At The Mend Packaging, we’re passionate about educating our communities on the importance of waste segregation practices. Which leads us to aMEND: our student volunteer program designed to spread awareness about recycling practices PAN-India. Our students care deeply about the environment and making a change, no matter how small. They work with our waste management partners, host eco-friendly workshops and use digital media to dwell out important information on the need for a more sustainable life.
aMEND is launching another exciting project soon: an annual Green Summit. The summit will act as a hackathon to conceptualise and solve sustainable issues in our field. Whether that’s coming up with innovative packaging solutions that benefit the environment, brainstorming new eco-friendly materials such as biodegradable shipping boxes or eco friendly polybags, or solving for excess packaging waste; aMEND will bring together minds across various fields and occupations to solve the problems in our industry as pertains to sustainability.

Industrial composting can deal with a broader range of compostable products and operates in a highly controlled setting with specific temperatures and conditions. Industrial composting is able to apply a far higher temperature to the already pre-processed packaging material. The high heat breaks the packaging down even further, hastening the decomposition.
