If you find yourself searching for an innovative packaging solution that sets you apart from the crowd, you might have considered conventional options like grey mailing bags or non-recycled alternatives. However, when it comes to sustainable packaging that's not just about appearances but also about making a meaningful impact on the environment and your brand image, our compostable bags are the perfect choice.

Distinguishing Material: Corn Starch vs. Sugar Cane
One of the key differentiators that sets our compostable bags apart from the competition is the material they are made from. While most competitors opt for sugar cane-based bags, we utilize corn starch as the primary component. This fundamental difference in bag materials leads to significant variations in composition and environmental impact.
Corn Starch Bags: A Sustainable Marvel
Our compostable bags are crafted from renewable resources derived from corn plants. These resources are particularly rich in carbohydrates and are skillfully processed into a bioplastic material known as Polylactic Acid (PLA). The journey begins with the harvesting of corn, followed by the extraction of starch. Subsequently, the starch is subjected to fermentation and processing, resulting in the creation of PLA. This bioplastic is then used to craft our bags through extrusion and molding processes. Importantly, corn starch bags are inherently compostable under specific conditions, breaking down into harmless carbon dioxide and water when exposed to the right environmental factors.
Sugar Cane Bags: The Not-So-Compostable Option
In contrast, sugar cane bags are produced from the fibers and pulp of sugar cane plants. Like corn starch bags, these bags originate from a renewable resource known as bioethylene, which is employed in the creation of Bio-Polyethylene (BIO-PE), a type of bioplastic. The process involves collecting sugar cane, extracting its fibers and pulp, and then converting the raw material into BIO-PE through Polymerization. However, it's crucial to note that sugar cane bags are not genuinely compostable. While some manufacturers may enhance the bags' biodegradability under specific conditions, corn starch bags consistently degrade entirely under the same circumstances.
A Sustainable Investment in the Future
Choosing compostable bags is not just a matter of environmental consciousness; it's a wise investment in the long-term sustainability of your business. By making this shift, you contribute to reducing our collective dependence on fossil fuels and pave the way for a more environmentally friendly future. Our customers have begun to realize these significant shifts in the packaging market and are actively seeking sustainable options.
