Compostable and Biodegradable Greeting Card Bags

Clear Biodegradable Bags for Greeting Cards made from 30mu Nativia® PLA film

Nativia® film is made from renewable resources - PLA bio-based resin is sourced from corn or other sources such as sugar beet and potatoes among others). It is also Vegan friendly, as is the ink used to print on them

The film is fully compostable acording to the EN13432 standard and has achieved the OK BIOBASED certificate from Vincotte. This certification means that you can be sure that it will break down quite quickly into carbon dioxide, water and biomass by microbial digestion in the right conditions

UK Food Safe & Eco-Friendly Compostable Bags

Greeting card bags made from Nativia ® are also Food Safe as well as being Eco-friendly and have excellent properties - heat sealable, high stiffness, good oxygen barrier, and good slip properties . Due to the nature of this film, the film manufacturer recommends that the bags are used within 6 months and stored in suitable conditions. Recommended storage conditions are away from local heat sources, out of direct sunlight, and ideally below 30 degrees Celsius.

If you are thinking of switching from Polypropylene bags to compostable Nativia® bags we highly recommend that you request a sample first to try with your product as Nativia does have a slightly different feel to Polypropylene.

Nativia ® can be industrially composted and will disintegrate in six months to CO2, water and humus, a soil nutrient. It can also be mechanically and chemically recycled (not with other plastics because it has a lower melting temperature) and it can be incinerated. Nativia ® films do not biodegrade in landfill conditions.
