Paper Vs Plastic
Published date: 20 October 2020
FOR THE SAKE OF THE PLANET WE'RE MOVING FROM COMPOSTABLE BAGS TO RECYCLABLE PLASTIC.
When we first created Yora, we spend an enormous amount of time and effort trying to find the most eco-friendly packaging for our lovely food. We settled on compostable bags because they seemed like the best option at the time, but we've since realised that for now at least our new recyclable plastic bags will protect our food better, and on balance, are better for the environment in the long run.
Compostable bags have a biodegradable layer made from PLA which means they can’t be recycled.
They are also only compostable industrially which isn’t available to everybody.
SHORTER SHELF LIFE
Only 12 months shelf life
If these bags get rained on while in transit, it can ruin the product which means more wastage.
30% heavier than plastic which all adds up when transporting the product.
Most pet food bags are made from layers of different plastics... our clever new bags are made from layers of the same plastic which means they are totally recyclable! They are fully recyclable wherever you recycle your carrier bags (kerbside, recycling centers or your local supermarket).
LONGER SHELF LIFE
15 months shelf life = less product wastage.
These bags keep Yora fresh through freezing cold winters or blazing hot summers!
LIGHT & NIMBLE
30% lighter than paper which means less carbon when transporting.
