Zero waste is a very close idea. We live faster and faster, more comfortable, and all this at the expense of the amount of rubbish generated. Plastic bags and bags are pressed at every opportunity.
For the producer of organic food is a big challenge. In something we have to pack our products to keep them fresh. I have been feeling bad for the last few years, packing our products in the packaging of closed plastic doypacks. I was looking for a suitable solution for a long time.
Someone may say that this path is so simple. Pack everything in paper and the matter settled !!
In my opinion, in most cases, it is the most usual eye-dressing. Products packed in paper are usually packed in paper covered with foil from the inside. From the outside it looks great, eco, but in practice it is even worse solution than plastic packaging.
Here, by the way, I must point out that we can not use only paper packaging. They do not provide enough barrier and do not protect most products enough. In addition, they do not work well for slightly moist products such as dried fruits that would soak the packaging.
The only solution that I think works well is a glass jar.
