New Zealand's Infrastructure

One of the main issues facing New Zealand is not the availability of alternative sustainable packaging products, but the means and capabilities to process them at the end of their lifecycle. Without the correct infrastructure and facilities to process these types of packaging, they end up sitting in a landfill waiting to decompose.

Although these items may be compostable or bio-degradable, they are no better for the environment sitting in a landfill since they won't break down because of incorrect conditions required to do so including temperature, humidity and sunlight levels.
