Sugarcane is a renewable resource. Bagasse is the fibrous substance that remains after juicing. Bagasse waste is often burned in the fields when not in use, causing pollution. Instead of discarding or burning the sugarcane stems, the pulp is made into a paper-like substance called bagasse. Bagasse can be formed into different shapes and products, making it ideal for food service packaging. We use bagasse to manufacture eco-friendly food service products as an alternative to traditional paper, plastic and Styrofoam products. Sugarcane bagasse packaging also requires less energy from manufacturers than plastic products, making its production more energy efficient.
By using sugarcane bagasse packaging, we are able to help reduce pollution and energy consumption. Bagasse packaging such as bagasse pans, bowls, compartment trays and food containers is a safer and more environmentally friendly alternative for the food service industry. Bagasse packaging typically biodegrades within 90 days; plastic takes up to 400 years to degrade, and Styrofoam never degrades! The rate of decomposition depends on the compost conditions - temperature, turnover, humidity, etc. Generally, they biodegrade faster if they are broken down into smaller pieces.
Sugarcane bagasse packaging reduces costs: The sugarcane material is highly recyclable, allowing businesses to reuse the material multiple times.
Sugarcane bagasse packaging is sustainable: As your business begins to rely on materials made from renewable resources, it will make your business more sustainable in the long run. Thus, giving you an edge over your competitors.

Sustainability will reduce negative impacts on the environment and community residents. Sustainability can also enhance a company's brand image.
