It is obvious that plastic takeaway containers are no good for our environment. They are made using finite fossil resources and take decades to biodegrade. When littered they make their way into waterways and end up polluting our oceans and harming wildlife. As a more environmentally friendly substitute for single use plastic containers, BioPak is pleased to announce the introduction of a new range of takeaway container made from sugarcane pulp – a byproduct of the sugar refining industry.

Trash on your back

On the 22 June 2013, over 1,000 Australians take to the streets with their BioPak trash bags on their backs! The Sustainability News & Entertainment® USA (SNAE) ‘TRASH ON YOUR BACK 5 DAY CHALLENGE©’ is an initiative first conceived and delivered over 5 days from Earth Day 22nd April 2012 by SNAE Host & Founder, Diana Dehm and 20 pilot participants. The SNAE TRASH ON YOUR BACK 5 DAY CHALLENGE© was inspired by a radio interview Diana conducted with Drew Jones, Director of Climate Interactive, a World Energy Exercise at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and Dartmouth College.

We a had quick chat with a few of our customers at the Melbourne International Coffee Exhibition (MICE) 2013, and here are all the lovely things they had to say about us.
