Our compostable sachets are certified according to the European Standards EN 13432 (packaging) and are 100% compostable in an industrial compost installation. This means that you can throw the packaging away in to the same green bin, that you use for the stem ends and leaves and the rest of your house hold green waste.
The composting of packaging should take place in industrial composting plants, under controlled conditions (such as temperature, humidity, aeration and the presence of micro-organisms). Composting is the biodegradation process under aerobic conditions within a time frame of 6-12 weeks. After this time the sachet packaging will break down and return to the earth safely and provide the soil with beneficial nutrients.
The compostable packaging material is a special laminate made of 2 separate organic layers. The ink and the glue are also certified as 100% compostable and of course the cardboard box is easily broken down.
A packaging product can only claim to be 100% compostable when it has the seedling logo as a sign that it has been tested and certified according to strict environmental standards. Our unique sachet is made from certified compostable material and has been independently tested and approved under the European DIN Certco scheme DIN EN 13432.
