The campus has foreseen the practical use in term of pollution reduction, circular economy, and zero waste which could be improved by using biodegradable plastic bags.
Since TAPIOPLAST®inside is derived from cassava and it has been guaranteed 100% compostable within 90-120 days by microorganism in proper temperature and moisture content, and they leave no micro-plastic to environment, it is vital key to encourage realistic zero waste and promote sustainability in the larger scale.
