Here we will discuss different types of food packaging
In recent years, there has been a massive increase in the number of biodegradable and compostable packaging options available. 
 
To reduce the amount of plastic that ends up in our oceans, you will need to ensure that your food packaging is either made from plant-based materials or compostable. 
 
As we know biodegradable food packaging is a type of material used to protect and keep foods fresh. They are often made from renewable resources such as corn, sugar cane, palm trees, soybeans, bamboo and wheat.
 
        Biodegradable Food Packaging for food can be made from plant-based materials or compostable materials. But the most common type of packaging is plastic which is made from petroleum. 
 
·        Plastic cannot be recycled, it can only be repurposed into other products that are not food based. Other less common types of packaging are made from paper, cardboard and even metals.
 
·        Plastic is the most common type of packaging for food products. Plastic does not biodegrade naturally; it can only be broken down by microbes or chemical processes in landfills.
 
·        According to the U.S Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), plastic packaging is one of the top six most common materials found in landfills. The EPA estimates that about 6 million tons of plastic waste are generated each year. 
 
·        Plastic packaging has many benefits, such as its durability and flexibility, but it can also be harmful to our environment if not recycled properly.
