Compostable and Bio-degradable Food Grade Cellulose Bags
Totally clear, food grade compostable (biodegradable) cellulose (cellophane) bags. More robust than our standard biofilm card bags. Made in the UK from NatureFlex™ derived from renewable wood pulp. Ideal as alternatives to conventional petrochemical plastic bags for businesses looking to move away from using old carbon (Polyprop and PVC etc). The biodegradable cellulose film is coated with a thin 'PVdC' coating making them suitable for heat sealing and also suitable for food grade use. They can be sealed using a normal heat sealer or by using normal sticky tape or a label such as our print your own recycled self adhesive labels. (Please note, in the interest of hygiene we can only accept returns of food grade cellulose bags that have not been opened. We are happy to supply samples for you to try before you buy.)
These bags are made in the UK from bio-based cellolose film that has been accredited to 'BS EN 13432' and 'OK Compost'. They are also approved for Anaerobic digestion (ISO 15985). The film has also tested to ensure that once composted there are no adverse effects on the plant growth.
Storage: Keep dry and below 30ºC (ideally between 17-23ºC) and away from a local heat source or direct sunlight.
Dimensions are approximate, +/- 5mm.

What is Cellulose?
Cellulose is a substance from a plants cell wall, this can be extracted from waste plant material to produce the bio film used in these bags. Once used, these bags will biodegrade producing CO2 and H2O, these 2 compounds are combined with sunlight and converted into energy by plants in a process called photosynthesis. The resulting tree growth can then be used to produce more bags.
