To reduce food wastage we should only eat what we need and not throw the rest away reducing food wastage.

Biodegradable packaging is packaging that after use simply biodegrades harmlessly back into the earth. This helps significantly in reducing the amount of packaging that needs to go to landfill and in addition conserves energy as the biodegrading process does not require external energy. Two main biodegradable materials that can be used in packaging are paper and paperboard. These categories have many different types of each other.
