Know your BIOPAK packaging symbols


These symbols identify packaging that is independently certified as either home or commercially compostable.

Commercially compostable certified products will disintegrate within 84 days and biodegrade within 180 days in industrial composting conditions.

Certified home compostable products will biodegrade within 365 days in home composting conditions.

We list the certification standards and our unique certificate number.

Product Materials

We only use raw materials from responsibly managed plantations, including FSC® certified plantations, to ensure our forests are protected forever.

Our plant-based bioplastic packaging is either home or commercially compostable and has a lower carbon footprint than conventional plastic packaging.

It is not recyclable with conventional non compostable plastics.

Our sugarcane pulp packaging is made from sugarcane pulp (also known as bagasse), a by-product of the sugar refining industry.

Sugarcane pulp packaging can be recycled in the cardboard recycling stream if not contaminated with food.
