Clear bio-degradable Cellulose Bags

Totally clear, food grade biodegradable plain and gussetted cellulose (cellophane) bags. More robust than our standard biofilm card bags. Made in the UK from biodegradable cellulose derived from renewable wood pulp, making them ideal as a more eco friendly packaging alternative to current polypropylene, PVC bags 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 we are currently upgrading these bags to a new improved cellophane film that has been accredited biodegradable & compostable to 'BS EN 13432' and 'OK Compost'. They are also approved for Anaerobic digestion (ISO 15985) & Marine biodegradation ASTM D6691-09. The film has also tested to ensure that once composted there are no adverse effects on the plant growth. We are hoping to achieve this upgrade for all sizes of our biodegradable cellulose bags by next Spring.

Storage: Keep dry and below 30ºC (ideally between 17-23ºC) and away from a local heat source or direct sunlight.

Dimensions are approximate, +/- 5mm. 

Why use Cellulose? 

  • 100% Natural

  • Excellent gloss and transparency


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, Cellulose (also known as Cellophane) 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.
