Compostable Vest Carrier
With recent regulations banning the use of plastic shopping bags, the popularity of compostable bags have grown exponentially.
Vest carrier or commonly referred to as t-shirt bags are well known for its load capacity and strength while being the most economical. They are favored by supermarkets and grocery stores.
The bags are available in any pantone color and with printing up to 10 colors in either flexo or rotogravure printing.
Packaging or products featuring the OK compost INDUSTRIAL label are guaranteed as biodegradable in an industrial composting plant. This applies to all components, inks and additives. The sole reference point for the certification programme is the harmonized EN 13432: 2000 standard: in any event any product featuring the OK compost INDUSTRIAL logo complies with the requirements of the EU Packaging Directive ( 94/62/EEC).
OK Compost HOME – Owing to the comparatively smaller volume of waste involved, the temperature in a garden compost heap is clearly lower and less constant than in an industrial composting environment. This is why composting in the garden is a more difficult, slower-paced process.
OK compost HOME is not based on a standard but is the basis for several standards!
The requirements of the OK compost HOME programme, defined in 2003 and never questioned since then, have served as the basis for the drafting of several standards such as:
- Australia: AS 5810 (2010) – Biodegradable plastics – Biodegradable plastics suitable for home composting
- France: NF T 51800 (2015) – Plastics – Specifications for plastics suitable for home composting
