Green Packaging: Are Potatoes, Coconuts And Mushrooms The Way Of The Future? (PHOTOS)


The Huffington Post | Alden Wicker Posted: 11-17-10


Does seeing all that plastic packaging going in the trash every time you eat make you feel guilty? There are innovators out there who want to change that.

Using cutting edge technology, or just pulling from tradition, these companies and individuals are trying to reduce the chemicals used in our packaging, and the waste going in the landfill.

Walkers, which sells in the UK, is looking at using starch from unused potato peels to create a more eco-friendly packet.

The initiative is part of the Carbon Trust’s Carbon Reduction Label initiative. Walkers claims it has already cut the carbon footprint of its packaging by eight percent.
