Plastic straws may only be used for a few minutes, but their negative effects on the environment last a lifetime (and then some). In 2018, plastic drinking straws have been in the media for all the wrong reasons with excessive consumption and disposal causing harm to gentle sea creatures, littering beaches around the world, to name a few.

Australians have a love affair with coffee, each year using an estimated 1 billion disposable coffee cups. That's approximately 2,700,000 paper cups tossed out every day. 

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. 

By 2050, there could be more plastic than fish in the ocean. The problem with plastic pollution starts long before it reaches our oceans and beaches and so must the solutions.

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.

BioPak will be trading as usual through the holiday season, closing only on the public holidays (25-26 Dec 2018 and 1 Jan 2019). Our warehouses close at 12 midday on 24 & 31 Dec.


No same day deliveries 24 Dec 2018 - 31 Jan 2018 – please allow extra time for deliveries during this period.

Plastic consumption is out of control and polluting our planet at a scale that has never been seen before. We can now see the devastating effect firsthand as plastic fragments litter every beach in the world. Wildlife ingest this plastic with lethal consequences and it’s making its way up our food chain and into our bodies. We can no longer ignore the problem and we should all be looking for solutions.
