In September, New Zealand-based company The Better Packaging Co. said it was eyeing growth in the beauty industry as companies faced an acceleration in e-commerce — and plastic waste generation – in light of the COVID-19 crisis.
The Better Packaging Co. is a sustainable packaging company founded by Rebecca Percasky and Kate Bezar that helps companies reduce its reliance on plastic with its range of sustainable packaging.
The firm has two main product lines, the first is the comPOST range that is certified AS 5810-2010 for Home Composting.
This means the packaging can be broken down in a home compost within 180 days and is worm friendly.
