  You may have noticed that major supermarket brands and fast food chains are replacing some of their plastic food service packaging with another package that looks like cardboard. That is bagasse lunch box. Food service packaging represents a huge opportunity to move from traditional plastic packaging to a circular economy model and close the waste cycle by producing packaging from plants. These bagasse lunch boxes can be composted and returned to Earth as soil food, which can be used to grow more plants. Compost also helps improve soil quality and retain water, making the land more drought-resistant.

  Bagasse products
  Bagasse is a by-product of sugarcane juice extraction. In this process, the cane is crushed and the SAP is collected, leaving cane that can easily be turned into bagasse. Since bagasse is essentially sugarcane fiber, it can be used as pulp in the papermaking process instead of other fibers such as wood or straw. The use of bagasse as a pulp substitute is well implemented in tropical and subtropical climates where sugarcane production is high - including countries such as Argentina, China, Colombia, India, Iran and Thailand. Although bagasse can also be used as a fuel to sustain sugar mill processes, it has been found to be more suitable for papermaking due to its high water content.
  
  Environmental protection characteristics of bagasse lunch boxes
  Reusable materials - Since bagasse is a by-product of the sugarcane industry, reuse of bagasse in the papermaking process reduces the amount of waste generated by sugar mills. Being able to reuse the material to make paper products, rather than harvesting new materials for pulp, also reduces deforestation and makes the papermaking process more environmentally friendly.
  Easier to bleach - Because bagasse is easier to bleach than regular wood fibers commonly used in paper making, it requires less chlorine to achieve the brightness of printer or notebook paper. Bagasse is cooked to black pulp, which is washed three times to change color. The process of turning wood pulp, which is used to make paper, white is more complex and uses more chemicals, with a greater negative impact on the environment.
  Compostable products - Bagasse is commonly used to make paper products that are fully biodegradable within 90 days of composting.
  
  Reusable bagasse lunch boxes
  Sugarcane is a rapidly renewable and widely available resource. Bagasse packaging can further maximize the value of crops and conform to the principle of circular economy.
  Our bagasse lunch boxes are certified home compostable and industrial compostable. It will biodegrade in compost conditions in 30-90 days, leaving no toxic residue and producing nutrient-rich compost. This makes it the perfect packaging solution for catering services, as the packaging and any leftover food can go straight into the compost bin and be transferred from the landfill.
