Bagasse Sugarcane Compostable Food Takeout Boxes

What is Bagasse?

Bagasse is a unique material that is the 100% pre-consumer recycled byproduct of making sugar. When sugarcane stalks are harvested, they are pressed to release juices that are made into sugar. Rather than throwing the used fibrous stalks away, the stalks are made into a paper-pulp substance called bagasse. Bamboo plants have renewable growth of 2-3 times per year making it a more sustainable source of raw material. Bagasse boxes have a durable molded construction that has a high heat tolerance and is very leak resistant. It is also safe for direct food contact. Bagasse is completely compostable and will break down and degrade within about 90 days in the proper composting environment. 

Eco-friendly food takeout packaging is possible with bagasse.

PLA is also a compostable and eco-friendly substance so it doesn't reduce the biodegradability of the boxes.
