Do you want the packaging you use for your produce to reflect the ethos of sustainability and to contribute to the circular economy?
BioBag Ireland & UK is now able to supply ‘glass clear‘ compostable bags to farmers to package leaves such as kale, spinach, rocket and lettuce. Consumers can put our bags straight into their organic waste/ Brown Bins for composting once the contents are gone. Our bags are certified compostable by all the major agencies worldwide and will compost down completely in both industrial compostors and home compost piles, leaving no harmful plastic residues behind.
