IL PACKAGING


Particular attention was also paid to the materials used for the packaging, choosing a special paper produced with algae present in excess on the bottom of the Venice lagoon and with 50% of FSC cellulose, from controlled forests.
The use of algae allows both to preserve the sea of the lagoon, keeping it clean, and to replace a part of the cellulose coming from trees with a natural alternative resource.
The transparent bag that protects the product is eco-sustainable because it is made with over 80% of vegetable starches that make it biodegradable and compostable.
