Topic - Water & Alternative Packaging
To prevent increasing amounts of plastic ending up in our ocean and alarming reports stating "by 2050 there will be more plastic than fish in our ocean", supporting businesses looking for alternative solutions to single-use plastic, with certified home compostable products that regenerate our soil is key.
