Film Fit For Home Compost Bins

CUMBRIA, UK

Innovia Films' compostable cellulose-based packaging film, NatureFlex, has been tested for home compostability by the UK's leading consumer body, “Which?” In the May 2009 issue of the Which? Gardening magazine, five compostable materials used in supermarket packaging were tested using a home compost bin in the usual way — filled with garden waste and turned at two- and four-month intervals.

NatureFlex was judged to have “performed brilliantly.” It is described as “very impressive — the material breaks down in just a few weeks.”
