Product information (General)

 Compostable products are certified to break down completely into non-toxic components (water, carbon dioxide) that will not harm the environment. Our compostable products are proven to break down within 6 months on land and 2 years in the ocean. This can put your mind at ease, knowing that eventually no trace of your purchase will be left on the planet.

Product information (Cling film)

Our 100% compostable cling film is made up of the following: 

  • About 97% PBAT (polybutylene adipate terephthalate)
    biodegradable & compostable
  • about 3% PLA (Polylactide, which is made from
    waste corn and other plants)
    biodegradable & compostable

PBAT (polybutylene adipate terephthalate) is a fully biodegradable polymer. When buried in real soil environments, it breaks down completely and leaves no toxic residues behind.

Polylactic Acid (PLA) is different than most thermoplastic polymers in that it is derived from renewable resources like corn starch or sugar cane. It is therefore fully plant based.

Yes! Our cling film is suitable for home composting as well as industrial composting. Whether home or commercially composted, the bioplastics will break down without creating methane or emitting any toxins harmful to our environment.

Yes! Our compostable cling film is certified with the European standard EN 13432. This defines the characteristics a finished product must fulfil in order to be recovered through organic recovery. This certificate certifies the product as compostable and fits these criteria:

  • is biodegradable under composting conditions.
  • disintegrates completely in one composting cycle.
  • has no toxic effects and does not release heavy metals over a given value into the compost
  • has no negative effect on the composting process itself.

The certificate is achieved through rigorous testing including Disintegration test ; Non-toxic test, Heavy metal content test ; Compost test. 

We do not recommend using this product in the freezer, there are other green alternatives that suit this more including reusable tubs and beeswax wraps. 

Just like plastic cling film, we do not recommend using this product in the microwave. A simple plate or cover for your food is a better green option!

Product information (Tin foil)

Yes! Our tin foil is 100% recycled and endlessly recyclable- now that’s what we call a circular economy! 

Our recycled tin foil takes 95% less energy to produce than regular tin foil. This is because the foil is made from Post consumer recycled aluminium- meaning it has had a life previously. The extraction of aluminium is very energy intensive, therefore creating more energy and subsequently more carbon entering the earth’s atmosphere. 

Product information (Face masks)

Our 100% compostable face masks are made from 100% PLA (Polylactic acid) The PLA is a biopolymer made from sustainable and renewable resources creating a soft texture. It is a lightweight, fine-filament web featuring an embossed point bond pattern. 

Yes! The face masks are 100% certified for home composting and industrial composting. 

Product information (Aprons)

Our 100% compostable aprons are made from Mater-bi. Mater-bi is a compostable bioplastic and is made from a mix of renewable resources such as corn starch, cellulose and vegetable oil.  More about Mater-bi as a material can be found here: https://www.novamont.com/eng/mater-bi 

Yes! The face masks are 100% certified for home composting and industrial composting.
