Compostable packaging from fish waste

Sustainable disposable packaging as an alternative to plastic in various applications, from shopping bags to packaging.
The circular material used comes from the processing of the fish industry, the designer has in fact intercepted various flows of waste fish such as skins and scales, trying to make the most of their potential, thanks to the flexibility and strength that characterizes them. Consistently with the approach of sustainability, it was consciously chosen to work only with plants that are part of the Sustainable Seafood Coalition, a partnership of companies in the United Kingdom that deals with ensuring responsible fishing to protect the oceans.
The material consists of 100% organic components, in addition to the proteins from fish waste, it includes agar made from red algae, which is used as a binder and gelling agent.
Laboratory tests and traction tests have shown that this innovative circular material, with the same thickness, is very resistant, therefore a valid alternative to LDPE (commonly used in plastic bags).
The packaging is compostable, its natural composition and derived exclusively from renewable sources, does not release harmful chemicals on the ground.
