Frequently Asked Questions

What happens if these bags end up in landfill?

These bags are designed to be disposed of by composting - either at home or in an industrial composter. The good news is that if they do end up in landfill, they won't release anything environmentally harmful into the soil or environment (including methane).

What happens if these bags end up in the sea?

NatureFlex was tested to and passed the ASTM D7081 standard. This standard demands 30% biodegradation in 30 days in seawater, which was achieved.

This standard is currently ‘dormant’ pending future new standards. The film manufacturer believes that NatureFlex’s biodegradation in such an environment would be roughly linear (i.e. expect 50% biodegradation in 50 days, etc…) It also fully passes the physical disintegration tests of the standard and also passes the marine-ecotoxicity tests.

Would the film be suitable for washed salad leaves (slightly damp when they go in the bag)?

The film will tend to soften over time. It would be OK for short-term use but we wouldn’t recommend it for longer use eg: supermarket bagged salad leaves…
