The population has seen explosive growth over the last few decades, which has also seen growing demand for cheap and durable products. Plastic is undoubtedly the clear choice. It’s lightweight, easily shaped, and extremely cost-effective compared to other materials like glass. While plastic is convenient for consumer and business use, it has a dark side – It takes hundreds of years to fully break down, which has led to devastating effects on the environment.
Much of the plastic that is produced every year is from single-use plastics that get thrown away or recycled after one time like plastic bags, lids, and straws. Fortunately, consumers are recognising that becoming more sustainable can have a positive impact on the environment. Research from the Center for Sustainable Business (CIB) have found that consumers are purchasing more sustainability-marketed products.
Here we’ll look at why consumers are shifting towards environmentally friendly products like biodegradable packaging.
BioGone recognises the need to address plastic pollution, so offer a wide selection of landfill-biodegradable products.
They Care About the Environment
Let’s start with the obvious – Consumers are learning about the harmful environmental effects of plastic. Many are changing their shopping habits as a result. One survey found that more consumers are actively seeking companies that are taking steps to reduce their environmental impact.
Whether you package goods for shipment as a manufacturer or ship products directly to consumers as a retailer, you can reduce your environmental impact by switching to more eco-friendly packaging. We offer a wide selection of biodegradable packaging products, including stretch film, pallet caps, packing tape, and self-adhesive envelopes.

They Want to Make a Positive Difference
Many people want to make a difference. For some, it could mean volunteering and making positive contributions to the community. For others, it could mean making more of an effort to reduce their plastic footprint. In fact, a study from PwC found that a third of European consumers prefer products with environmentally friendly packaging.
If you would like to switch to more eco-friendly packaging products in your business and make a positive difference, browse our selection of biodegradable packaging products. We offer discounts for bulk orders and even have sticker labels, so you can let your customers know the packaging material you use is landfill biodegradable.
BioGone offers a wide selection of common disposable plastic items, such as plastic bags and bin liners that biodegrade over a few years in a landfill.
They Want Plastic Packaging to Fully Decompose
Plastic offers a cost-effective way for manufacturers to package and protect their goods during transportation. But you can never be absolutely sure that those plastics are being recycled. It’s estimated that only 9 percent of global plastic waste is actually recycled.
Our packaging products use a patented additive that enables them to biodegrade when disposed in a microbe rich environment like a landfill. If you as a general consumer see our label on any kind of packaging, you can rest assured that they will biodegrade at least 20 times faster than traditional plastic products.
Our products can also be recycled, which should always be the option before landfill.

They Care About Future Generations
We should always aim to make the world a better place for future generations. That means taking steps now to set up our children and their children’s children for success. Consumers want biodegradable packaging because it shows that the companies that use them are making efforts to minimise their ecological footprint.
Making the switch over to biodegradable products won’t solve plastic pollution problems overnight. But it’s certainly a positive step in the right direction. If you’re looking for biodegradable packaging products, such as stretch film, pallet caps, packing tape, or wrap rolls, you can find them here from our online store.
