Compostable

Definition: Material that biodegrades in a commercial or home composting system according to relevant industry standards.

Compostable packaging uses materials that biodegrade in a given time frame under defined, controlled conditions. To claim a package is compostable, it must be certified to meet specific testing standards to ensure it will compost satisfactorily. 

Our range of 100% compostable bags are an eco-friendly alternative to traditional plastic bags. They offer a more sustainable packaging choice and are specifically designed to be sustainable from start to finish. Our compostable products are made from a natural polymer with bio-based content, a high-quality and versatile bioplastic of German company BASF, and printing inks made with water-based inks. 

Bioplastics are made with organic plant materials, they break down swiftly in a compost environment. Our compostable range are as durable as their standard polyethylene counterparts. The material properties are designed only fully to biodegrade under composting conditions.

Compostable packaging solutions are best suited for use in targeted applications where the packaging composts along with food waste or other organic material.
