GreenHome is SA’s leading distributor of eco friendly food packaging. Our comprehensive range includes coffee cups, cold drink cups, a variety of takeaway boxes and clamshells, plates, bowls, knives, forks, bags, deli wraps and many more. GreenHome’s food packaging comes from nature and returns to nature after use. It is made from renewable plant based raw materials such as sugar cane waste fibers, maize, potato starches and recycled paper. Excellent – a low impact product. After use it can be placed in compost bins and will completely biodegrade into healthy compost for more plants to grow. Even better – a positive impact! Even if it does end up in the bin, it will biodegrade into natural components and won’t sit around for generations after it was used.
