BERLIN (Reuters) – the German food delivery company Delivery Hero on Thursday announced an investment in biodegradable packaging from the manufacturer of Bio-Lutions as governments and companies around the world aim to reduce plastic waste.

Hamburg-based company Bio-Lutions International AG manufactures disposable tableware products which are compostable and biodegradable, according to its website.

“Improving the way to get the package delivered food sustainably with the help of Bio-Lutions will enable us to help reduce our carbon footprint,” Delivery Hero CEO Niklas Oestberg said in a statement.

Delivery Hero and Bio-Lutions has no information about the terms of the deal.

Deputies from the cities in the USA banned plastic straws, while the single-use plastic items such as straws, forks and knives be banned in the European Union by 2021.
