NIKU’s biodegradable packaging

June 18, 2021

Our team at NIKU Farms is dedicated to contributing to a healthier earth, and that doesn’t stop at our sustainable farming practices. Did you know that our packaging is entirely recyclable and biodegradable?

Okay, but did you know that you can actually use our Green Cell Foam insulation beyond tossing it in the blue bin?

Green Cell Foam is a unique, environmentally friendly material that is biodegradable made of non-GMO cornstarch. The foam works just as well as petroleum-based alternatives, but manufacturing it requires 70% less energy, and produces 80% less greenhouse gasses. 

Reusing and Disposing of our Biodegradable Packaging

Feeding Your Plants

Place large pieces of the Green Cell Foam into a bucket of water and let sit overnight. Pour the mixture onto your plants— it is a great plant food!

Burn It (Safely)

Green Cell Foam burns cleanly and safely in fireplaces and firepits, it’s also a great way to start your barbecue!

Down the Drain

Put small pieces in your sink and watch it “melt” safely down the drain; it biodegrades in both seawater and freshwater.


The liners are compostable in any compost facility – they’ll biodegrade in 60 days or less when in a moist soil environment.
