Two UK farmers create compostable crisp packets

Last month a protest by UK potato chip consumers against Walkers, the country’s number one crisp manufacturers, over its failure to introduce recyclable packaging, was followed by the company launching a new recycling initiative. But two British potato farmers say they have an even better idea. Instead of turning metabolised, film-coated, crisp packets into other plastic items as Walkers plans Sean Mason and Mark Green from Hereford have launched their own range of the popular snack inside fully compostable packaging. Their Two Farmers range uses packets made from cellulose sourced from sustainably grown eucalyptus trees. Once put into a home composter the packets should degrade in six months.
