Treat for the Earth

The owner of Askinosie Chocolate, Springfield, MO, has a passion for producing premium quality chocolate and a passion for the environment. Shawn Askinosie uses biodegradable NatureFlex from Innovia Films as the inner wrap for his chocolate. Converted by The Revere Group, Seattle, WA, the transparent NatureFlex 120 NVS has high gloss and is semi-permeable to moisture. It also reportedly offers good barrier to gases and aroma, enhanced printability, and controlled slip properties for easier conversion. NatureFlex films are cellulose-based, derived from renewable wood pulp sourced from managed plantations from referenced suppliers operating Good Forestry principals. Says Askinosie, “We chose NatureFlex…because it's a non-genetically modified, wood-based product that is home compostable. … Our use of NatureFlex is just another important example of our concern for the environment.”
