s New Plastics Economy Global Commitment to stop plastic pollution.
