We decided to use cassava starch based bioplastic that gives our Energy Bites a longer shelf life while staying true to our mission for sustainability.
The packaging material consists of around 40% cassava starch and around 60% polyethylene and polyactic acid (aka a 'bioplastic').
The idea behind bioplastics is that the biobased content, in this case the cassava starch, accelerates the biodegration of the material - from tens of years of conventional plastic to only months of bioplastic.

And please be reminded to only dispose your bioplastic wrapper in your organic waste.
