Compostable & Biodegradable Bags

2016 was the hottest year on record. Artic sea ice is at record lows. Oxygen levels in oceans have dropped dramatically. Pollution is so widespread, industrial chemicals have contaminated even the most remote depths of the ocean. In our throw-away culture, there is a high need to create materials that can be less harmful for our environment. NatureFlex™ film is a specialist packaging film used by Direct Packaging Ltd to convert into all styles of bags to support responsible environmental demands. This bio-film is based on renewable resources (wood-pulp from managed plantations) and is fully compostable. Various NatureFlex™ film types can benefit applications eg. Fresh Fruit & vegetables, Bakery products which may require a moisture barrier and a reheatable option for food on the move. A high heat resistance grade such as NE30/NVS can be used in a microwave and conventional ovens Recommended Max 200°C, 30 mins. Biodegradable and compostable packaging materials are two of the new green living trends. We need to focus on making sure that what we throw out from our homes and offices is biodegradable or even compostable. This will get us closer to the goal of making the Earth an eco-friendly place for humans and animals to live together in harmony, if we are willing to understand and invest in the future. We hold many stock sizes of Polypropylene bags and subject to demand will be holding Compostable bags to encourage less waste and more eco-friendliness.
