Compostable materials break down into non-toxic components and the non-toxic residue can be cycled back into the soil to safely support plant life.
Why compostable packaging matters
In a world full of multi-layered flexible plastic pouches that are difficult to recycle, we developed a press-to-close stand-up pouch for Georgian Bay Granola that is fully compostable, resulting in fewer pouches that end up in landfills.
Designed with very good oxygen and moisture barrier, the pouch structure is made with renewable materials consisting of wood pulp and corn stock.
Source reduction with compostable materials
Recognizing source reduction as the top component of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Waste Hierarchy, the compostable Georgian Bay Granola pouch uses only two layers of film consisting of:
- wood-pulp based cellophane.
- corn-based polybutylene succinate (PBS).
These materials break down into non-toxic components and the non-toxic residue can be cycled back into the soil to safely support plant life. This pouch uses less material than standard flexible plastic pouches without sacrificing performance such as heat seal properties and clarity.
The leader in compostable packaging
Having produced more compostable packaging SKU’s than any other packaging supplier, we used our experience to help solve the plastic waste issue and support plant life with the Georgian Bay Granola compostable stand-up pouch.
