About 150 Jasa Eco gift packs containing biodegradable products were distributed to the public on "No Plastic Day".
The bags were given by Wawasan TKH Holdings Bhd's subsidiary Greatpac Sdn Bhd staff and Segambut MP Lim Lip Eng at Taman Tun Dr Ismail market.
Greatpac has created the Jasa Eco brand biodegradable containers, plates and cutlery since February this year. The company is the first to successfully produce a completely biodegradable and environment-friendly product for food packaging in Malaysia.
"We are targeting the hawkers to use our products," said Greatpac senior manager Douglas Tan. "Compared with the normal styrofoam boxes, which costs 11 sen each, a biodegradable Jasa Eco packet costs only 5 to 6 sen."
Jasa Eco products are made from corn starch, palm and sugarcane fibre.

Just a correction, normal styrofoam costs 5-6sen and the biodegradable foam would be 10-11sen.

Also, our products are not made from sugarcane or palm fibre.
