Food and drink on the go has become so entrenched in our daily lives that it is hard to imagine a world without it – but we can partake in this convenient activity without harming the planet, by choosing vendors that use eco-friendly food packaging.

One manufacturer of such packaging is SOMA.  This Serbia-based biotech company works with fungi to create environmentally friendly packaging material such as BioPore – a biodegradable substitute for Styrofoam that is flame-resistant and provides thermal insulation and shock absorbency.  This makes it perfect for applications such as takeaway cups and containers, and for any packaging solution where Styrofoam has traditionally been used in the past.  The company also produces medicinal mushrooms and mushroom-based wellness products too…

Element, meanwhile, is a London-based eco-friendly packaging company.  It specialises in home-compostable, compostable and biodegradable products ranging from bowls and cups to chip containers, cutlery and sauce pots.  All of its products, which are sold in bulk (50 to 1,000 units), are made from bamboo paper, plant starch and other plant-based polymers, and are also brandable.  The company works with Trees For the Future, donating a percentage of proceeds to its tree-planting programmes.

And London Bio Packaging also offers a diverse range of eco food packaging.  It aims to enable businesses to choose the packaging most suitable to their demands, focusing on plant-based options that are compostable, as well as products made from 100% recycled materials.  It also sells in bulk – at least 1,000 units.  Its Revive range is made from recycled material and includes napkins and takeaway cartons.  Its Sustain range is plant-based, and includes compostable plates and bowls and carrier bags.  The company offers a custom printing service so buyers can brand these products.
