The Green Alliance recently held a seminar, in partnership with the National Non Food Crops Centre and WRAP on biodegradable and compostable packaging. These are increasingly on the shelves in our supermarkets - and thus in our bins. There are a number of important pre-conditions to ensuring that environmental benefits are maximised. These include ensuring the consumer is clear about what can be composted and how, the separate collection of compostable waste by local authorities, and the availability of appropriate technologies and end markets for composted materials.
