Compostable Block Bottom SOS Bags with Side Gussets
Our popular Block Bottom SOS Bags are now going to be available in a compostable version - made from Natureflex which is a Home Compostable film made from wood pulp. Home compostable bags can be composted along with your garden waste, and sometimes food waste (depending on local kerbside collections) and will degrade quite quickly.
NatureFlex ™ is a compostable film made from wood pulp. It is certified to the EN 13432 norm for industrially compostable packaging and the Vincotte OK Compost Home standard. It is GM free and sourced from managed locations. This film has excellent properties and is made from renewable, sustainable sources – an environmentally friendly choice. Due to the nature of this film, the film manufacturer recommends that the bags are used within 6 months and stored in suitable conditions. In reality our customers are reporting that they are actually lasting in perfect condition much longer, as long as they are stored correctly. Recommended storage conditions are away from local heat sources, out of direct sunlight, and ideally between 17 and 23 degrees Celsius.
Please note that the bases of these bags are glued rather than heat sealed. The panel which is glued to the base is Natureflex but the glue is not compostable. However the glue makes up less than 1% of the bag and therefore the bag is still classed as home compostable.
The film manufacturer specifically recommends that the films should not be used in applications that would involve processing, treatment or storage at temperatures below −30°C (for example, blast freezing).
