Eco-friendly, 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.
The film is fully industrially or mechanically compostable or chemically recycled, according to the EN13432 standard and has achieved the OK BIOBASED certificate from Vincotte. This certification means that it will break down quite quickly into carbon dioxide, water and biomass by microbial digestion in the right conditions.
Nativia® Greeting Card Bags are 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 different feel to Polypropylene.
Nativia® film can be incinerated for energy recovery. Nativia® films do not biodegrade in landfill conditions.
